Are you describing our current situation, or what you perceive as what the op proposes?
The system doesn't allow for growth.
The system means giving over every aspect of human life to a system that you have to hope will be a benign dictatorship.
It removes reward for innovation, and indeed discourages it as being disruptive to the system.
It presumes that everyone would be happy in this system, which would make anyone who is not an enemy.
It is based on conformity of thought, so variation from it would be traitorous.
It presumes work is free.
It would lead to a system of expansionism as the needed extra resources must be provided from outside this system to float the vast numbers of the
lazy - and yes, they are lazy.
It requires a controlled monoculture.
Currently, we have a system controlled by corporate, conformist bureaucrats who pretend to work.
Everything you describe here accurately reflects the corporate environment.
Work is a necessary function of energy production, even in an agrarian system. Presuming that food comes without work is not just selfish, but
literally contrary to physics. Automation would mean even worse mono agriculture, or to go the other way requires work. Which then removes the entire
basis of your system.
Um, the Op never said people shouldn't work. The op points out how screwed up this system is where we are all expected to get JOBs. I discovered
long ago that when I work for myself, I earn a great deal more than I get from the corporate system.
The problem is that the whole investor driven corporate controlled society has ended property ownership, and forced everybody into life long debt,
paying into the corporate banking debt creating machine.
If you want a decent paying job you have to go to college for four years and start you life off deeply in debt. It is a scam. These schools don't
educate young people, they condition them to be life long slaves, and original thought is not encourage, but in fact discouraged.
By the way, most people I know are not lazy.
