The concept of laziness is a topic unto itself. Pure laziness does not exist because such persons would work at not
working, or they would work to avoid
work. Hence, they wind up working when fleeing work.
There is only relative laziness, based on a cost-benefit analysis. Someone says, I will put this much effort into something to achieve X, but not put that much effort into it to achieve Y.
But from a utilitarian perspective, if EVERYone were masters at the LoA, and they manifested a world of non-workers, the world would grind to a halt. That is why, on the whole, LoA cannot simply be about "not working."
