AI is taking over, is there life after work?

The quote below from the author sums up my own thinking on this important question:

It isn’t people who are becoming obsolete, it is work. The notion that people will become obsolete is a complete and utter absurdity, we have always been greater than being mere workers, but what should be self evident, is being wilfully ignored. Are we really willing to allow life to remain subservient to a work and money model that is becoming obsolete? How narrow is our vision and who is dominating this discourse (or lack of) over the value of our lives, because it certainly isn’t you and me. Speaking personally, it’s an insult to my intelligence, my creativity, my dreams, hopes and desires, and above all, to my life and being“.

Just look at the brutality of the DWP, incentivising people into work by depriving them of the means of survival. Jacob Rees-Mogg, current pretender to the Conservative throne, claimed food banks showed ‘a “rather uplifting” picture of a compassionate country’. Our compassion, but not his.
