>>913559 >Where is my goddamn flying car and gigantic anarcho capitalist metropolitan societies >damn you leftists I think we are nearing the end of the skyscraper era, at least for common living quarters. The reason is flat-screen TVs.
The reason that we have skyscrapers today is because of the desirability of windows (the real kind) and of fire regulations that require windows.
When flat screens get so cheap and big that you can easily cover walls and ceilings with them, you can do something pretty dramatic with interior design: you can start getting rid of windows entirely. Cameras on the building's rooftop can show the view around the building, or you can connect to views from any other cameras you want to--with no concern for anyone else being able to see into your living area. Or just show blank screens on your walls (of any color!), or watch TV, or whatever. Turn them off for total darkness. Or show a picture of the starry sky on the ceiling screen.
What is a good-enough reason to change fire regulations? Buildings built with less surface area would be enormously more energy-efficient to heat and cool. Shorter buildings are easier to run plumbing in, and easier to provide more fire escape paths inside. And then you don't need skyscrapers.
Course, there may still be penthouses on top, for people who will pay more for real windows. But everybody isn't going to have real windows, and they probably won't miss them.

Only figuritively speaking not literally though you absolute mug

Just because people don't want something to be associated with their faggotry doesn't mean it isn't so and that they aren't a bunch of fuckin mugs
>>913598 Star Trek is explicitly a socialist welfare state. It's post-scarcity because of replicators, however, private property can be owned for personal endeavors, but no matter what your basic needs are met for by the state.
>>913621 I honestly don't understand how a state could continue to exist during a time of post-scarcity. They wouldn't be able to fool people anymore. i.e. communism is realistically the most likely system to emerge in a post-scarcity world, not socialism
