 I don't think that's the meaning of this.  We work way more than what we need to provide for our immediate needs.  All of that extra productivity gets dumped into mindless consumerism and excess that ends up robbing us of what we truly want in life. 
 Which is why I blame the broken Money. Just don’t want to see work demonized. So many people work hard every single day so we can maximize our time on this planet.
