Isn’t the real question this: Is the work worth doing? Am I, a human being, working for what I really need and want–or for what the State or advertisers tell me I want? Do I choose? I think that’s what anarchism comes down to. Do I let my choices be made for me, and so go along with the power game, or do I choose, and accept the responsibility for my choice? In other words, am I going to be a machine-part, or a human being?"
