Early Times

why was laziness considered a serious crime during the early times?

'Early times'?

Well it wasn't - almost a third of the year in pre industrial societies was spent on 'high days and holidays'.

It was in the modern industrial society (from 16th - early 20th centuries) when the employment relationship was purely between those who bought others labour and those who sold it, when its been one long confrontation between those who want their workers never to spend a minute on anything other that selling their labour power and the workers who fought for the 50 hour week then the 46 hours week then the 38 hour week.
The employers , especially in Protestant societies drew on the Protestant Ethic (best exemplified by the writings of Richard Baxter) and 'the Spirit of Capitalism' , (the writings of Benjamin Franklin.

It was in this affinity between the Protestant Ethic and Spirit of Capitalism that the discourse of 'the sinfulness of laziness' was created'

ps the employers in our largely non Protestant Ethic societies today have done a clever trick - gone to the global labour market where they can buy cheap labour that is so unprotected it has to work virtually every hour of the week. This means they no longer have to exploit every single worker in their own society but rely on them instead to get so in debt buying their commodites that they nevertheless end up spending longer hours at work than their parents did.
