The straightforwardness of physical work

“The price we pay for the complexity of life is too high. When you think of all the effort you have to put in, telephonic, technological and relational, to alter even the slightest bit of behavior in this strange world we call social life, you are left pining for the straightforwardness of primitive peoples and their physical work.”

Jean Baurdrillard ~ French postmodern cultural theorist, sociologist, philosopher (1929-2007)
