Positive thinking in the workplace: Kevin Carson in this and a followup post has a very funny piece on the latest craze in 'motivational' books for the corporate workplace.

In true anarchist style, Kevin concludes: "The lesson we ought to be learning is just the opposite: to instinctively doubt anything anybody in authority tells you."

Let's face it: the boss wants you to work harder to generate more profits, or replace you altogether with somone or something that could achieve that goal better. The only thing that makes it bearable is decent wages and conditions, and for that some solidarity could be useful.
