    I personally don't think people will abandon the concept of ownership, but I do think we will become a post scarcity society where everyone has all they need.Many science fiction books try to cover this topic, my favorite is Iain M Banks Culture series which is where Spacex got it's drone ship names (of course I still love you and just read the instructions) as well as his concept for the Neural Link brain-computer interface device the neurallace.I think the most important core principal to build in...

  • WildWeeBear (Mar 16, 2019)

    Nobody's arguing that ownership will be abandoned - what's being said is that the basic needs for human life will become demonetised due to technological advancement creating a complete abundance of resources.

  • The Devil's Advocate (Mar 10, 2019)

    How will you get rid of greed

  • Oz Ramos (Dec 10, 2017)

    7:00 Chris Anderson to Elon Musk on the efficiency of the Gigafactory:Anderson: "I mean, is that sped up or...?"Musk: "That's the slowed down version."

  • irishguy13 (6 days ago)

    That was a slowed down version because they just couldn't figure out how to film it in a way that conveys the true speed? Can you say charlatan?

  • Darion D'Anjou (Dec 16, 2017)

    that question was clearly a pre setup softball pitch. but it was still cool!

  • Inigo (Mar 26, 2018)

    I think it's kinda messed up that people think that your job is the most important thing in your live. What about hobbies? You know.. Doing the thing you *really* love! Everyday. Without the need to worry about money. that to me sounds like paradise.

  • Nathan Griffioen (Feb 27, 2019)

    +Owain I work at a bank. It sounds super boring and I know that a lot of people have negative perceptions of banks but being in the bank has shown me that not all are massive corporations trying to steal money. I enjoy my job so much because I am privileged enough to be able to hear peoples' dreams, needs and struggles and I get the chance to advise them and guide them towards it. It can be difficult but It is very rewarding.

  • bholdwick (Feb 19, 2019)

    inigo is a millennial!

  • Finn K (Mar 6, 2018)

    And just to be clear, the PROBLEM IS GREED, not capitalism. Soviet Communism? Failed because the ones at the top took too much money💰 for themselves. Abundance? Will fail because it will likely favor the rich, not the poor.AS LONG AS WE HAVE GREED, WE WILL FAIL TO BE ETHICAL/SUSTAINABLEPOWER IS NOTHING WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY

  • Lingo lu (Feb 22, 2019)

    True, we could prob make a sustaniable futuristic town but greed

  • YorkshireD (Jun 9, 2018)

    The elite will never agree to demonetisation. demonetisation equals the deletion of classes.

  • Tanya Peoples (3 days ago)

    YorkshireD respect your elders

  • Joseph Chomba (Mar 15, 2019)

    YorkshireD you right, history always repeats itself

  • Alex (Jun 13, 2018)

    The majority of People hates their job. Something you hate shouldn't be the thing you identify through. And it is just a tragedy that we are forced to spend the majority of our time doing something we hate.

  • Chuffpup (Dec 11, 2017)

    I'm 56 years old, and in the 70s I was told at school that by the year 2000 no one would need to work. Everyone would have all they needed for life, and we would be flying around in little bubble cars. I'm serious. We really believed this bullshit, and the "best minds" of the time were adamant that the 21st century was going to be a time of plenty, and the biggest problem would be how to spend your leisure time. What happened? It came true for a tiny minority, but for most people things got w...

  • The Devil's Advocate (Mar 10, 2019)

    There are too many people

  • Radioactive Gamer (Mar 1, 2019)

    LOL Just like how the 80's believed we'd have flying cars by now. lmao

  • ALBERT EINSTEIN (Dec 27, 2018)

    "That's you're woman" stuck out amongst all that futuristic information. Lol.

  • [hyrizen] (Dec 6, 2018)

    If it were even possible to create a utopia, there will be people that will burn it to the ground just to see what would happen

    The energy issue needs to be solved, I feel something like LFTR, a type of nuclear reactor.
