    In the list, you wrote space tourism in the disappearing section. I was confused so I had to check it in the picture

    If machines do take many of our jobs, as is often claimed, I see the welfare state growing if anything, not declining.

    How could a welfare state grow if money becomes abolished ? With enough renewable resources for everyone on this planet not only would “welfare” become extinct, but other countires would become self sustaining. Giving people the freedom to do as they want, furthering themselves in a new world giving opportunity to those who were shackled by our monetary system working more than half their life too accomplish nothing but slaving away too resolve a debt that from the very begining was/is irresovable, get ready in the next 10-20 years it WILL fail. All everyone has ever known even as children that at some point in your life you will have to work, but not working on furthering yourself as a human being. You work too survive, you work as a slave unknowingly lining the industry’s pockets with a note that has ABSOLUTELY NO MEANING MONEY HAS NOT PUSHED US FORWARD TOO BECOMING MORE CIVILAZED, IT HAS NOT BROUGHT UNITY AMONG PEOPLE. MONEY ITSELF IS WAR.
