This is an amazing thought. Greed keeps us from this ideal. Can you imagine the art that would happen if artists weren't concerned about where their next meal would come from or how they will provide for a family? I have a dream of a place where artists can work completely unshackled by thoughts of survival and focus singularly on their art. I want to live there.
Love Bucky. This is what I call "the Star Trek future". If we (as humans) survive long enough without killing ourselves, we will eventually reach the point where we CAN provide any one who wants it with the necessities of life, with no strings attached. Pessimists believe this will make slaves of us all. Optimists believe this will free us to follow our dreams. The reality is probably (us usual) somewhere in between.
