I figured that there are quite a few Neo-Liberals on this forum, or well the 'Fuckers are just to lazy to work!' faction, which feel pretty strong when it comes to social welfare, health care, taxes and all that while I guess supporting the idea of free enterprice, corporations, privatisation and all that. To those people, I have one question. What should we do about this? Is there some Neo-Liberal or capitalist idea (seriously now) that could be applied to this new kind of automatisation that might get rid of 50% of the jobs? Not just cheap labor, but really also high quality jobs like Doctors, Lawyers maybe even engineers. Basically anything, that a human does, could be eventually done by a machine, just better. It's not a question of 'if' but 'when'. The human mind is a blue print, and a machine or programm could in theory do it, if its programming is sophisticated enough.
