So maybe these old timers can #1 retire at appropriate age 55-60, #2 train next generation better

Remember that moon landing 52 years ago? It was accomplished using slide rules! We landed men on the moon and brought them safely back to earth. Now we have supercomputers running a billions of cycles per second, crunching 64- and 128-bit numbers at speeds no one dreamed of back then, quantum computers starting to be realized that are even faster, and we can't seem to get out of orbit!
Sooner or later on of these two competing ideologies are gonna have to be laid aside or we are gonna be drowning in products the computers are spitting out at top speed that no one can afford to buy because there is no hard work to be found.
I'm not saying that people themselves have not changed as in human psychology and how we think. It's the nature of society around us that changes, and the material world that changes. Humans create things to ease the burden of physical labor on our bodies and other things such as living longer, and pleasuring out minds.
Computers are supposed to be making our lives much easier, aren't they? The idea is that they work hard, so we don't have to, isnt it?
