I’m watching Bald and Bankrupt on YouTube (an English Russian-speaking guy who travels rural areas in the former Soviet states and speaks with people - recommended!) Most of the people he meets are dirt poor, but they seem so happy and carefree. Meanwhile, in the US you have biglaw companies who think that an extra 5 figured sum of money will make associates happy to ruin their lives. The human and their mind was not created to live in today’s pure capitalist society.

What does 1) have to do with 2)? Look, I’m sure there’s an ENDLESS number of jobs in the legal field that do not involve grinding at someone else’s law firm and contributing to the advancement of evil, deep, late-stage capitalism. There are human rights, international relations, emerging market finance jobs there for the taking. They will allow you to make a difference. By all means, do not ruin your life at this terrible job you have. Take action.

I assume that to work with emerging markets finance, you have to be qualified in those jurisdictions?

Also like, have some perspective. There are people who do extremely challenging jobs in the US and abroad who make a hell of a lot less than we do for the pleasure. I’m not sure I’d be looking to the poor for inspiration porn.

It’s a rough profession, for sure, but the idea that we are all ruining our lives is a little wild. Interesting career choice if you hate capitalism, but go take that biglaw resume line and do something that you find to be the least unpleasant way to earn money to support yourself and carry on.

Lol I watch him to wind down before bedtime, not to philosophize. Weird dude.
