@Macdoc Have you ever worked such job? Rhetorical. Automation frees people for menial and mundane tasks, literally.

Sure, there are questions like: what to do with the people who make living doing such tasks? where do they get income from? who is gonna pay for it? ... but conceptually, freeing oneself from such labor opens up many possibilities like using the brain for creativity, critical thinking or education and using energy for stuff like beekeeping or getting involved in communities or sharing own wisdom and experiences with others. Besides "mirror neurons" are far from being mechanized as far as I know.

It is the way to go. Automation allows humans to realize their potential. The only question is how we handle it.
