    I kind of resonate with Doug Stanhope, who said something like "Why are politicians promising 100% employment? I would run on 0% employment!" (to paraphrase).

    Seriously, why push for convenience, labor-saving devices, automated calculating, etc, etc, if it doe not improve our standard of living?

    If we were to reap the benefits of all the labors of our ancestors, rather than 1%ers, we could all live lives of artistic introspection, with a minimum of tedium, meaningful lives dedicated to the pusuit of the muses Science, Art, Music...

    ...and XBOX...

    If you ask me, that's the future: a billion slackers burning fatties and playing XBOX and World of Warcraft.

    In fact, in some places, one might claim that the future is here now!
