Work Is The Connection Of A Person With Society

200.04Question: You say that a person is obliged to work even if he has a means of subsistence. Why?

Answer: It is obvious that society needs his work. Does he work for money or in order to give society what he can give? We don’t see labor as a necessity. We regard it a necessary human participation in the life of society.

Question: So a person who has a livelihood must work in order to connect with other people?

Answer: Of course! Work is a connection with other people, with the general structure of society, humanity. He is obliged to do this precisely in order to be a human being, to be a part of society, not in order to earn money. Work is a means of being included in the human community.
