So basically you want a communist utopia. Complete with eugenics and a permanent underclass? Interesting.


If you reduce the population over time, eventually everyone can live in high class off of investments from the automated labor.

what never seems to be addressed is personal accountability.
there is no situation where you can not work your way to a comfortable life. not everyone will be millionaires. i know i will never be one. but i can work, save, and through fiscal conservative planning have a nice life.

giving money to people is not a reasonable answer.


It depends on your age and expected lifespan. A few decades of compound growth in the stock market and you get 30-40x multiplication of initial investment, even quite a minor investment becomes a significant fortune given time.
