@G0mMt3: I don't know if you can compare farming to being a cog in a corporate machine - in the former case, you're working directly for yourself and your family, at least if you happen to be growing edible crops. Then there is crafting, where people use an acquired talent to make things for others, and there is a lot of community and humanity in that. But industrial and corporate environments just tend to treat people like galley slaves, having them do some small part of a greater operation all day, every day, with no real personal meaning for the employee in the task being performed. You might try to find meaning and satisfaction in it, but I think that's very difficult with, well, most jobs out there. You almost have to be doing something working for yourself or something very creative to find that old-fashioned kind of satisfaction in it. That's my impression, anyway.
