Friend Neil directs our attention to this great-looking forthcoming documentary, The Future of Work and Death.
I can hardly wait. Quick, someone throw some money at their kickstarter.
I love that work and death are placed together as discussion topics: the two great so-called inevitables.
This potential film is very much part of our Utopian conversation about what’ll happen when the machines more properly take over and the idea of the human as functionary is more widely accepted as an appalling waste.
Recall this Buckminster Fuller quote:
We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery.
