One of my favorite TV shows is the shockingly profane Deadwood. My favorite quote from the show is when George Hearst says to Sheriff Bullock "I'm having a conversation you cannot hear."
The Fuller quote fascinates me as I believe it is a conversation I cannot hear. Look Fuller up if you've never heard of him. Who knows, maybe he was crazy when he said this, but coming from him it is so upside down to me that it really is fascinating.
The person who Tweeted it out said "rethink everything."
The pursuit of making a living in an enjoyable vocation can give someone purpose. Obviously there are plenty of people who do not enjoy their work, probably the majority of people but even the pursuit of the right work can give purpose.
Maybe he was making an argument for basic income before the term existed--well, probably not.
Speaking of Deadwood
