    Correcting harmful work and moving items from one place to another is part of the daily grind to provide for basic needs.Society functions as a collective. When we all do our jobs, our basic needs are met. Then, the opportunity to explore one’s intellectual side flourishes. A person is not defined by what one does for a living but instead by what you have done to help others.
