  1. Why idleness is the ultimate goal of any people?
  2. How the structure of our societies prevent us from reaching this goal?

The relationship between human beings and work or idleness has been widely debated by many philosophers and writers, including the British poet and novelist, Samuel Johnson. The author of the Dictionary of the English language also wrote poems on idleness during the eighteenth century. Advocating the fact that "we would all be idle if we could" is not a revolutionary saying, but I would like to question the term of idleness itself. That's why I will try to explain why idleness is the ultimate goal of any individual and will depict how our societies are structured to prevent us from reaching this goal.
