We have the technology because of lots of intense competition on a lot of levels over many millennia leading up to driven, highly intelligent people in settings that gave them incentives to overachieve. Now that the technology exists, it might be easy to fantasize about utopias, but remove the tensions that lead to creativity and you don't have a lot of hope of the species improving.
