David Graeber has put forward the notion of bullshit jobs in recent years, and I highly recommend that you watch his interviews and lectures on the subject. However there is another bullshit trend happening…

More specifically, we assume that everyone’s goal is to simply make money…and nothing could be further than the truth.
