Then you

disregard the will of the majority, power of ideas and blindly believe in destiny, not unlike Marxists believed in historical dialectics. I, on the other hand, can envision the earth where technological productivity is enough to provide a single room, old computer, basic food and gay bathhouse at the block. Since economic stagnation was a norm before 1800's, I wonder why the same cannot continue further, with technology slowly advancing by few men of ability. There is no indication that progress is a constant force or the main point of natural evalution.
