But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.

Anonymous said: I'm interested in getting into Octavia Butler's work, but the size of her oeuvre is a little intimidating. Do you have any recommendations on where to start?

afrofuturistaffair:

I personally think Kindred and Wild Seed are the best to start with for easing your way into the mind and worlds of Mama Butler.  Pros for Kindred as your first is that its a stand-alone novel, one of her earlier works, and deals explicitly with enslavement in the antebellum South. Wild Seed is part of the Patternist series, so if you start there, be prepared to get hooked and have to read the rest of the books in the series. But anywhere you choose to start will be amazing and addictive. - rasheedah

Do others have thoughts?   

Kindred is a good place to start, but for someone who would like to read something in one sitting, I’d try Bloodchild and Other Stories.

Bullet points, I’m feeling like using bullet points, especially since nothing much is going on in my library world outside of summer reading club.
