85 years later it still speak volumes especially for the overworked. I guess it kind of makes me a bit of both, firstly overworked for a number of years and now leisurely a capitalist, getting returns to fund the industry to produce even more stuff we all don't need.

Ironic? This is something I need to think and explore further. Bet people will say if everyone is like you (not really possible I think) then the economy will collapse.
