I've spent the last few weeks sick, working in the office while sick. An HR representative reached out to my boss and suggested I "work from home." My boss hates when people work from home because she can't get a hold of them. I straight responded to her that the company did not pay me enough to have a living space large enough to have a desk at home. I could not work from home on the salary I am paid. If they want me to work while sick, they'll have to risk getting sick, too. Or pay me enough to have a place to live that isn't so tiny I can barely fit beds into it for my family. I literally have room only for our beds, a dining table, a sofa and a bean bag. None of us have dressers, even.

Produce like a Westerner but live like a machine seems to be the message.

It's like the motto of the silicon valley.

Yes and yes. But not any good type of libertarian - it's all people who believe in the capitalist system. A bunch of ancaps who think the government just gets in the way.
