So basically, to work hard is simply voluntary and the results should be rewarding enough. And if the results are bad? O well…I still get my fixed amount of luxury items/services. Hmmm….

So I could in principle sleep all day or sit on the couch all day watching television and I would still get my fixed amount of luxuries. Hmmm…not too bad actually.

What if others who do cooperate oppose the exile because they are close to them?

Makes sense.

Ok, let me state an example:
A father gets up on a beautiful sunny Sunday and wants to take his wife and kids to a place he knows at 100 km distance where there is a beautiful lake where they can go sailing, do some sightseeing and go to a fancy restaurant that evening before returning home.

P.S.
One of the kids already had his/her share of luxuries

Man, I so wanted to live in that area and this lazy tv watching console retard got there first.

After creation, consumption is free for everyone - naturally.

Essentially - there will be no outward secrets of any kind.

That said, the vast majority of crime motivators will be non-existant.

Law enforcement is likely to be required at some stage in some form. It will depend on the response to living in a society extremely unfamiliar to us. If such a force is required - it will be obligatory learning for all members of society who're capable of enforcing it.

My suggestion is to prepare for it and put it in place - but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that we won't need it.
Very good point. You forgot to mention the neck collar with explosives.

Hmm, some fine piece of aeronautical engineering then? I would love to contribute to that. No easy task though, gonna have to work overtime to get it done on time, so I gonna need some smart co-workers and a boss with good organisation skills. But will I be guaranteed to have competent co-workers and most importantly a competent boss?

No, but 20 years allows for some polished fine tuning .
