But I haven't thought deep enough and long enough on this particular issue to have any solid answers, just opinions for now.

    We are not exactly sure what kind of future world we will be moving towards. Anything goes for now. So it is hard to predict or even speculate. An asteroid could hit the earth, or a solar flare who knows what and it could change everything over night. But we should work it out though.

    Another thing that could help is ending corporate welfare. There are certain things that could take some burden off of the system as well. Like Green energy co-op's that supply neighborhoods with energy at a lower rate. There are also neighborhood green houses or gardening. This would provide at least a portion of peoples food. If everyone worked together perhaps we could take a huge burden off of the system. It would require all of us to do our part, the corporations, and the people. We would all have to stop taking. If only the truly needy were helped and our money was not being spent on war, and people worked together as a society to improve things then maybe we could get somewhere. But right now it is a take, take world with no end in sight.
    End corporate taxes. That way government (Federal, state, and local) can't give them "corporate welfare." And corporate taxes get paid by corporate customers (us) anyway.

    I, and I think some others, associate it with general wealth and prosperity. Living in poverty you tend to rely more on the labor of many hands--your children--to get by. Prosperity brings leisure. As the rate of poverty continues to diminish, under liberal democracy and economic liberalism, so too does the need to reproduce diminish. --Very broad generalizations of course.
