For humans the notion of not competing and not contributing to a society is ironically the luxury of an advanced society.
For those that partake in this luxury of not having to produce yet enjoy the base goal of survival (and then some), there are other strings attached. Enjoying the luxury of knowing the check really is in the mail and sweat equity coming only in the form of tossing on a robe and hustling out to the mailbox is the dismissal of inane gifts from God. Not only do those gifts never evolve but other senses seem to dull from lack of use. In the end selling your soul has the physical impact of muscle and brain atrophy.Becoming (Mindless) Robots
Selling your soul means you are indebted and from time to time will be called upon to perform tasks. For the most part these days it's mostly just going into the voting booth to keep your benefactors in power. The entire process is actually making people more like robots that replaced human counterparts in the movie Stepford Wives. These still-human dropouts have become programmed robots that go through the motions of life without really living. Our mindless kin live de facto by the same set of rules outlined by Isaac Asimov.
I often write and talk about people selling their soul to the merchants of social justice in return for the cushiest life with the least amount of effort. The reason I put it in those terms is because such action goes against not only American DNA but also human nature. Humans at their most basic level are like any other living organism on the planet that want to procreate to keep the species moving along. Once that's been secured there are still instincts like competition and recreation that constitute life, even for domesticated animals.
