    it's funny i have only been able to find one yang banger in the comments. this is obviously a video they don't want you to see, because it goes against the whole idea that there aren't going to be any jobs due to automation. 17:34

    There will be pushes to make you more and more dependent on the system. Resist those pushes at every opportunity you can and reverse your trajectory by increasing self sufficiency

    Meh calling bullshit that's one company that supposedly managed in its market to keep enough growth to still hire people is a anomaly and or just smudging the truth. Anyone notice how they knew exactly how many employees they had before but didn't bother to mention how many more new ones they have taken on. Just forgot that number eh? What a coincidence.

    So Ocado might be employing more workers.It just means their company is growing, thus displacing a less automated grocery store such as Walmart.

    Yet another "wulp, that's how it is, get over it" piece. In the 1970's we understood that overpopulation was root of troubles. Empowering women reduces spurious birthing, technology improves carrying capacity, and it was starting to work. Now the narrative is Pollyanna BS. "Oh, well, floor it and we'll see what happens". A no growth society is coming. You know that. Don't fear the reaper, you are men (the spirit is infinite, unconstrained) not beasts (meat blob). Ask not what you can do for your machine, but what your machine can do for us. The grossly overcompensated managers of the World will fall farthest, fastest. They have been dazzled by their own devices, and A.I. doesn't care. Hopefully, necessity being a Mother, they will invent the way forward out of enlightened self interest.

    Argument: Humans can be retrained during this revolution.
    Counter: The average human can only learn so fast and industries change much faster than during any other industrial revolution. The weakest minds will suffer a lot as a result. We owe it to them to share some of the bounty so that they do not suffer needlessly.

    Without political intervention to moderate AI and spread the wealth it creates, redundant humans will have no money to purchase the services and goods enhanced by automation. It could be "capitalism without consumers." In such a world, the only opportunities will be in high-tech crime possibly via the Dark Web. Capitalism is a good servant but a bad master, moreover it acts without any direction except greed and with no concern for people, nation and environment. The uppermost .01% have only a few years before the American or British version of the French Revolution is upon us. They need to escape from San Francisco to New Zealand soon, before the riots begin.

    Is it any wonder the young folks of today are accepting of socialism? Capitalism itself may disappear if steps to compensate for the destructive social effects of AI are not taken by governments.
