UBI is inevitable. I just wonder if we'll be less innovative when there's no necessity to work? I know I'd spend much of my time tinkering and learning, so I'd probably be more creative, but most people aren't so inquisitive. Kids these days are happy to spend all day every day playing Call of Duty.

The Star Trek vision is that lack of want would free us to explore like never before. I'm sure that would be true for some, but I fear Wall-e is more likely for the majority.
