I suspect all of this discussion will eventually be relegated to a discussion of whether the future of mankind can survive under current economic models. The fundamental tacit assumption of capitalism has been there are infinite resources. What was not foreseen is the rapid automation of the workforce without a commensurate increase in replacement jobs.

The reader can devise their own arguments on resources, but the reality is we live in a finite space. One could argue there are or will be replacement jobs displaced from automation, but I ask based on the surety AI will eventually automate the automation.

The question will become which economic system will guarantee the survival of mankind and the ancillary question is anyone interested in the survival of mankind?
