a Sabbath thought

We've worked way too hard the past 10,000 years. It's time for a day of rest. A global sabbath, a jubilee, an exodus, a revolution. Then we can live on the fruits of our labor, and alienated work will become obsolete. As Ernst Bloch and St. Augustine put it, we can sing "Dies septimus nos ipsi erimus"- the 7th day will be us. That's when human history really will begin.
