Entry-level jobs at grocery stores have been career-starters for millions of teenagers over the decades. The Technocrat solution is to wipe those jobs out with efficiency.
4th Industrial Revolution
The utter lack of security on voting systems around the world shatters the illusion of tamper-free elections. Technocrats who build these technologies have no sense of building in security from the start, and could care less about patching them up after they have been hacked. White-hat hackers busted in to many machines within minutes of starting. Un-hackable voting machine is an oxymoron.
When AI and facial scanning are perfected, check-in at the gate can be totally automated and anyone on the no-fly list can be immediately carted off to detention. Technocrats apparently see nothing wrong with this scenario.
China has already emerged as the largest and most advanced Technocracy in the world, but it will solidity those advances with artificial intelligence. Essentially, AI will be used to operate the Technates (Smart Cities) and connect together various supply chains used in manufacturing and delivering goods and services. Social engineering will be fully automated.
This must-read article deserves a big shout-out to its author, Cathy O’Neill, who finally raises the right questions about AI, its intended and unintended risks, and the lives that might be ruined because of it. Who says young people cannot or do not ‘get it’?
Twisted Technocrat logic will make way for so-called ‘sentient’ robots to receive legal human status. What if a man ‘rapes’ a sex robot that he does not own? Does the robot have rights and/or moral choice? Technocracy is coloring every conceivable aspect of human existence.
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.’
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.
