    this is going to be a paradigm shift for the whole of society as unskilled roles are increasingly automated, the world of 9-5 work as most know it is coming to an end, how society evolves to cope with this however im not sure

    No worries, because Lyin' Donald is going to uninvent robot technology in order to give all those Rust Belt workers their old metal bashing and coal mining jobs back.

    bureaucracy is quite robotic so I'm not all that surprised about this.

    Garenteed income is that much more important now... especially since trickle down economics doesn't work when the wealthy don't spend (like now).

    I would love to replace my idiot leftist state Assemblyman with a robot. In fact the entire New York State Assembly could be replaced with robots. We might finally see some positive accomplishments in Albany along with a major tax cut.icon_idea.gif
