That human beings can be freed to do more interesting things with their time is not a bad thing, but we need to get rid of the idea that personal validation can only come from our paid work. Perhaps we could embrace being able to work in various projects at once or reinvent ourselves every decade rather than toil at the same job we hate for 40 years.
Many capitalists are against this of course because they say it kills motivation and is the equivalent to a handout except that they themselves have been feeding into the mantra of “faster and cheaper is better” which has reduced the labor options for these people. The extreme case scenario would be the disappearance of all manual labor and have large swaths of the population unable to feed or clothe themselves.
Hence, to take a purely capitalistic stance on this would virtually ensure massive social erosion on a scale humanity has never seen before. You either allow a segment of the population some dignified work or you give them money to live.
