3. The machines will replace all the people in their jobs (or at least the most important jobs). This is when the scenario of that topic is starting.


SO WHAT IF THEY DO.

That means that machines will replace all the farmers and food will be both abundant and free. No more cleaning toilets. No more scraping dog crap off the pavement.

If the machines perform the work of humans -- that means at a fundamental level they have no reason not to, nor any reason to not continue to do so.

I want my cooking, cleaning, farming, driving, nappy changing robot. Where can I sign up?

 

 

Food to be abundant and free can't happen in a capitalistic society.

 

If you mean, that when the machines take the jobs of the people everything fundamental will become free for everyone, such as the food, another exmaple can be the medical care, then where you can sign up? Well - in the comunist party.

Eliminated for what reason?

 

The planet can support 20 Billion + humans -- we currently produce 2700 kcal for each human alive -- politics and dictators are the problem.

 

In a post-scarcity (tech singularity world) -- there is no need to be 'productive' in the capitalistic sense.

 

I suggest you read some of "The Culture" series by Iain Banks.

 

...

 

You will be eliminated, and I think, that I posted clearly enough the reason. There will be a robot, that des your job better than you. As the first step you may eventually be simply fired, and left to starve to death together with your familly. So, what do you work, @sensei ? What will you do, when you get fired? And all other jobs are taken from machines?

 

The big players will use the machine,that is better from you, and will sell your kind of work for cents, thus making you impossible to compete and earn enough to feed your familly. This step if exists will be fine, but it may not exist. In this first step in the eyes of the rulers you turn into a dispossable fired useless mumbling junk.

 

At some point the dispossable mumbling loosers in Japan will be come too much, and suddenly the rulers of the world may decide to let after all, the North Korea to send you some missles.

 

During these two steps paralelly will be led a mafiotic war for taking control over the production. That great mafiotic warfare we may name simply the first stage.

 

After that warfare 99,9% of the big world rulers will have killed out each-other, and the remainig 0,1% of them will destroy all the rest of the people and will start living happily surrounded by controllable machines, doing whatever they want, and will have the entire planed solely for them and their familly, without any human idiot available, that to take the power from them. This we may call the second stage.

 

These steps and stages may not exist at all. The rulers may predict that development of the events very easilly, and plan a sudden totally unexpected global kill out, that to launch right after the most important proffessions are being automated. And things may move directly to the second stage.

 

 

Will AIs pay taxes? If I can't work, won't I get disability? I agree, read some culture novels.

 

 

Do you really believe yourself, that after becomming obsolete, the rulers of the world will care for you?


seivtcho, you've been working with too many amalgam fillings and it's taking it's toll. You're becoming mad as a hatter!

 

I have worked with amalgam fillings, but not much :) if something is taking its toll, its not the amalgam :)

Food to be abundant and free can't happen in a capitalistic society.

 

 

 

Prove it mathematically.

 

Hint: you can't.

 

With 90% of the wealth controlled by 1% of the population, a fraction of them could decide to FEED EVERYBODY for FREE!

 

Once again your ignorance shows through.

 

Serious question:

 

DO you actually understand what post-scarcity means?

These 1% who holds 90% of the wealth still haven't let everybdy free food at my knowledge.

 

Don't believe any plans, that they will feed you simply just like that for free. It is very naive to believe, that they ever will.

 

I know about the post-scarcity only what I red on wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia...carcity_economy

 

For the free foods you can be fooled very efficiently. The difference between the total enslavement and the wonderfull world, in which you receive everything of first need for free can be very tiny.

You said a capitalistic society cannot provide free and abundant food.

 

PROVE IT!

 

Else -- retract your statement.

 

The onus is upon YOU to prove your statement.  Otherwise your opinion is just like assholes -- everyone has one

The proof is the fact itself - the present reality - a small percent of the people already have the most of the wealth already and your food is not being given for free.

 

Is there a bigest proof than the exeriment in the real world? The present reality now is like the experiment already finished.

