What can humans do to earn their keep is unclear.
This "earning one's keep" is a pretty recent notion. For most of human
history life was about self-sufficiency and very small cooperative groups.
7+ billion people won't be able earn a living via manual labor, manual
skill, or artistic expression in a future where robots can do most of that
better than humans. So maybe the population will crash dramatically or
we'll move to a new system where earning a living isn't necessary. Who
knows? Too say to say how things will shake out.
