The methods of the achievement society
The perfidious methods for forcing people to achieve more and more. How all increases in productivity have been withheld from citizens in the last decades.
What happened to the results of the enormous increase in productivity of the last 50 years? It should have been enough to create paradise. But let us compare the situation of an ordinary worker in the years 1960 and 2010. Looking optimistically into the future in 1960, the fear of unemployment is rife in 2010, of redundancy, and life as a temporary worker or on benefits.
Where has all this increased productivity gone? How did the system manage to prevent all this progress from reaching the broad masses of the population in the form of a secure life without nagging worries about the future?
Because the achievement society system always makes decisions that promote instability. To create unstable situations. Instability as a means of forcing people to achieve more.
This simple sentence mirrors the entire horror of the achievement society, the whole disaster of how the increased productivity of the last 50 years has not led to a more stable, secure standard of living.
But with this method of forcing instability as a means of economic growth, the achievement society has condemned itself to ruin.
