I don't know why you think anyone finds purpose in middle-class office jobs. Have you worked one? What was your experience?

I'll look for the article (I hope it's a thinkpiece so Frown will read it) but there was a post-AI job-type argument that said there are 5 or 6 C's that will constitute work that robots won't be used for. that's what I'm imagining people being slotted into. And that's generally where the fulfilment comes in. In helping other people.
