do any of these futurists think ?
so no-one considers effort expended to create hardware for VR hallucinations real work ? Someone has to make the machines that make the machines, not to mention steel, concrete and fix borked traffic control hardware. Then minor issues like food. You know, the stuff that isn't merkin corn syrup. So far, I only heard a future of intrusive surveillance, deskilled menial casual work, and a ruling non-elite in echo chambers. In these nightmare scenarios, the only up is to be a dope dealer big shot supplying the latest Bolivian marching powder to the 1%s brats.
