10 years? 50 years? Never?

Economic activity is bad for the environment - so much of it is unnecessary (and unpleasant) already (eg. aggressive sales in all industries). I look forward to the day when people can be unemployed without stigma. A post scarcity economy (barring things like yachts and gold plated lamas) already exists in most developed economies - isn't it time to just give all citizens a guaranteed income, free from stigma? I know the green party in the UK have that in their manifesto but they're only a minor player in the UK political scene - any calls from major parties to put an end to unemployment stigma?
