That's a great plan if you have wealth and use it to buy the bots and other resources required to make stuff or do stuff that you can use yourself or sell to others.

A lot of people don't have that wealth. I don't see an easy way for them to convince those who do have wealth to share it (especially given the rise of the Tea-Party which is based on people wanting to keep what they've earned).

In practice, failures in system development, like unemployment in Russia, happens a lot despite official propaganda to the contrary. -- Paul Licker
