The perfect employee

“Creative action, one might say, is at any level encompassed within a larger system of actions in which it becomes socially meaningful – that is in which it takes on social value.

All creative action is to some degree revolutionary; but to be revolutionary to any significant degree, it must change that larger structure within which it is embedded.

At which point one can no longer imagine one is simply working on objects, but must recognise that one is also working on people.” David Graeber

In other words, the ‘perfect employee’ is made by how you choose to employ them.
