Conspiracy Theory: Job Hatred Minimizes Social Unrest

Matt likes to complain about the D.C. Metro. Most publicly on Twitter, but also via text message, GChat, and Facebook.

As of today, I mostly complain about my job. I’d like to complain about social/community issues like public transit, but for eight hours of my day, I’m in my cubicle.

Matt loves his job.

This got me thinking: are most jobs intentionally mundane and annoying to keep the bulk of the population’s anger turned towards their companies rather than serious social issues?
