We have potential all the same.

But all that's required is for us to be smart enough to tick a box

To many have nots, far to few haves imho.

Same with the lottery. But you have to buy a ticket to stand a chance,right?

History has only been bloody, ever.

Cant argue with facts.


A paradigm shift the likes of which we have yet to witness in all of recorded history is what's required to shift humanities gear i imagine.

There's no one capable of what you speak of that has any of our best interests at heart.

We're a resource to be used and abused as they see fit.

Always have been.

They would keep us alive because if there aren’t lower classes then the “elite” class means absolutely nothing.

If everybody alive is a billionaire…being a billionaire becomes the norm…it is no longer a sign of success.

Simple question:


If machines replace humans, how will humans earn the money they will need to buy the things the machines now produce?


If it is the "elites'" idea to replace the labor force with machines, to optimize their profits, their plan is ridiculous on its face because they will be reducing their customers' ability to afford those products, thus reducing profitability.


Remember, you don't get to be one of the "elite" by being stupid.


Would be a pretty stupid person who thinks the elites would go on with capitalism after they replace the commoners with robots.

Ok this is very frustrating.. your frame of mind is way off. You think Liberals are somehow being fooled and this "agenda" your speaking about is some secret ploy we are ignorant too?

Quite the opposite my friend.

Liberals contain "Progressives" what is the meaning of Progressive? Looking forward at the new, tomorrow, change.. and not looking backwards at tradition.

The whole reason the left's (which I am a part of for clarification) policies and alignments are the way they are is because we view an inevitable future and want to prepare for it instead of burying our heads in the sand.

Globalism- Inevitable with increasing technology, development of third world countries, and ease of communication. No stopping it.

AI/Machine workforce- It's inevitable, it's why we have seen it in every sci Fi movie, why lay a human to do something a machine can do better and cheaper?

One world government- As time goes on, our borders become less necessary. We realize we aren't people seperates by country allegiance but instead a collective HUMANITY, Earthlings essentially. This will probably be propelled by encountering extraterrestrials. Our differences with eachother will seem MUCH smaller then.


It's why Andrew Yang literally ran on a proposed basic gov. Income, he has said it. It's because he sees a massive portion of the workforce being replaced by AI and machines, if 50% of the workforce is replaced, and maybe 15% of that is upskilled, that's at LEAST 35% unemployment AT LEAST.

It will happen eventually... Its technological progress.

Doesn't it make sense to embrace it ratger than fight a losing battle? Especially when embracing it cAn propel the human race forward?

Feudalism is the future, at least I personally believe such. It will be a return to where society originated but with the addition of modern technology. My great-grandfather was a mason and he always hinted that likely possibilty to me as a young child.

The agenda really isn't hidden anyways and requires minimal effort to see once you pull back the curtain that is deflection. Sadly all the ignorant, unwashed mentally and philosophically pox-ridden masses who take in such utter BS that the MSM talking heads spew as fact are the norm.

This the situation will never go in favour of free thinkers sadly so the average person is completely doomed. A somewhat depressing subject to discuss but very relevant to discuss due to the cogs in the machine nearly being in place.

I think the plan is to have robots/a.i. produce for the elites. At the end of the day fols like you and I really are not essential to them. If a robot can cook meals, pilot there ships/planes, then we are no longer neccessary. What happens when a psycho or narcissist no longer has a want or desire for you? I'm sure you've had a crazy ex or two.
a reply to: Mantiss2021



Was about to write something like this. Read a lot of arguments refuted because of the "who's going to buy the stuff made by robots". We, as the normal people, are not needed then. Not in the quantities we now have. Most of the infrastructure and production chains are built for the masses. "They" could be very well thinking they are the good ones. Like, giving the human race some more time and letting nature heal. Good and evil depends on the viewpoint very often. All the resources they see wasted by billions of people for nothing.

The above is not my opinion, I value every living being and try to be thankful for what nature provides me.

How much money does it take to be considered "elite"? Or is it determined by "blood lines"?

What can be done....

I think it's not money but access to resources, technology and knowledge. Influence comes with that.

Money is just the vessel used.

Believe me when I say I've had those same sentiments.

I do believe our communication is about to be altered, or completely shut off.

At one time weren't they talking about paying some sort of fee, and I don't mean monthly, I mean we'd have to register with NO anonymity and pay like a dime per comment?

It was something to that affect. But I do know TPTB are scratching their heads saying "the natives are getting restless" and you have to assume CEOs and government officials and alphabet agencies and MSM are aware of what the popular opinions are of Americans and people all over the globe. It IS the beginning of an uprising. The Left, such as Antifa & BLM, darted from the starting line first. How long before the Right takes off, and NO, ATS lefties, the "Insurrection" was not the Right taking off. The idiots plottin' to kidnap Gretchen Bukkakeface was not the Right taking off. The Right has it's share of morons, but they do not represent the Conservative Right, just like BLM does not represent black people.

But my point/opine is TPTB haven't made a move on internet control BECAUSE at the moment they're aforementioned useful idiots are doing what TPTB want. The moment internet "traffic" suggests the Right is ready to pounce, TPTB will blow the whistle and yell timeout. Then it's goodbye interweb, hello federally controlled superhighway with tolls EVERYWHERE. I have a hard time translating my thoughts to English, my first language is Gibberish.

They'll keep a few people around. It's just no fun to torture and abuse machines. They would miss that.

Until we build it.


That way we may be facilitated a larger Zoo.

Yeah, that's what I'm also thinking. They must have programs running to monitor the total unrest and at what percentage they consider to be the tipping point they already have the next switch to flip.

They would probably hunt us for sport. And maybe keep a scientist class but once ai truly awakens there's no further need for us. We could even be presented to the ai as the first problem to solve and the last time I read about that the thing said it would put us in human zoos.

I promise you that tech will not be in the hands of a person that cares about the human race as a whole.

They could wipe us out with a plague and then awaken the ai and lie to it as media have shown they are willing to distort reality completely for a couple of years now.

They are in control of the narrative and what data will be shared with the ai.

As long as they aint in control of my weed supply. LoL

The human race as a whole requires humanity 2.0, and in spades no less.

Reality is all about perspective, and ours is so very, very, limited, if by nothing less than simply longevity.

The narrative is the beat goes on buddy, we simply don't know any other tune.
