Be very careful what you wish for......
Lest there be any misunderstanding: It is capitalism that opened the gates to the Land of Plenty, but capitalism alone cannot sustain it. Progress has become synonymous with economic prosperity, but the twenty-first century will challenge us to find other ways of boosting out quality of life.

True progress begins with something no knowledge economy can produce: wisdom about what it means to live well.
If anything, kids today are struggling under the burden of too much pampering.
-Rutger Bregman, being a few excerpts from his Utopia For Realists: How We Can Build The Ideal World
