I think he means telecommuniting and such.What kind of real work will be done on the internet? Shitty youtube videos and art?
I think he and his other co-bloggers are big proponents of the "Green New Deal", as proposed by Kiwi Farm's favorite Congresscritter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.literally not feasible with current technology. large scale energy storage (which is mandatory when using solar and wind power) is way too expensive and inefficient for this to be viable.
i obviously don't know if this will change by 2050 or not, but neither does the author, and basing your policy recommendations on blind "tech will fix it" optimism is exceptional.
Ha ha, no seriously, thats's adorable.
At the cost of sounding no different than those people who use Harry Potter and [Current Year] media to describe everything, it reminds me of that scene from the first Matrix movie where Smith talks about humans wholesale rejecting the first version of the Matrix that was "perfect" because they innately knew something was not right. Any "utopia" especially a socialist one would have the same outcome.
There are people in positions of power with really shitty values who would likely prevent any post-scarcity utopia from coming to be. To them, there's just too much money and power to be had in keeping the world the shitty way it is to give it up.There are only two real ways a utopia could happen on Earth.
Utopia is the lifeblood for socialism and communism. Without it no one would ever want to implement such a stupid idea. But to the actual marks that believe this 100 percent, utopia justifies the means.
Who the fuck cares how many people die? Utopia is worth it.
When the British communist historian Eric Hobsbawm was asked if Soviet communism had lived up to its promise of a radiant tomorrow, would the loss of fifteen, twenty million people been justifiable, he replied at once, ‘Yes’.
As I wrote in the Star Trek thread, Earth Utopia is built on colonies sending them the raw materials to make the replicators and shuttles work. Dilithium doesn't mine itself. I've never seen The Expanse, but from what I hear, it's coming from the same viewpoint.So they want a Star trek style economy and government structure. I mean that's cool and all but even in fake Star trek land that didn't really happen until they figured out a nearly unlimited source of energy and efficient matter to energy conversion.
You notice what you don't see in fake Star trek Utopia? Solar panels and wind farms.
Oops I meant energy to matter.
