Many rich folk find many productive outlets for their skills and interests. Many 'hobbyists' create interesting and useful output. Many artists and performers have their creative output stymied by economic duress. And many will be slackers in the eyes of some, but enjoy a happy life. Could be worse.
Hence the need for a new economic philosophy
You , like many, misunderstand the long term implications of increased productivity over time. Eventually most of the GNP (or GWP - gross world product) will be created through automated systems. This will require a substantial rethinking of what constitutes a life's work, as working to earn a living will become obsolete. Everyone will be entitled to a high (by today's standards) standard of living, and freed to pursue whatever endeavors - productive or not - that they so choose.
There will no doubt still be inequalities, but it will be the difference between the have's and the have more's. Most economic philosophies are based on limited resource allocations, whether it is capitalism, socialism, Marxism, free markets, feudal fiefdoms, or whatever. New models will be needed.

I still have trouble with 1+1=10
I have a mechanical calculator that is extremely reliable, so long as you oil it.
I had five kids, and now you tell me I can't count on them? Dammit!
Why don't we make the hours from 9 am to 5 pm 40 minutes long, and we can have more time at both ends of the day!

For example, when I am hard at work, and my wife thinks I am goofing off...
Ahh! This takes me back. I remember a time around 1954 when bumpers were bumpers, and my dad and uncle were driving from Providence to Pittsburgh, playing bumper cars all the way. Fortunately this was before seat belts so we kids could climb up on the back window ledge for a good look.
I would assert that the population of terrible, drunk/drug addled drivers on the road today are far more dangerous that the odd software error we will see. Especially since each failure of automation will result in improvements over time.
That seems perfectly reasonable, but since I don't know you perhaps you could give my friend here a wad of cash as earnest money just so I know I can trust you.
Are telling me the chat I got about winning the Nigerian Lottery might have been meant for someone else?
