Plus, I don't care about my wealth over the next couple of centuries.. just the next couple of decades
I see, so you basically glazed over the entire article and the context of this entire thread that I started and saw an opportunity to score a political point. "Next couple of decades" does not equate as "immortality" so. . . I guess you can just move along on your own merry way then?
steal my money
Why are you assuming that you have any money to steal in this scenario? Do you honestly believe that there is a job that exists that cannot be automated within the next couple of centuries? When it is YOU receiving a basic income, will you have "earned it" at that point?
I am trying to determine whether you are an overzealous workaholic puritan or just out of touch with technological progress.
