I've brought this up several times.

We need to decide how society is going to function once we reach the post-occupational point.

Because it's coming sooner than many realize.


I think it starts with Sara Connor. We won't need McD's!

You can twist this all you want to fit your own narrative, but these were in the works far longer than people were pushing for $15/hour wages in these places. It honestly doesn't matter what you do for a living, if they can find a way to replace you like this, then they will.

Everyone is struggling even qualified dev's and engineers.

We are need to let our culture evolve which can't happen with all the monkey minds trying to pretend that there's 4 billion high paying jobs out there for everyone.

Yes. When I was a little kid, the idea seemed to be that we would enter a Utopia where every need was catered for by machines and would spend our leisure time in luxury.

Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the way our machines are "helping" us as a population.

At what point, I wonder, will we become too expensive to keep?

Eventually, a scenario like the movie WALL-E will occur in the not too far future.

Lazy fatties on hover chairs.

You can still blame the cook for making it wrong. Not that I'd ever go to a McDonald's, but you know.


That is correct. They need to implement the robo-cooks as well.

You see, I like grilled cheese and I like hamburgers.... but I do NOT like cheeseburgers. I also don't like cheese on my tacos or burritos.

I'm SICK AND TIRED of either having to bring food back to the counter or worse, when I take it to go.... I'm sick and tired of basically throwing out food because some moron can not or will not comprehend the phrase, "no cheese."

The only option for a highly automated world is basic income for all people. Otherwise you end up with a nightmare scenario where only business owners accrue wealth and barrier to entry for new business owners is unbelievably high. At some point you realize people won't have jobs due to automation aren't lazy, they just can't lift 1000 lbs for every minute of the day, or they can't do advanced calculus in less than a second.

I don't want human robots I want them to look like robots or it will get weird....with robot voices also.
Mind you could be swayed with the Anita robot.


Lol true it would get weird, I want one of those Anita robots too, she's so good at playing the robot character that I'd probably feel strange if she was my wife in real life lol.

The one and only secure job is computer programmer. Yet I don't fear for our future at all because the less jobs that are needed due to automation, firstly the cheaper growing your own food will be via robotics, and secondly the more money is available for charity. Of course all of this positive future depends entirely on a reduction in rampant immorality and corruption of society. We must stop people from taking other people's property including both money and land without their permission, or our future is bleak.

Because kiosks weren't in development already? Do you honestly believe if people will just work for ever decreasing sums of money, corporations in their infinite benevolence will stop trying to reduce labor costs?

Ugh.

Socialist "utopias," duh.


Automation is great, but sadly, I feel that virtual reality will take place of the labored environment we've all helped to create up to this point. Muscle atrophy will turn us into stick figures that live on a "credit system" where we earn points based upon how subservient and burdensome we are to the socialist system. The second episode of Black Mirror on Netflix demonstrates this well. I implore you to watch it if possible. It's scary...

I was really smashed in the city one night and staggered into Mc Donalds for a feed.
I had to order on one of those touch screens, I found it easy to use even when seeing double.
I puked in the toilets and my sunglasses plopped into the bowl, so I left and went partied some more.

We are already there.

Do you realize the amount of capital I would need to buy my own extruder or CNC machine to create my own products?

Astronomical.

Starting a business is already out of reach for everyone 30 and below.

Sorry your wrong the reality is for most experienced programmers it's already not a secure job anymore.

It won't be long:

Rise of the burger-flipping machines: Robots churn out 400 burgers an hour

Soon, the manager will be the only human being working inside a McDonald's.

Greed, greed, and more is not enough!

I cook at home, I do not support GMO foods much less fast food to begin with.

Many Americans can not afford a college education I sure couldn't in my days, however I did ok and became an entrepreneur in restoring and selling antique telephones, mostly Western Electric.

What are people going to do for a living if this continues?

If the government would make education much cheaper, where everyone can get a college degree, then I can see some good come out of all this.

So what will the tens of millions of low wage workers in America do?

25 million engineers?

Factoring in the laws of supply and demand what will that do?

What is currently happening to programmers wages?

100's of highly qualified and skilled applicants being offered 57k for a job that payed 157k five years ago.
