9. I think it's society's biggest question, actually.

I also thought about this a few nights ago in reference to drugs.

It seems to me that a large part of the opposition to freedom of drugs is some perceived detriment to personal productivity and achievement. But what if human labor productivity becomes largely a relic of an unautomated past? Will we no longer care? Will government, itself, become the main dispenser of sedatives and hallucinogens, like soma in "Brave New World"?
