the End Of Work, 'You See a New Class Forming'
The idea of a society not based on work is so utterly alien to any notion we have about how to organize large numbers of people into a social whole that we are faced with the prospect of having to rethink the very basis of the social contract.

/ Managerial / Technical "New Class"
We are now dealing with New Age, New Class "I'm #1" people who deal in "situational ethics" where it isn't bad to cheat, steal, or lie- it's just bad to GET CAUGHT at it. It's the money that matters, baby. These people are MUCH more concerned about their BMW getting washed and polished, and the performance of their portfolio than they are about "doing the right thing" or even doing a GOOD JOB when MEDIOCRITY and LOW EFFORT will suffice- Leonard Henderson
