Well I think ideally the people in the commune would be doing heavy
lifting--either art to uplift the whole federation of communes/humanity as
a whole (not like classic socialist realist art, more just how art/media
enriches the public) or technological/engineering works to do the same
uplifting (but in a more concrete way).  The boring work would have to be
done by robots.  And maybe you go out and farm by hand with the robots once
a month...just for the experience ;9
