In a previous blog, I discussed how the increasing automation of jobs and services will lead to a loss of the desire and design to be productive as humans, created in the image of God. Guardian has an article out that speaks to this, but how it will lead to two ultimate ends: the elusive utopia I spoke of in the previous blog (and showed how it really won’t be that at all), or a new form of serfdom.
