Fuck a world of forced specialization. You can be a farmer AND a philosopher. You can be a carpenter and a portraitist. You can be a lawyer and an electrician. You can be a mycologist and a flautist, a bookbinder and a skateboarder, a chemist and a stripper, an upholsterer and an Aramaic scholar, a gymnast and a fisherman. You can be so many things, any combination of things that you love or like or are interested in or want to try. Idgaf! If you only want to do one thing? That's fucking awesome and good too!

But I refuse to accept a world where a farmer must be just a farmer, a carpenter just a carpenter. Labors of body, mind, and spirit can all fit together, no matter what capitalism says.

@bedap personally I'd appreciate more lawyers with practical skills because even under capitalism they're needed - lawyer mechanics come to mind!

hence why my minor is in computer science so I'm actually doing something and have at least some expertise to offer.

@PinkCathodeCat out of curiosity, what's the need for lawyer mechanics?

@bedap Better understanding of the validity of "this mimicks me" when sussing out a patent infringement claim is the first thing that comes to mind. @PinkCathodeCat
