We have to figure this out. Guaranteed basic income might or might not be the way to go, but something will have to replace "work" as the default mechanism by which people are permitted to attain a reasonable minimum quality of life. When automation creates 30% structural unemployment (personally, I think that will be a floor), there's no way today's approach to Western society can survive. There will be massive, violent upheaval, and we have to figure out how to avoid that before it gets that far. And I somehow doubt that massive population reductions are going to be on the table.
