To be an employee is the effect of a condition of being
Q. In your book you express an absolute opposition to the employee status of the vast majority of the society. Are you for the dissolution or dismantling of the big multinational companies, and their substitution with many small personal service-providing businesses? To what degree this is feasible in this age of huge dinosaur enterprises of mondialization?
A. Employment is a modern form of slavery. To be an employee is not a social status, a role in an organization or the effect of a contract. To be an employee is the effect of a condition of being. The Book is also a manifesto announcing the fall of the employment age. Organizations of the future will need people with a much higher level of responsibility that today’s employees can offer. The rational, provincial, nineteenth-century capitalism that dominated the economy for more than two hundred years, is turning in front of our eyes into an intuitive, emotional, creative capitalism of worldwide dimensions. With it, a need has been growing to transform an economy based mainly on slavery or more or less heavy types of subalternity, in an economy based on freedom, on creativity, on men who love what they do and work for passion.
