7. It's a wonderfull thing... with a right set of values
It might be a way out of the current unsustainable economic model of compulsory growth.

Less compulsory consumption would be a wonderfull thing. Stuff and more stuff don't make people happy, it just creates yearn for more and more instant gratification and makes people seriously unhappy. Besides, there's the wasting limited natural resources, polluting and destroying our planet with our consumerist way of life... and most people still living in absolute poverty and many dying of hunger.

Less compulsory work would be a wonderfull thing, naturally work and income should be spread somewhat equally, everybody quaranteed living income and work-a-holics allowed to work and earn more. Seriously, we could have much better life working (in wage slavery) half the time we do now.
