Tech Republic has an article about why remote working makes sense. It really does, but it also depends on the worker. My husband manages a global computer network from a closet in one of our rooms. Well, the desk is in the closet, his chair is out in the room. Both my husband and I earned our degrees and graduate degrees remotely. We are both capable of, and comfortable with, working unsupervised. Of course, not all positions are conducive to working remotely. You can’t cut hair remotely, but lots of work can be done remotely perhaps freeing up hours in commuting time a day.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live
Harsh, but history shows that peoples, and generations, ascribe to certain inculcated behaviors. Assimilation is a consequence—or not assimilating or being accepted.
