As world population grows and machines already do most of the hard work, so we don't have to enslave each other or work our butt off on the field plowing and reaping, I come to ask more frequently what the future structure of society would be. Overproduction has become a major issue both in terms of consuming natural resources and stalled market.
Freedom lovers state that "one have the right to ones labor and the products of that labor" in contrast with slavery where they belong to the master. Does that work in over-productive economy or it just applies for the self sufficient 19 century farmer type of man? Are we moving towards some kind of plan economy, some kind of socialism, as labor becomes more and more effective and manual-free?
Is socialism inevitable within the next 100 years?
