Automation technology is a wonderful thing; in the hands of the right people. Fast food restaurants, grocery stores, factories, and more are replacing humans with machines. Robots are taking over and they are going to put people out of work. I think it is a wonderful thing. Most of these jobs are crap jobs that nobody wants anyway. Not many people in High School thought I want to work at Walmart for my career. People want to be painters, poets, astronauts, firemen, policemen, actors, sports players; come on, you get it. We take away talent from our nation and world by placing people in jobs that could easily be automated. This then begs the question of what about my job?
This is what I would do. I would gather the profits from the automation and divide it up among the people. I would build Universities that people could attend for free, provide the tools and skills that meet the potential of the individual. Have centers for people to go and meditate and pray all day. Grocery stores would be plentiful and you would not even have to pay for the food; grab what you need and leave. Hospitals would be filled with the sick and doctors not having to worry about money because money is not an issue. Prisons would be limited to only people who commit violent crimes and because of automation utility bills would become nonexistent. The only thing money would be good for is pleasure.
