    Yeah, robo-waiters, and cooks too. Robots inventing Robots inventing anything you can imagine. All that jazz. Won't it be glorious?
    I gotta idea! Lets try to make people dispensible since they are at the root of all problems.

    Put everybody out of work.

    Then we can play Matrix. Well. A few of us, at least.

    Nothing would change in that regard, you know. By your logic, people are already dispensable.

    I often think our Sci-Fi writers are our New World prophets.

    Brave New World, anyone?

    I agree, I do believe it will have to be based on human nature. It can't work any other way. I would just want to have it based on something else than greed. Greed is part of the bad things in human nature. It could as well be based on something positive.

    Well, if you base something on behavior, you don't get to pick and choose which tendencies to allow. The system wouldn't get off the ground.

    Althought free markets, as I understand the them, are not based on greed, they do cope with greed very well. However, even in a very altruistic society, free markets would be the way to go.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    I meant this current system. It is based on human nature and the regulation is there to limit the bad effects of the human nature.

    So, where does the grow grow grow mentality come from if not greed? Why is it never enough?
