Haha I didn't even bother reading this post. But if you've ever worked with robots, you would know that an incredible amount of human work goes into making a decent robot. And those are high-paying jobs   Smiley

With the work I do, you don't see robots replacing humans. The robots just do the job more precisely than humans ever could. There are still just as many humans needed to keep the robots moving.

The trouble is that the capital-owning class that becomes a robot-owning class will have no reason to permit everyone else access to the products created by those robots, because they'll have nothing to offer in return. (Actually I can think of a handful of things they could offer, but most of them are really not very pleasant and there wouldn't be enough demand for them anyway.)

I completely agree. Like I said in an earlier post, unless we completely reform our ideas of property the vast majority of us are doomed.

So, robots serve the capitalists and human serve the robot, there will be a new career: robot service Cheesy

On further thought, don't you think this is strange? You become the slave of what you created...
