The Internet has brought prosperity to many, but suburbia, where poverty is rising dramatically, is not included. Technocrat-minded companies like Amazon are most often blamed for creating a new class of citizens – the ‘unemployables.’
4th Industrial Revolution
Tesla (Elon Musk) swears that tax breaks have nothing to do with its auto sales, but this is the second incident of collapsed sales after tax subsidies are removed. I have contended for years that the entire alternative energy/green economy is propped up by government subsidies and taxpayer money.
Likening today’s AI to little children is a logic fail and creates a slippery slope: namely, it now calls for the pseudo-science of psychology to analyze AI’s behavior and thinking processes. This is like “they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” (Matthew 15:14)
Warning! U.S. citizens need to face the brutal facts surrounding robotic replacement of human labor, and express some alarm before it is too late. Technocrats are bent on obsoleting humans from the workforce and relegating them to Universal Basic Income (UBI). The new class of ‘unemployables’ will essentially be a new slave class supported with a subsistence wage.
Mark Zuckerberg is very willing to spend taxpayer money, but has little interest in parting with his own fortune. His lust for UBI reveals Zuckerberg’s immaturity and naïveté. UBI is tantamount to slavery for the ‘unemployable”class from which there will be no escape.
It is a dimwitted fantasy to treat Artificial Intelligence and robots as sentient human beings, when they are not, nor can they ever be. Yet, as Japanese men are having sex with silicon dolls, others are trying to teach morals to robots using ‘parenting skills.’
The grass was not greener on the other side of the ocean, and turns out to be a cheap plastic imitation. Companies are not looking for cheaper labor markets since it is cheaper to invest in robotics right where they are. This trend will hit the west like a ton of bricks over time. Read the entire story and pull out the displacement numbers for China alone.
With sex already down sharply in Japan, men are turning to sex dolls to find ‘true love’. This is demographic suicide because reproduction is impossible. Technocrats who build lifelike sex dolls do so because they can, not because there is even one shred of evidence that they will be good for mankind.
Ma runs Alibaba, China’s equivalent of Amazon, and is one of the richest men in the world. He concludes that if nothing is done to prevent it, we are headed to WWIII. Ma does not regret being part of the Technocracy that brought us to this point, but apparently he is scaring himself along with everyone else.
This is a must-read article on the real impact of automation and AI on employment, which is reportedly being vastly underestimated. As Technocracy draws closer to critical mass, this mega-trend will lead to a siren call for Universal Basic Income (UBI). UBI is tantamount to outright slavery because it will lock in the new class of humanity called ‘unemployables’.
