In the 21st century Welfare State, 5% of the population will get really
smart really fast. They and their machines will feed, clothe, house, and
entertain (the next big entitlement) everyone else.

The good news is that as the smart get smarter, the productive will get
more productive. It will become easier to just pay off the laggards -- each
really smart person will be able to sustain millions of them.

So, I don't think we have to worry about people not adapting. They already
are. <g>
