I'm the Anon Coward in the grandparent post.
"I'm Libertarian at heart, but I don't see how capitalism is going to solve this problem."
I don't think it will, that's what I'm saying. Capitalism is incompatible with the abundance and efficiency that high technology can bring.
"I'm too optimistic in my hope that idle people would do good with their spare time."
I don't think so.
"Without any structure, I bet a huge portion of our population checks out, going to a perpetual drug induced stupor."
Based on what?
