    And how will life look like in that future? Are we all going to 'work' on a public YoutuBe doing community work? Document our adventures in the space of voluntary work to restore nature, culture. Archeological exploration/adventures, car racing, whatever suits you?

    I think we are pretty close.

    The more automation kills jobs, the more the remaining jobs are valuable and should - accordingly - be higher taxed, better payed. At the same time those jobs are becoming more attractive.

    Why should work be paid when the opportunity to do something meaningful is a rarity?

    Bullshit. History has demonstrated that humans will increase their consumption and their numbers to just past the society's ability to support them. That is, if you don't breed, consume more; if you don't consume more, just breed more.

    ...are not self-propagating. Artificial society.

    Maybe if they mastered cloning...

    Consider the FLDS (Colorado City/Hilldale). Breed like rabbits.

    Maybe there is a sweet spot, a niche of sustainability where we can survive.

    It is worth trying.

    If we're going to do that, then we're going to have to overcome a lot of influences.

    The corporate world would like us to consume as much as possible of their stuff. Buy a new car every two years, purchase appliances that fail after five, buy all sorts of gizmos that contribute little to the quality of life.

    We'd probably be better off taxing the populace to purchase junk and then burning it all.

    Wait--isn't that what the military is for?

    Maybe if we tone down the capitalism a little bit and nudge the socialism lever a bit... Maybe... It's certainly within our reach...
