My idealistic view is one in which automation maximizes people’s freedom by giving us more time to concentrate on the things we enjoy the most.

For most people (around 87%, if you believe that studies on extrinsic vs intrinsic motivation are applicable, along with data from other similar situations) what they will concentrate on is sloth, with substantial increases in alcoholism and drug abuse.
