There will always be winners and losers in society.
You guys need to realize that other people winning doesn't mean you lose.

As machines replace people there will be free money.
It's about time we discuss the actual future on our doorsteps.
AI, AGI, human genetic engineering, and human computer integration is starting. Within 15 -30 years the world is not going to be the same place.
What about when robotics take up half or more of the armed services?
Frankly the only Democrats who get this are andrew yang and tulsi gabbard. The rest of them are doing the throw money at the base trick. Same one Republicans do with tax cuts while deficit spending.
Folks the tribes aren't going to help solve the real problems coming. If you stay in your tribe you have a much higher chance of waking up one day to find skynet has been created through Google and the government controlling all the tech, and the wealthy being the only ones with access to human genetic engineering for disease control and things like higher IQ.
Most politicians are very far behind reality. Yang seems to be the only person who gets it. His solutions are debatable but the discussion is real. That is how he gets tucker Carlson or Neil cavuto interested.

UBI is a great idea.
The argument is based on the idea with AI and self-driving trucks millions of workers will not have jobs. If automation and productivity is so high what are workers going to do?
I get the Republican message is always "so what, let people starve."
But if you want to have a strong economy the "customers" then the income has come from somewhere!
