The entire trillion dollar grocery industry is transforming before your eyes as Amazon sparks a robot war with other grocery store enterprises. Stores will be largely free of cashiers, pickers and stockers, putting millions of people out of work. Technocrats invent because they can not because there is a good reason to do so.
Computer modeling has become a god unto itself, and Technocrat operators are never concerned that their data and programming is uncertain. So, if rising water doesn’t drown you, tornados and hurricanes don’t destroy you, then you will likely die of hunger due to food shortages.
Technocrats at DARPA are creating a new technology that could potentially become the deadliest bioweapon on earth. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is an agency of the Department of Defense and develops technology for the military.
Restaurants have traditionally provided a solid foundation for entry-level jobs in society. As robots displace young workers, the possibility exists that, after the novelty wears off, the public will completely reject restaurant automation, leaving Technocrat inventors shaking their heads.
Technocrats build because they can and because they are driven to do so. All problems have a scientific solution and there are innumerable problems to keep them employed. However, the social and ethical problems raised are not their concern, so they just keep on inventing.
Tofu is not meat; neither is lab-grown tissue. However, meat-haters have long been trying to have non-meat products marketed as meat to confuse consumers and harm the animal husbandry industry. Missouri has made history by standing up to this cartel by legislating that ‘meat’ means ‘meat’ and nothing else.
There is a proliferation of startup companies with new visions of advanced GMO technology to modify the human food supply. Technocrats believe that every problem facing man requires a scientific solution. Where there is no obvious problem, one will be created and then solved. In this case, the long-term effect of modifying the food chain is totally unknowable.
Technocrats in China live for maximum efficiency and have figured out that the way to get rid of China’s discarded food is to feed it to cockroaches. Cockroach ‘ranches’ can host 4-5 billion of the insects at one time.
Cattle have been demonized by environmental radicals as ‘unsustainable’, carbon belchers and wrecking the environment. To their chagrin, the exact opposite has been demonstrated in practice. Cattle are highly beneficial to the ecosystem while proving an excellent source of protein.
Robotics threatens to disrupt the entire food service industry by replacing both waiters and cooks. Their is no wisdom associated with this endeavor since ethical discussion is not part of the Technocrat mind. Other industries face a similar disruption simply because someone ‘can’.
