No one should ever work.

Work is the source of nearly all the misery in the world. Almost any evil you’d care to name comes from working or from living in a world designed for work. In order to stop suffering, we have to stop working.

An online discussion about Bob Black’s essay The Abolition of Work, hosted by FORGED BOOKS, Manchester’s anarchist reading group.

Conversation will take place on the jitsi platform here: https://8X8.vc/forged/books

We recommend the Chromium browser on desktop: https://download-chromium.appspot.com/ Chrome should also work. We couldn’t get Firefox to work with Jitsi. If you don’t have Chromium or Chrome and don’t want to install a new browser you can use one of Jitsi’s apps here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron/releases/tag/v2.0.2 - you will need to change ‘Server URL’ in settings to https://8X8.vc/ and join the room /forged/books For mobile devices try: https://jitsi.org/downloads/ - you will need to change ‘Server URL’ in settings to https://8X8.vc/ and join the room /forged/books In our test session, the mobile apps kept losing their connection. If you’re really stuck, you could try joining the meeting room /forged/books with the desktop and mobile apps listed here: https://download.8X8.vc/
