It is definitely interesting how the idea of selling your time for money is installed in children at a very young age. It seems as though parents are projecting on their children the ideals of the system that they are functioning in. But as it was said earlier, very often parents have to coerce the children to work by threatening to take away some freedom. Children may think differently about the system in which they live if they had been raised seeing everyone work together in the house and thought that maintaining the house was a communal process, not the mom's job, which they should be paid to help with. Do you think people would be more open to communal processes if they were raised this way? And if so, are there ways in which this economic process is then taking on the characteristics of a class process, because it is learned?
