The Happy Mediocrity

On Leisure in America:

“The prospect of an inevitable increase in leisure time confounds and frightens America. Psychiatrists report alarming increases in “weekend syndrome” and “Sunday neurosis”; sociologists meet to discuss the potentially disastrous effects of a three-day workweek, and foundations channel millions into research on the leisure problem. Leisure doesn’t give us a moment’s rest.”
