I loved that book. I also agreed with it's suggestions. We are now, though, in a world that is spending over half it's economical gains to support those who refuse or are unable to take care of themselves.

As robots keep replacing human workers in manufacturing and now retail and food servicing, fears have arisen that artificial general intelligence (AGI) machines will  threaten mankind when "intelligence escapes the constraints of biology" and machines can design and create their own offspring.

If that idea sounds far-fetched, then please consider Cambridge boffins fear 'Pandora's Unboxing' and RISE of the MACHINES.
