Anticareerist Memes: Why Must We Pay? (Kellia Ramares-Watson)

Why must we pay to live on the planet we're born on?The late writer and feminist activist Kellia Ramares-Watson, whom I met at a conference just a few months before she died in 2015, often asked: “Why must we pay to live on the planet we’re born on?”

It’s a question designed to spur critical thinking about the oppressive systemic requirement that all able-bodied adults “earn a living” or else suffer the consequences.  In honor of Kellia’s work, I decided to turn her words into a meme.

Sure beats those insipid “inspirational” quotes, doesn’t it?

I think she would approve.  Rest In Power, Kellia.
