Work/Life Separation

Is any one else confused about this whole idea of work/life separation deal that’s in the press these days? I realize it isn’t new but it seems to be in the press a lot more these days. It was the topic on the CBC this morning.

The gist? We’re losing control of the work/life separation as the companies are taking over our home lives. I understand this but I also maintain that this is partially a new concept isn’t it? New as in since the industrial revolution.

These days I’m committed to the exact opposite, that is thinning and eliminating the work/life separation. It makes my life simpler if it’s just all one and I don’t have to think about if I’m working now or I’m living now.
