Someone once said that every hot startup in Silicon Valley is designed to replace not having a mother around the house any more.
Has there been a decisive piece about how all the hottest SV startups are essentially Peter Pan services for undomesticated libertarians.
The entire history of technology as it's being funded (not created, but funded) right now is about young men who are baffled by "adulting" and are suffering from failure to launch.
The problem here is that we have created a tech oligarchy that has the money and need for domestic support but we have simultaneously wiped out the feudal-inspired servant class in America. So they have automated it.
Not that housekeepers and chatelaines and the rest don't exist; of course they do. It's just that as we have moved towards greater social equality it has become shameful, in the middle class of a democratic society, to retain servants.
