Zero-work is an interesting issue. When you work, even when that is zero-work like in some bureaucratic apparatus or even negative work like in army or in war industry, you are said to be useful, worth of something earning your living. The rest, those outside of capitalized work, are said to be waisters, spongers and bums; they're marginalized, chased and mentally tortured by those who have adopted protestant work-ethic.
I'm proud to be a waister. I do a lot of things outside wage-slavery. I can play music, write software applications, have discussions and sex, cook food etc.etc.
People just want to suppress that kind of creativity reducing its value but they wouldn't be able to live in that kind of society where all non-capitalized, priceless (as opposite to valueless) work have been abandoned.
