"A world without poverty"

What fucking planet are they on? Whilst capitalism is still the driver of most economies, there will always be poverty - especially as automation becomes the norm. Entry level jobs will reduce and only those with specialist skills will be able to find employement.

Poverty is on the increase.

Think about all the things that have changed in the last 50 years. No more rotary phones, no more shared phones. Who needs a paper encyclopedia anymore with unprecidented access to information. Way fewer people wear watches. You don't need paper maps anymore. You can have groceries delivered within 2 hours and virtually anything else within 2 days. And so on.

That last one is extremely delusional.

I prefer to think of it as optimistic. That's something every generation thinks they can solve with whirled peas...

@shockwaverider Oh, it's optimistic alright! World peace has a much better chance than the eradication of poverty under our current structure as some countries find peace for long periods of time while every country has poverty problems.
