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?

I think the perennial demise of wealth re-distribution is the corruptibility of those we put in charge of the redistribution.

'Ah', you say, 'put me in charge.' Amen to that! Can I get an 'Amen'? No? No takers?
