Yes, this to a very large degree.
The word is all over the idea that everyne has to work 40 hours a week for 40 years of their life. Can't just get something for nothing.
The reality is, we are screaming headlong into an automated economy. There really is very little that we can't have done by robots. The jobs that require human intervention? Hell, everyone works some kind of job from say, age 20 to 30, maybe 30 hours a week.
The real issue that comes up is that we have been bread for years to be consumers and it makes us greedy. A society where you get what you need and some of what you want with today's populace would be a train wreck of hoarding and excess "because I can" mentality. It really only works if the mass opinion is "because I need it to live" couple with "this is nice but I don't need all of it.
Our current system is unsaistainable as the rest of the world approaches first world.
