I agree that we are developing the technical capacities to deliver abundance, but there are no systemic incentives to do so. Money is the major barrier to delivery.
Money does not value abundance.
Money is a function of both supply and demand parameters – as soon as supply exceeds demand monetary value drops to zero.
If you find that hard to think of, then consider oxygen – it is vital to each and every one of us, yet we all have what we want, and the monetary value of it is zero.
As long as we as a society remain enslaved by the myth of money, there will be a strong disincentive to ever deliver the post scarcity society which is undoubtedly possible, and undoubtedly desired by most in society – because there is no money to be made from it.
