A warning from Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Stephen Hawking

Tax robots? Really, Bill? Universal basic income? Really Elon? These are the great minds of our generation yet, they, and Warren Buffett as well, will only concede that we have to do something for displaced workers (now sitting at approximately 45% of workers nationally). If you automate society without giving society some alternative work source, you have the problem that exists in Chicago right now: Huge numbers of murders, all because unemployed people have nothing to do. I would strongly suggest we start thinking very seriously about what humans are going to be doing besides sitting around getting handouts. And don’t think these engineering geniuses haven’t thought about what happens when people revolt. War against the robots (probably vice versa) very possible. Get ready for “human culling, folks.” You may be having kids for nothing.
