Jobism is the belief that jobs are the solution
Jobism views any job-creating economic activity as success
"That 50 per cent, or more, of society's labor is wasted has been known
"We find all the no-life-support-wealth-producing people going to their 1980 jobs in their cars or buses, spending trillions of dollar's worth of petroleum daily to get to their no-wealth-producing jobs. It doesn't take a computer to tell you that it will save both Universe and humanity trillions of dollars a day to pay them handsomely to stay at home." –Buckminster Fuller, Critical Path (xxxv).
Jobism is a non-critical loyalty and belief in the jobs system. In all modern economies there is now a total loyalty to the idea of jobs as a good in and of themselves regardless of the actual impact the job has on people, environment or other living things. Jobism means there is no overview or critical thinking about whether or not the activity requried by the job (including indirect activities such as having millions of people drive back and forth each day to makework jobs) might be wasteful or harmful. Jobism has hidden how the jobs system is a bane and not a boon to people and the planet. Jobism is also one of the main obstacles to support for guaranteed livable income (aka basic income, citizen's income, guaranteed annual income).
Both the political left and right believe different variations of the job system, but the result is still the same: vast quantities of human and natural resources are wasted. Under the jobs system, there is no differentiation between work that is necessary and beneficial and work that is unnecessary or harmful. As long as it makes the economy grow, then it is considered 'productive' and beneficial.
Jobism forces human activities into two categories: paid work (visible and financially rewarded) and unpaid work (invisible and financially unrewarded). Paid work is considered a valid activity and unpaid work is generally not considered valid or 'real' work. This means that many harmful, wasteful and unnecessary activities are financially encouraged and many forms of beneficial work (e.g. unpaid caregiving) are financially discouraged.
The toll of jobism is huge because all the resources used to support the infrastructure of the job system cannot be used to meet people's real wants and needs.
The job system is a massive wasteful resource diversion machine.
