It’s time for everyone to re-read Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut.

Aside from that, I think it’s very important to alter the importance of “jobs” in this world and in our lives. Just look around here. There is talent and art flowing like a river through this place and none of that talent is valued in the same way a “job” is valued. It’s true that jobs give meaning and purpose to people and there is value in that, but jobs are not the be all and end all in life. If automation opens a world for us to each explore one’s creative abilities or to do absolutely nothing at all (if that’s what you get off on) then so be it. Like anything else, we just need balance.
