This morning I ran across “The Idle Manifesto,” written by a British organization called the Idle Foundation.

[T]he Idle Foundation wants to encourage a world where people engage in activities they actively enjoy, and we believe that – as far as possible – free individuals should only work for as long as they want to each day. In other words work is built around leisure, and leisure should not be crammed between the vacant spaces of working life as a mere afterthought.

While it’s officially non-political, these days it feels like any defense of idleness and leisure is inherently political.

And while the Foundation seems have no affiliation with Monty Python alum Eric Idle, the banner does have a certain Terry Gilliam animation-esque quality.
