If work can be automated, it should. The only remaining problem is distribution of goods. And no, this is not "communism", as corporations are still privately owned.

You didn't even read my comment. Don't you know what a fucking comment is? Don't you know what fucking reading means? Fucking idiot. A huge pdf does not equal a proper response. If a huge pdf does actually equal a proper argument, I will cite a 1000 page pdf and until you read it, I will win the debate.
