While many retain much truth, we have actually gone past the need for labour.
We have the ability to automate any process.
We can capture the skill of people in automated processes that use sunlight as the energy source to deliver universal abundance of all of the essentials of life.
There is no need for an exchange based (market based) system of organising our society – where the vast majority of humanity miss out on what is possible.
Once we automate systems, they can easily be replicated.
Our economic and political systems are a holdover from past times when labour really was necessary, and most goods and services really were scarce. Now the only thing maintaining scarcity is out economic system itself.
If we choose to think beyond scarcity, beyond markets, beyond money; we can deliver abundance and security to all.
Sure we need respect for life, and for liberty, and those things need to be universals; not restricted to any subset of sapient life.
