Trust me, if I didn't need money, I wouldn't work. I'd do what I do when I'm on vacation or during the week-ends. I might do what's considered "work" by personal interest, but I'm not going to put any effort into something I don't feel like doing.
And who's going to do the real hard work ?
I mean, it's a fun idea in a way, and if automation does all the work, it might actually be feasible to a degree, but I don't see humans bursting their asses for nothing in the forseeable future.
Personally, I think money is probably the most significant invention in our history.
