An interesting editorial about the problem of superfluous people. You may be secure now, but at some point some computer program or robot will probably be able to do your job at a fraction of the cost of maintaining your current lifestyle. Our economic system will need to adjust to this. It seems to me that if machines can do your job, that should be a good thing rather than a bad thing. You should be able to pursue other interests. But that's not how our system works.
