A Class Act

A few generations back you spent most of every day hunting and gathering shoots seeds rodents larvae etc. to eat. Once you were all full, you and the gang might amuse each other with stories or music or pictures or dancing. And if one of you had said, “Hey, tell you what. I'll free you from the drudgery of dancing and singing and painting and storytelling if you'll gather enough extra food every day for me to eat,” you'd have said, “Screw that. You're talking about the fun part.” So why do we put up with it now?
