I found this interview when researching James Hillman online.
It made me laugh, and I’d like to share it on my blog because it ticks so many boxes for me.
Like – is what I do ‘enough’ to validate me as a useful person in society? Should I give up being an artist and ‘do something useful’ instead?!
Hillman: I think we’re miserable partly because we have only one god, and that’s economics. Economics is a slave-driver. No one has free time; no one has any leisure. The whole culture is under terrible pressure and fraught with worry. It’s hard to get out of that box. That’s the dominant situation all over the world.
