The Good Employer’s Manifesto

Your heart must earn a living wage.
Your bones must contribute
to the well being of the few.

We cannot afford illness.
It is unprofitable.
Your breath must be privatised
for the good of all.

If your health fails
it can easily be replaced
by cheaper foreign imports.

Appreciate your standard of living.
It is higher than your ancestors.
We have your wellbeing in mind.

Your health is a lottery.
Achieve a certain number of workdays
we will enter you
into a competition
to win an iPad.

Support your wellbeing.
Breathe easily with us.

The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.
