TIME WARS by Mark Fisher

This is all about what has happened to the dream of a world where automation was supposed to free humans from the drudgery and danger of work and give us all a better life with more leisure time.
Check it out here at Gonzo.
There is so much in it that you really need to read it yourself.
Note that not all of this apply to my own life - somehow I have avoided the worst parts, for instance I simply refuse to live in a permanent state of "precarity" - but I am an exception rather than the rule: still the big picture shown here is not pretty.
