What Happens To Society When Robots Replace Workers?

itzly Re:Wrong way of thinking. (192 comments)

The term "minimally" is too vague. Truly minimal means zero regulation, thus allowing armed gangs to roam the streets and steal your stuff. And as soon as you add more regulation, you need laws. And laws means you have to have representatives to write the laws, and others to enforce them. And before you know it, people want more laws, and you end up where we are now. That's how we got here, you know ? Everything has been tried before.

Guess what, humans are essentially the only ones who can't tell when bad weather is coming.

And we're also the only ones that can understand the weather forecast on TV.

Yeah, maybe I just need to imagine a 10 pound 3D printer where you can feed rocks in the top, and sophisticated nanotechnology drops out the bottom.
