That's the first time I've heard of an egalitarian economy referred to as the end of the world. I didn't realize that living to live instead of work was such a horrible thing. Although if you mean the end of society in it's current form (and not actually the end of the world), then I would say that history repeatedly disputes your nonsense. Society has continually changed in dramatic ways when new technologies have come about. The economy has followed because it is just a sociological reaction to the current state of the world.
I really you hope you don't think automation is not going to displace labor without some serious government intervention (which by the way the US gov has generally demonstrated support for automating tasks). I think you're just spitting hyperbole and know it (read: a troll).
Here's a question I ask myself every time I try to comprehend how much a technology can change the way our society trades: How long has the personal automobile been ubiquitous and how was (insert some specific task) accomplished before?
While fishing last weekend I saw an old bridge and asked my buddy, "Do you ever think about what it must've been like to build that?" He responded, "I try not to think about how hard it must've been to be a slave." It totally blew my mind. I was thinking about how the hell they got the rocks there and manually mixed and poured so much concrete. I hadn't even considered that bridge was most likely built by a group of slaves as it was the most economically feasible way to construct the bridge during that time period. Anyhow he, being a history major, continued to detail for me how a group of slaves and a whip cracker or two likely moved the rocks from a nearby quarry and mixed up the concrete from mostly local ingredients. This of course led to a conversation about Freemansville and colonization, which is kind of drawing some parallels to our current situation.
Anyhow, before you get anymore foot in mouth disease I'd highly recommend looking at US history during the Civil War and the Reconstruction Era. It's a pretty good pattern for what to expect if we had such a huge abundance of unskilled labor demanding higher wages than what's offered.
