An argument against "Purpose."

AnecdotesPhilosophyRants & Confessions

"…Where was that idea thought up that you had to work, that you had to work to make a means? And a part of that goes to government, and a part of it goes to the corporation. And the corporation gets the CEO gets paid, and then you kind of get the leftover residue of it is that the purpose is for us to work and work and work.…"

Does life begin or end when you find "Purpose?"

"…I've always been bothered by the idea of purpose as well, for a few reasons. The first is it seems like it's a destination, you know, instead of the journey. And even the concept of a journey I don't like because it implies a beginning point, an end point, instead of an embracing of every single moment of our existence.

"…But when you start to get into the dating world and things of that nature, you become defined by these labels, ones that aren't really of your own making, but more it's an evaluation of your value.

If you're on your purpose, people will respect you. Man and woman will respect you.…"

"…Jay Z and Beyonce still has problems. Kanye west still has issues. Elon Musk has issues. Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos. Shall I go on? Their life isn't perfect. I mean, sure, they're not struggling in the sense of nourishment of food, but they still can be susceptible to cancer, diabetes, etc.…"
