I'll agree that it's time to start thinking of a new paradigm. Most people enjoy "work" in order to have some purpose and stimulation in life.
They do? Got any support for that? I would have assumed the exact opposite. That a vast majority of people work simply because they "have to" ie.. to pay the rent and buy food. And if given any choice they wouldn't want to work.

I personally never enjoyed work, per se. Which is not to say I hated my job, just that it never appeared on my list of "things I want to do." Did I like some of the people I worked with? Absolutely. A few of them are still my very best friends even though we haven't worked together in many years.

I worked in an "education" company, and we before we got bought up by a larger company, our CEO used to give us these pep talks about the company and how great it was we were helping kids learn and make their lives better. I was sitting in the back of the room thinking, "Hey, it's great the kids are getting helped, but the only reason I am here is because you are paying me."
