This essay is a gem. I listened to it. Pithy and clear. Vocation, labor, support vs. pay. The key question I was left with is what is the "government"? Or what level of "government" would I entrust with guiding my labor to where it is most needed? I will say that thinking of my own gifts as if from the outside is helpful to me. From that point of view it is obvious that teaching children is my vocation and someone more gifted and experienced should fix my house. I split my attention in a hundred ways because the "labor market" puts a lot of "services" out of my reach. And so I do most things myself and teach a lot less.
