You're conflating issues here: it's not "will" of the majority at all - it's a lot more like evolution where there is no directed result but a trend towards beneficial change. In fact, it can be seen as an "evolution of society" - remember that some evolutionary pathways are dead ends that largely die out!

As such there is no "assimilation" - Borgish or otherwise - just change.

Yes, there are jobs where physical presence in necessary - doctors, nurses, construction, and many others. That doesn't mean that there is any lack of care involved - it may even improve their lot by reducing the flow of people at peak times to a "civilized" level!

Even for companies, WFH is a financial bonus: no need for big expensive buildings that are empty 2/3 of time; that need expensive heating and cooling systems, and so forth.

Better for work/life balance, better for the planet, better for corporate balance sheets. What's not to like? Big Grin | :-D
