    it depends what you mean by 'work'

    so i personally would have no problem with society sharing the work around so that we could all work less. I have a lot of things i'd like to do with my spare time. i wouldn't be idle and most people aren't. Most people have interests that they pursue even though no one pays them to do it

    But what I'm speaking about is a world in which artificial intelligence controls everything through a SMART grid. Humans become simply nodes in its scheme.

    Money would be digitised and run on a blockchain. The humans allowed to live would be given digitised credits onto their implanted microchip if they did what the AI run system wants them to do

    You would have no freedom to make decisions for yourself as all would be dictated to you. Does that not sound like a soulless existence?

    kinda like the two mothers sitting before solomon. You'd be the mum who'd say ''kill us all'' just to ensure you destroyed the other mother

    Of course! That way I can be tracked whenever I have it with me and charged, which is almost never.

    Do you have any literature that would tell me which sinister parties to throw my weight behind?

    Regarding gender roles/identities, there are plenty of cultures which recognize more than 2 genders going back quite a way through history. Genders and biological sex are only the same thing in some narratives, but not in all.

    We can all distinguish an effeminate man from a macho man...so I'm not sure I agree that seeing masculine as distinct from male is problematic.

    You just described the problem.
