I've thought a lot about this. Consider a future with androids and computers doing all of the menial work we currently do. Is this a paradise or a hell? In one scenario, all of this automation is owned by private industry and concentrates more and more money into fewer hands. It would eclipse today's wealth inequality, and people would be under the control of the few, but have lots of free time. That would probably mean rebellion if the few couldn't keep them happy and busy.
It seems that the solution to this would be communal ownership of the androids and machinery of industry. The profits from such automation would go to fund government programs and perhaps at some point could eliminate taxes. Or the goods could be priced at cost, meaning cheap living expenses. People would be free to pursue arts, music, science, research, any sort of thing they're interested in. That's the ideal, at least. We're notoriously good at screwing things up.
