In the presumed post-scarcity world, we get the lifestyle without working, without any income. In the extreme, the only possibility for compensation for residual jobs is in some form of an investment. From our modern perspective where income is tied to consumption, income will not be a benefit from working. The future will be a post-income world.
Despite abundant wealth to support generous welfare benefits, we are fracturing into contentious groups that are turning against each other with increasing malevolence even despite individual’s assertions of conflict avoidance. It is inevitable that humans will recognize communities based on shared traits. The loss of a shared trait of an opportunity for paid work will be replaced with more specialized traits that separate different populations by cultural or familial identities.
