It's not just the political will but the social will. If we posit a future country where automation makes a significant percentage of people unemployed (and we posit that there are no job stimulus packets that are going to solve the problem) then the only way to sustain these people is through taxing those who do have jobs and some sort of welfare for those who don't. There are many people who would object to this being against their sense of "fairness"
I agree. And that's one reason why I'm not optimistic wrt the OP's question.
