Its a capitalist society that creates your fabled utopia of
nano-technological freedom from want, and it will be a libertarian one
at that, because as it is now, governments are only interested in nano
for weapons, and don't want to give the common person access to the
technology for daily needs, then you must also beleive that 'capitalism
can provide the means'. What is it you don't understand about the fact
that more people live at a much higher standard of living where
capitalism is king than in any other nation? Capitalism is obviously
doing a much better job than your Marxism.
