Life as a service?

Life as-a-service (HCS), or in English "Life as a Service" (LaaS) found expression in the minds of several people or groups of people: here it was considered from the perspective of the total digitalization of life, turning all its services and demand a new political system capitulationism, and here a self-critical view from the US considering slugishly life as an attempt to solve the problem of unnecessary waste of resources (recognizing that Americans consume resources in 4 times more than stable provides, the entire planet) was.
