Folks, I don't have much more to say on the subject, except look around you. People gravitate towards hedonism. Hedonsim is the natural eventual outcome of all human governmental and/or economic systems-- It's the goal: A system where everyone is free to be what they want to be, unfettered by such trivial things as lack of resources... Ask yourselves, seriously, in the real world. If a child was presented with all he wanted, what would he do? He'd want to kill his parents, of course, those mean old people who wish to place restrictions on his behavior... But it doesn't matter. Resources and energy are in infinite supply. The kid can ignore all restrictions placed on his behavior. If he wants to disappear into the holosim, who are YOU to question his decision? So in a world where pure unfettered hedonism is possible, what would happen? I rest my case.
