People aren't naturally lazy. Just the opposite. However, creativity and perceived meaning play very important roles in the work we want to do. We work either out of necessity (survival, for example, which is/should be getting more and more unnecessary) or to keep active (whether physically or mentally). People are planners, creators, and doers. If something is no longer necessary for us to work on, then let the machines do it. This will free us to work on the things we actually really enjoy, provided that the systems we have in place follow suit. As it stands, people are still working long hours when technology has advanced way beyond that. The system as a whole is still stuck in the "old way" of doing things.
