That's about all it could be, the teflon 'boden' tube needs to be cut square and forced down into the 'hotend'. The plastic tube clamp is notorious for failing to grip the tube securely but they are cheap and you can even 3D print a simple PLA circlip to enhance its grip for peace of mind.

I've done a fair amount of 3D printing without any of these problems but I'm not using any abrasive or high-temp filaments so far either.

What about the mass unemployment that will also materialize with the introduction of such technologies?

Not to worry. 3D printing technology can be used to quickly construct prisons housing and shackles supplies for workers displaced by new technology.

Everything's going to be just fine!

Or just construct drones and nano viruses to hunt them down and kill them.

"They" the privileged few that remain in power would hardly waste resources and space in the construction of gaols and shackles when they don't require a slave workforce any longer now would they?

Thing is, if it's done right, everything could indeed be a whole lot better, don't know about just fine all the same.

We are apt to still find something to squabble over and kill one another, like whatever amounts to 3d printing material for instance.
