@Michael Johnson,
If they're shite quality and make as well as being manufactured using the labor of preteen (and younger kids) which is still a high probability given certain countries where these products are manufactured and their blatant United Nations labor and child rights violations?

A lot of that crap we see sold in Walmart and seen in infomercials? There are plenty of downsides.

Not failing to mention that when they break? You can only throw them away as they are neither fixable nor recyclable.

@tsarstepan,
MY mind takes me to the chain saw, a very useful tool in proper hands. Yet there is one downside.

I go to the extreme.

If we had AI robots who could carry out any labor no matter how intricate it would do wonders for humanity. No one would have to work at all. It would mean free time to do as you wish. Take up hobbies, pursue art, entertainment, ect.

The only problem is if this is ethical to enslave intelligent robots to do all our work for us while we sit back and enjoy life.

I think it would be great. No need for money because money is an exchange of labor. No need for labor means everyone can have what they need.

Resources are the only concern. Is there enough to maintain our existence in such a world? Perhaps having children would be limited to one per couple regardless of multiple marriages. If you already have a child it would be punishable to have a second even if new spouse was childless.
