More humorous still than some dullards who fail to recognize these trends toward people being replaced by machines,is how the technology that costs
people their jobs was fobbed off on them as a benefit to humanity.
"We have technology in the wings that will make your life easier,you should let us bring it out and use it." the kind of horsecrap BS the talking
heads for the money power always spew forth.
Technology nearly always costs more than it saves in one way or another.Example:Automobiles,heart disease from lack of physical activity,nevermind the
pollution produced from their manufacture and use,and then the utter carnage on the roadways worldwide...DUH!.
Any technology that makes this existence easier is welcomed,so long as the "great exploiters of all things" or "Capitalists" do not have ultimate
control over that technology,which they do BTW.
Capitalism is fine and dandy unless it is allowed to infect every aspect of existence,there are limits to the benefits of all things,just look at our
destroyed environment/world.Yes Virginia,it is destroyed.
As far as people on financial assistance/food stamps etc.,one must consider what this economy would look like without their consumption of goods and
services,it would be a whole lot uglier,you think there is a problem with crime now?,consider people who cannot survive without taking what they need
to do so.
Welfare protects the rich,and fobs the blame off onto the poor as far as the ignorant slave masses think,since the majority of people cannot
think.They just think in the way they are conditioned to think.
The Exploiters are exploiting you.
I drifted off of my original reply to your post,I meant no offense to anyone personally.
