Joe Rogan unleashing a brutally true perspective on the Society Trap that so many people unknowingly fall into. From exchanging goods directly in self sufficient societies based on contribution to, in Joe Rogan’s words:
“Selling your life to sit in a box and work for a machine. An uncaring machine that demands productivity that doesn’t understand you and doesn’t want to understand you.”…”There’s no natural behaviour. Everyone is wearing clothes they don’t want to wear. Everybody is showing up and doing something they don’t want to do. They have no connection to it. That’s the problem with our society… And then what’s the reward for all this stuff? Go home and get a big TV. Go home your going to get a shiny belt buckle. Your going to get that dream car. Every week we’re chasing down this new object and every week we are trying to fill this hole in this sad shadow of a life we’ve been left with after work. That you worked 8 to whatever hours a day plus commuting and that is your life, that’s your real fucking life. And most of us have committed to that and we understand that it’s a trap because we got out of it. But for the people that are in it, alot of the time they don’t even understand it’s a trap”
Society Trap, the video you watched above, is quite possibly the most powerful 6 minute lecture on society that’s on the internet. And it is taken from the Joe Rogan Experience podcast #389 with Brian Redban, you can listen the full episode from below.
