  • Welcome to geoffmobile.com radio where I'm going to be reading aloud some interesting

  • facebook discussions from my facebook page.

  • All of this content is coming from my friends on facebook who are very diverse and interesting

  • people, so I'm sure the discussions will be illuminating to some of you.

  • Today's topic is about automation and jobs in the new world of technology and economy.

  • The question is,

  • "Even if everyone worked hard and went to college, someone would still need to make

  • our pizzas, stock our shelves, drive our cabs. Quit looking down on them and assuming they

  • deserve to live in poverty."

  • That is a quote from facebook.com/ourtimeorg

  • and the annotation was, "Exactly!"

  • and it had 8 likes.

  • My friend AC said,

  • "Imagine how boring the world would be if EVERYONE became doctors, lawyer, engineers/architects,

  • software developers, etc. Then how do we get to work without bus drivers? What if you want

  • to buy something and no one's opening any stores?"

  • 1 like

  • Alejandro said simply,

  • "robots"

  • 2 likes

  • Dan replied,

  • "That is precisely what I was gonna say. Blue collar jobs increasingly get taken over by

  • automation once it becomes affordable. Hell, there is even talk of hand bombers at my work

  • being replaced by hand bombing and picking robots."

  • And Martin replied,

  • "Glad someone else mentioned automation. There are already self-driven cars, robotic chefs

  • and more. I think it quickly becomes a question of ethics, rather than financial viability

  • - what happens to all those taxi drivers who get replaced?"

  • 1 like

  • I replied myself and I said,

  • "I like the idea of a guaranteed minimum income for workers displaced by robots. We should

  • redefine what work means."

  • 1 like

  • Chris replied,

  • "Geoff is right. Everyone. Everyone gets replaced. I guarantee that there is nothing that cannot

  • eventually be done by robots, including designing and building new robots. What happens when

  • 10% of the population is employable? What about 5%? We should redefine what work means

  • in such a way that it is not required to justify one's existence."

  • 2 likes

  • AC replied,

  • "Many of you are wrong. Robot chefs will NOT replace human chefs, and driverless cars will

  • not displace drivers. Robots and humans can definitely work side-by-side but will NEVER

  • replace humans completely."

  • 1 like

  • he also continues,

  • "Also, please remember that 99% of inventions are just curiosities, only a few will become

  • practical. Take flying cars, for example. The idea has been around since the 1920's,

  • glamorized in the 1950's, and became possible to produce in the 1990's, but we'll never

  • see flying cars because on a social level, it is not feasible and will never be. Look

  • through old issues of Popular Mechanics and Popular Science from the 50's and 60's and

  • you'll know what I'm talking about."

  • 1 like

  • Chris replied back,

  • "I don't see why they would never replace humans. We've replaced them completely in

  • a number of tasks already, and continue to replace them in more and more jobs."

  • 2 likes

  • That is the end of my facebook discussion. I thought it's a very interesting topic about

  • the quote,

  • "Even if everyone worked hard and went to college, someone would still need to make

  • our pizzas, stock our shelves, drive our cabs. Quit looking down on them and assuming they

  • deserve to live in poverty."

  • The answer to that is that we're going to have robots coming along that will do that

  • work for us, and we may need to redefine what someone needs to do in their life to be a

  • productive member of society.

  • Maybe working is no longer part of the requirement in the future for people to live a successful

  • life.

  • I think one of the solutions to that is the "guaranteed income proposal", which is being

  • explored by many smart people around the world in leadership positions.

  • I definitely think that for guaranteed income, once everything becomes automated, people

  • are still going to need to survive somehow, so maybe it's better to let people live off

  • the spoils of the robots they created.

  • Anyway, what do you think of this discussion, do you agree with this? Anything appeal to

  • your mind, something you think about in terms of this discussion, so please leave your comments

  • in the comment section below.

  • If the comments are interesting enough below this video I will do another video reading

  • out those comments, so please feel free to leave as many comments as you like about these

  • topics.

  • Thanks again for watching and hope you have a great day, and take care for now. Bye bye

  • for now, and if you liked my video, please click subscribe below to Geoffmobile podcast.

  • Hope you have a great day.
