Oh, I do understand the virtue of real work. I teach it where I can. Automation has it's place. It's when the populace starts to rely on it and believes that a life of leisure = fulfillment is where a problem arrises. They will continue to spend and play and buy toys and think this is how you form happiness. All the while sinking into a depression because they are broke and surrounded by stuff they have to maintain.
This is a symptom of a privileged society. Each generation progressively has less struggle due to their parents having more comforts and conveniences. Now every small little speed bump in their lives is a crisis and the next thing you know..."we all need to band together to make Starbucks....XYZ!!!!".
Anyway. Rant off to the side there. I'm hopeful that my light can be seen and appreciated by those who want to understand that the cutting corners only leaves you with one more to round that you started. Hopefully the cheats and lazy will eventually get rooted out.
