Default Re: A "Utopian" future -- for real??

Geothermal isn't a test project any longer. OIT in Klamath Falls, OR has been using it for quite some time (several years) to power their residence halls. In fact, OIT is now building new residence halls and creating classroom studies and projects in geothermal energy. That's only one example I could quote.

It may or may not be utopian but it is happening now. Science fiction notwithstanding, a lot of things that were 'futuristic' are now reality.

As for the 'no work' thing...we're already enroute to that pipe dream. Robots will, eventually, do many of the 'dirty/dangerous tasks' that people now do. The real challenge will be to adapt to the changing times...and they're coming fast.

The sit on their butts and lazy folks will fall off the edges of society as society pushes ahead with ever-increasing technological changes. One either keeps up or gets shoved aside. That has been shown time and time again in this old world.

Initially the hordes of folks that are needed when technology is in it's infancy won't be needed as tech advances. The real test of human ingenuity will come when we have to provide meaningful activity for the masses. Not an easy task and it will sort out folks into the haves and have nots even more than we see today in the world.

The one certainty in life, other than death (and that isn't so certain either these days), is change. Labels are just that...and just as useless ultimately.
