So long as I wake up at home and the car is whole. Given your localisation your opinions are kind of mandated and totally legit, I shouldn't have started an ideological discussion with someone concerned by starvation, it's just bad taste.

What will we do when money becomes not needed? Right now our economy is based on humans working to receive money to buy what they need/want. When machines do work instead, how will humans get the money to get what they need?

From a historical point of view, in every such case of a "new machine making human labor obsolete" we have responded with either creating new jobs for said labor or increase the production by such an amount that human labor was needed along with machine labor. Can we keep doing either of those ad infinitum? I don't think so, but I still have trouble imagining a world where human labor is entirely unutilised.

I'd like to also propose a complementary question. Assuming humans do develop such technology that they can be replaced in their entirety by machines, will humans have the necessary recources to constract said machines in the quantities needed in order for human lador to be fully replaced by machine labor?

If the base mantra were not to do things we cannot undo, we'd sure have a lot of time to try. In the best case scenario human labor will allways remain relevant in the sense that we long to give our lives meaning.


Alas the base mantra is that so long as you can make a profit your actions are justified. Erst kommt das fressen, dann die Moral (basic self preservation precedes on moral considerations) The thing is I can't help but think that there is an enormous amount of effort shed to maintain the illusion of scarcity and the urgencies that come with it.

Don't sweat it dude. Is fine really you weren't that rude even, just somewhat unintelligible, also we are much better now. Well, until my first payment in fact but we are really much better, no thanks to any politician or party or side btw. Just old fashion hard honest work, the sad part is that it was just on the new release of DF which I have been waiting for so freaking much.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Planned obsolescence for us. We'll become useless but as a low grade lubricant source for our new machine overlords.
Oh thank god, a purpose at last.
So damn relatable.

That's not the worst of it. Not all lubricant is used for the same purposes. you don't want to know what the machine overlords plan to lube up with you

There's two kinds of performance reviews: the one you make they don't read, the one they make whilst they sharpen their daggers
Everyone sucks at everything. Until they don't. Not sucking is a product of time invested.

Yeah because they're machine overlords, it's going to be gears and stuff, not something fun!

If the base mantra were not to do things we cannot undo
we've already past this point long ago, there is no backing out of this modern industrialized world

These machine overlords are just those rich enouch to survive mass automation btw. If that has any impact on your decision.
