Working With Your Hands

"A good job requires a field of action where you can put your best capacities to work and see an effect in the world. Academic credentials do not guarantee this.

Nor can big business or big government — those idols of the right and the left — reliably secure such work for us. Everyone is rightly concerned about economic growth on the one hand or unemployment and wages on the other, but the character of work doesn’t figure much in political debate."

This article reaffirmed the values I learned in political theory classes. I can't wait to read his book!

Does working at a keyboard count as working with your hands?
