We need to work together and allow technology to replace jobs as a goal for humanity.

Inspiring emotional thoughts, but...what is your template for change?
Ah, you have no plan? Just bitch about it on t'interwebs eh? lol
I'm all ears if you have something realistic to support over the current situation, but if you have nothing to share I shall just dismiss it as emotional dreaming.

No we don't need jobs. This is one of the biggest distractions used against us. We need to work together and allow technology to replace jobs as a goal for humanity.
The job paradigm is to keep us focused on the economy which is to distract us from something...
They want to keep us from pursuing spirituality and to keep us from being curious as to our origins. It's a tool to divide us and pit us against each other.
Someone wants to keep us busy, But why?

A firm employs say 100 men, it upgrades with computers and robots that do 50% of the work. Now to believe the lie told at the start of the industrial revolution" the machine will make it easier to do your job and you will have more leisure time" ie. you will still be employed but the machines will earn your money. THAT IS WHAT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED. That is where the OP is coming from"why should we work for our money when the machines are earning it for us"? Now the real world. The employers saw that they didn't need the workforce so the got rid of them and the money that should have gone to the workforce to pay their wages they pocketed. That's why you have multi billionaires owning firms and millions of unemployed. But you yanks wont see that as you use the excuse(yes it is an excuse) that the man owns the firm so he's entitled to the profit. It was the same 200 years ago as it is today.
