The paradox of freedom through work has been constantly exploited as a euphemism for the imposition of restrictions. Within the constant dynamics of the free market, the statement by Byung Chul-Han in The Society of Fatigue stands out, where he affirms “the subject of the performance is abandoned to forced freedom or the free obligation to maximize performance. Overwork and performance are aggravated and become self-exploitation. This is much more effective than exploitation by others since it is accompanied by a feeling of freedom ”. As a consequence of this constant search for freedom, we submit to a self-imposed regime that leads to burnout that manifests itself in what Mark Fisher would call a mental health aporia.
