Yes, there would be no need for slave owners. We are unable to say whether they would like it or not. They would need to do something other than slave own! They might like it!

That can go the list of things not needed. Unless a suitable defence is presented!

Water, there will be a need for clean drinking water.

Those looking for a way to stand out from the herd may have a hard time of it.

Are you looking to analyze something like the Venus Project?
