And that’s the rub: There is a capitalistic showmanship in the way we revere people who wake up early. The idea that our day should be stuffed to the brim with productivity is less about what makes us happy and more about making sure we’re all good conformist office workers.
The part that gets me is the superiority early risers often have, at least online. (Follow these tips and you, too can be an early riser.) I don’t get it. Such a silly and inane thing to staple pride to. The world is a damn mess and half the country is a few hundred dollars from broke and that’s what we’re reading? How to be a conformist?
Where’s the posts about how to be less conformist? How to make the world a better place? We need less capitalistic showmanship and more humanity. Thanks for writing this. Sweet dreams, it’s about that time! :)
