Had this awesome comment left on my blog (from dkorkh), I think it is the best answer to his question (it's certainly something I've struggled to explain to people):

The answer to anyone’s “But what if I am automated out of a job?” has been successfully summed in Russel Crow’s “pump-up” speech from Gladiator.

“If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face [obvious effect of absolute automation], do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you’re already dead!”
