FK – I don’t think it’s an ‘experiment.’ They knew exactly what the outcome of the welfare state would be. They wanted inter-generational morons that could be counted on as constituents and a failed culture they could constantly point to and offer ‘change’ and ‘help’ and ‘reform,’ kinda like the drug war or the war on terror. Oh yeah, they called it ‘the war on poverty.’
Now they can all go get free twinkies and enough money for shoes but their dignity, if they ever had any, has been sold to the state. If everyone’s waiting on a govt. check then they’ll know that stepping out of line might endanger their ‘basic income.’ But then considering how most corporations treat their workers(associates, not employees) millions will happily line up for a basic existence they no longer have to waste their time and health in exchange for.
Someone once was alleged to have said, “The poor you shall always have with you,” in a matter-of-fact enough way that it’s likely true.
From what I’ve read it’ll be decades before fully automated big trucks are a reality. It would take a complete re-do of the interstate system with special lanes for the truck trains or forcing everyone into fully automated cars so that the four-wheelers aren’t driving 10-20 mph faster than the robot trucks. Several states tried the split speed limit thing for a while and the smart ones ended it.
The future isn’t ‘terminator’ ran by man-made machines it’s man-controlled machines controlling lesser men. Or maybe we’re already there and just haven’t noticed yet.
We must ban this crap before it even gets off the ground. We can do it. Yes we can.
Just like they know what the result of un-controlled immigration will be:
FK – Europe, like America, needs a granite gallows in front of every govt. building to execute those responsible for the policies that makes this crap possible/happen.
They all seem to be dressed pretty well. Are they getting govt. checks or are they being paid to riot?
What will the robots think of that?:
FK – The meaning and purpose of life is to forward human liberty. But we are still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age.
Or we can have a world of fences:
FK – ‘Extreme views’ usually means those who’re capable of thinking for themselves and therefore might question orders.
Looks to me like they’ve erected a new iron curtain, facing the other way.
What monsters do we create to save ourselves?
