Its a concept that should be intimately understood by our entire voting populace. Changes to the workforce drive changes to societal structures. We can no longer vote with 20th century ideals and goals. We, as a country, need to vote in a predictive manor based on the direction the mechanization of the workforce is inevitably going to steer us. We NEED to embrace the change and not keep trying to cram the round peg into the 3-D printed carbon nanotube tesseract. There's an opportunity here to turn with the current that we can't afford to miss, otherwise the transition is going to be really freaking ugly



Sounds like we need a presidential directive that says robots can only work 15 hours a week. Maybe a few million jobs where hackers mess up the robots and then they can work at night and fix them.

lol damnit man, the list I asked you about the other day - your ranked perceived threats to the US people. I know you're just a self proclaimed "smart ass", but I'm curious about your actual thoughts on this

I think you missed the part (the first sentence) where I said If I were to sit and rank the problems...

I haven't sat and ranked the problems. I have no interest in sitting and ranking the problems. I only know that the media problem would rank somewhere near companies changing their running shoe designs every god damned year. The Kinvaras used to feel like running on clouds...now it's like running in clown shoes.

considering the amount of time you spend criticizing people's opinions on things, I would have assumed you would have at least endeavored to craft yourself one or two well-thought-out opinions about "what is the root of all these bad opinions that people hold, and why do they suck so much". Maybe I'm giving you too much credit

You overestimate how much I care about the opinions of others, my desire to change an opinion, the amount of time I actually spend typing up 100-150 words, and my desire for credit. You also underestimate how much I like to give people **** and how much I respect people who can dish me some solid, non-basic **** in return.

Now, I'm not sure why we're talking about that theoretical list mentioned in another thread...in here. Seems kind of desperate, if you ask me. Which you didn't. So, maybe we're even.
