Defeated

More and more, we take it for granted that work must be destitute of pleasure.  More and more, we assume that if we want to be pleased we must wait until evening, or the weekend, or vacation, or retirement….We are defeated at work because our work gives us no pleasure.  We are defeated at home because we have no pleasant work there.  We turn to the pleasure industries for relief from our defeat and we are again defeated, for the pleasure industries can thrive and grow only upon our dissatisfaction with them.
