Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're saying people should do what they have a comparative advantage at, for the benefit of society, regardless of their personal preference. Taking this to the extreme you end up with people who are unhappy because they are required to take on more responsibility than they wish to. It is possible for people to feel like they prefer to do something else than that which will give them (and society) the most material wellbeing.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
