Your instincts seem to lean toward a leftword-style. Thus the confusion. If you talk about balancing outcomes, people assume there will be a surplus to balance.

I would say the Arch-Druid's approach (as I understand it) is closer to where the people (like myself) with children might go. A lower input future with hope.

I, like you, am skeptical of the "hope" part. Not because I don't think there is potential for hope. I just don't think we are likely to move in that direction. I am waiting for contrary evidence.

The various selling of Doom methods arguably are trying to get people to spend today's surplus toward a future safety net: metaphysical and/or physical. Given the relatively small amount of money involved, you get exactly what you expect, a few individual flashes of inspiration and a whole lot of bland.
