The End of Man?
"With the further development of computers and an adequate mass production of teletotals, schools and universities were abolished. Lectures by professors were recorded on tape and transmitted to the students by teletotal. Examinations were answered by pressing buttons. Anyone could receive instruction at any state in whatever subject he chose. A numerous staff was needed for programming and for organizing instruction; therefore no serious unemployment amoung schoolteachers arose." - Olof Johannesson, The End of Man? (1968)
