Such a fascinating article. Always appreciate reading your point of view Katrina. American society currently caters to those who run themselves ragged--that is not healthy. Yes, there are multiple reasons for expressed "laziness"--apathy, mental health issues, etc. While I appreciate John McMahon's comments, I wonder about whether or not apathy and mental illness are symptoms of a sick society that places impossible expectations on the lower and working class that is making the Jeff Bezos' of the world richer and richer. Oh wait...I'm not really wondering. I firmly believe our work culture is creating these sicknesses. It is depressing.
