Then comes this problem, who will ineirht the Earth? The first emmortals (death escapers, as true immortality would imply invulnerability to fatal accidents) will tend to preserve and enhance even further their grip on human affairs control, denying their share of the pie to younger generations. This has been brilliantly theorized by SF authors like Stableford (emmortality cycle) or Sterling (Holly fire). In the long run the younger people will have to be bold enough to conquer an other Lebensraum , e.g. leaving Earth.

  2. You sound like a young man, Bob Vasquez. Yes, it’s going to be one long hard slog through the next two deadecs to get to the singularity. There will be a great social crisis from the mass unemployment caused by cheap robots. Unemployment benefits can’t be allowed to run out after 26 weeks. When a robot takes a job, that job is gone forever. These robots will have to start paying the unemployment taxes that the workers used to pay. The owners of the robots will fight this tooth and nail, but it is the only way to get society through the difficult times to come. The robots will have to support the people they put out of work or there will be vast mobs of homeless unemployed people crowding the streets. The only things that will keep them from burning the mansions of the 1% will be a negative income tax and public housing and medicaid and foodstamps. Without a social safety net, society will crumble and humanity will enter a new dark age. That will be the end of all our great hopes for the singularity.
