Fetishising adult life Care more about the idea of something, rather than the thing itself Examples: academia, corporate office work, (police, camping, army, cabin) Laten infatilisation? life truly starting too late lack of other goals -> turning work into personality
There is an increasing fetishisation of academic and corporate life amongst young people today. They fawn over clock app videos of office workers toiling away doing absolutely nothing. Longing to be a “dark academic”, reading dusty books, the topic of which is irrelevant, as long as it’s leather bound and hasn’t been touched for at least 50 years.
