More detail...
IF.. you were in such a stadium and there was only one comodity (hot dogs) you would have a different view of centralized delivery depending on whether you though there were more than enough dogs vs. way too few.

In the case that you thought there were not enough supply, you would view centralized delivery as a control thing. In other words, your fears of who decides who gets one would be justified. Because obviously, if there aren't enough, a centralized delivery system would mean that one person ultimately held the choices. This is how people view our society today. (i.e. Not enough to go around and TPTB making the call of who gets what.) I'm saying that "the delivery method" takes the rap for the decision because it's centrally controlled.

In the case that you thought there were more dogs than all the people could want, you wouldn't care who got how many. Your concerns would boil down to how fast you could get yours. Gone would be any fear of some PTB deciding for you if you got one. In this case, the delivery system (those centrally controlled quadcopter drones) couldn't be fast enough or intelligent / smart / centralized / master controlled enough.

In the paradigm that the Zeitgeist Movement operated under, there is way more than enough of everything to go around as long as we stop all the waste. But here's the conundrum. It's the monetary system of competition and ownership that causes the waste. (their premise) So, their end goal is to avoid that waste so we can live in abundance and all the problems (incentive for oppression and living under the fear of it) that stem from scarcity (not enough dogs) will go away.

To be fair, they do have a point. It's actually very easy to track down much of today's waste. Where does that lead back to? To the failings of the capitalistic system.

I personally contend that it would be easy to remove those failings while leaving capitalism in place and the result would be less problems and more abundance and wealth per person.

Did that clear anything up or make it muddier? ;)
