I beg to differ.

I sure hope not everyone will learn programming and that in the future we keep having bread backers, nurses, fashion designers, baristas hair cutters, professors, doctors, writers, artists, house builders, actors, etc...

And I forgot, we also need farmers. I'm pretty sure farmers are more important than programmers. Try for a couple of weeks to live without new programs and without food to find out by yourselves.

Besides learning programming because some rich people told do so is probably the silliest reason to learn it. Also, obviously those guys didn't get rich by doing programming but by owning companies who went on to be extreme outliers in term of success.

We mock the little girl who dream to be the next Madonna, but nor from the grown up who dreams to be the next Elon Musk, which is about as likely. I stand with the little girl, her dream is more interesting.

Yesss, everybody got the dreams and everybody got the different dreams. It's is necessary that the balance of the society continue to maintain with different people working in different filed of their interest.
