As a person who is known to be a strong proponent of social justice and reform, the “little guy” getting a fair deal etc. One might be surprised that I am not against automation taking jobs from my fellows; that is only if it is done in a way which could benefit us all.
I was at Wal-Mart a couple weeks ago my fiance and I were about to check out we had the same amount of stuff, while she decided to go with a human I went with the new self checkout. It was extremely easy and quick. I was waiting on her while she was still in line. With the advent of quantum computing it will not be long before most of our jobs are replaced with machines. I say that’s a great thing. Why? Because I like beaches, reading, sleeping in, and movies. If we do this right, it is a win win.
I am not saying we will not have to work, just our work will not take close to 40+ hours of our lives per week. I propose a restructuring of society into a collective which if you choose to participate you work at a job which is your passion, the job that you were born for; but only in a official capacity a few hours per week. We need time for others like you to contribute. The rest of the work, the jobs nobody wants but people only do because they need to eat will be replaced with automation. Yet this will only work if corporations get on board. Why? Because the monies generated by participants and corporations would be distributed equally so that all participants have plenty! This may seem like a fantasy but it is only a fantasy if we say it is not possible. I guarantee we can automate almost every job with little human intervention. Sound good?
See you at the beach🤗