 

What bigger proof do you want? :)

 

Or maybe you don't believe the present reality. Do you receive your food for free, @sensei  ? If you do, then you are a very excetional execption from the majority lol :)

Or perhaps you write from some paralel universe in which the capitalists provide the food for free lol.

Actually, many people are given free food by capitalistic societies:

The fact that current capitalistic governments don't give free food to everyone (the US gives free food to about 50 Million people -- it's called food stamps and TANF), is not germane to your statement.

Furthermore, charities and food banks give even more FREE FOOD.

Also, community farms give free food to those that help with the cultivation.

ALL THIS HAPPENS IN THE US -- NOW.


Just because all capitalistic societies currently don't give free food to everyone does not mean that capitalistic societies CAN'T.

Prove they CAN'T.

Yes, the practice is the ultimate proof :) When you see a capitalist country, that provides for free the food of all of its citizens, come back and I will admit, that I am wrong. Until then, the practice shows, that this does not happen in capitalist society.

NO! 

 

YOU -- said capitalistic society couldn't provide free food.

 

It is incumbent (look it up) upon you to prove your assertion (make your argument or point).

 

 

If I stated "all red-headed women are nymphomaniacs" -- I would have to prove that statement.

 

You have to prove yours.

 

 

That is how things work.

Has not is not equivalent to cannot.

Your logic is faulty -- and I cannot have any more meaningful discourse with someone who does not understand the difference between.

1. The boy has not jumped over the hole. 2.The boy cannot jump over the hole.

If 1 then 2 does not follow logically.

Not entirely off topic, but Sweden outlawed amalgam filling for the toxicity it causes... this Swedish popstar made a song about the nightmares of getting amalgams I think (just a guess that it's related to the decision):

Prove the reason for that. Poove that it is not because such thing can't happen in a capitalistic society :)

 

There is enough foord for everyone, but is not reaching for free to everyone in your country.

 

Prove the reason are not the money combined with the behavior, which prefers to leave the food to rot rather than spreading it for free.

:)

 

Your turn now. Disprove the problem are not the money and find the glitch in the capitalistic system, that prevents the food to be for free :)

Well, it's not actually proof, but...

 

Most capitalistic countries provide some sort of free health care to everyone -- it comes with the service -- and is paid for by taxes.

 

There is no actual difference between free food and free health care when you look at it from a resource perspective.

 

If you want to use current state as an example then (which isn't a true logical proof, only weak supporting evidence);

 

Because most capitalistic countries provide free health-care to everyone, they can also provide free food.  Robots and AI will make both agriculture and medicine less expensive and more efficient for governments to provide to their citizens. (they already have -- there are completely automated harvesters, oh and the roomba -- dumb AI vacuum cleaner).

 

There you go.

I don't know if you believe yourself for all of the nonsences, that you are writting, or you are playing some game of yours while writting, but whatever it is, I started to go tired, ad your foolishment started to rise my blood preasure. It is obvious, that either your eyes can't be opened, or independently of everything you prefer to be killed after the robots take your money first. And maybe this is what has to happen. Since you don't mind being killed, let them kill you at a will, on the way they decide the best. I am on a small vacation, few days have left from it, and I plan to take the rest of it having a pleasent time, and without getting high preassure. Best wishes!

In the US that's what we call "taking your ball and going home".

 

It means when you can't get your way, instead of continuing to play -- you take your ball and go home, so nobody gets to play.

I didn't want to return to that topic, but since you keep pushing me in, alright.

 

your last argument for the free medical care in capitalistic countries is not true. The qualitive health care in the capitalistic countries is not free, and is becomming less and less acessible in the time.

Completely untrue:

In the US many States provide completely free health care for all children that are not otherwise covered by Medicaid or a Parent.

In Europe (still capitalist) there is free health care for everyone that isn't otherwise covered under an employer or private plan

As far as I know, in the US the health care is so free, that ne visit to the emergency department is at arround 400 dollars, and the americans are so happy for having the free medical care, that they wonder where to run away for medical tourism. 

 

Don't be fooled that you will get an on-time and qualitive medical care absolutely for free in Europe.
