When the U.S. primary export was industrial goods, there was work available in industry.

Later we innovated in electronics, and exported electronics. EEs were in the catbird seat.

Later still, we led in software. We exported software. We worked on software.

Now, we just export $100 bills. The need to actually do work is much diminished.

The OP's comments on the "social contract" refer to his desire for people with guns to take from my science projects and from the people I support, and give to his science projects, and the people he supports. Calling it "the social contract that cultivates science for the common good" is despicable propaganda. It's funny how
"the common good" always involves hiring thugs to threaten other people so that you get your way.

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
