Here's an example from the other day: We were hiking around Mt. Cook and passed a girl wearing a t-shirt that said:
Born to freefall [skydiving], forced to work.This is wrong, of course.*
Except in examples of slavery and fascist regimes, we are not forced to work. We choose to work because we want the wages that come from that work. We may prefer one job over another or one combination of wages, benefits and discretion over another, but -- in the end -- we are free to work or not. As Anne pointed out, the girl wearing the shirt will be prematurely depressed about her work, since see sees it more as slavery than the result of her free choice.
Bottom Line: The glass may be half full or half-empty, but it's your choice whether or not to drink it.
* I will not get into evolution and freefall, except to say that very few wild monkeys are spotted with parachutes.
