I agree that we should fundamentally examine how we spend our time, and that that should be something people value as much as if not more than money. I just don't think campaigning for shorter working hours is the way to change people's values, I think you need to change people's values so they demand more free time. Otherwise, even if you succeed, you end up with a bunch of people who have no idea what to do with their free time, so they end up using it for unfulfilling things, don't value it, and then in two generations you're back at a 50 hour average workweek wondering why the stupid proles don't want value their freedom more than their money.
