If the whole workforce could be automated, no one would have to work. This means, that we enter a state of post-scarcity, which enables everyone to freely access everything and live a life without having to work, as everything would be common ownership. States in the way we known today wouldn't really be necessary, due to eliminating scarcity and thus wealth discrepancy. However, as things still have to be agreed upon on a group level, enabled by advances in communication technology, we could implement a system of direct democracy, where political affairs like laws, the election of police officers, firefighters etc. are decided by every citizen on either the municipal or federal level.

leiu6

Well I don’t think direct democracy is a good idea. It would lead to tyranny of the majority. Also, I think it is presumptive to assume that the only cause of societal ills, and thus requiring need for government, is money.

The future we hope for, versus the future we'll get. The fact that working is something we need to do doesn't mean the rich don't enjoy seeing us do it.

If you're not working to make them richer, you're a waste of resources in their eyes. When all worth is monetary, all people become a number. Rich people don't see a health bar over the heads of the masses, they see a money bar. They don't care how long we live, or if we live at all, just how we rate in the only measure they value.

Khanthulhu

Depends on how it's implemented of course.

We're so much more efficient than we were 50 years ago and people assumed these gains would allow us to work fewer hours, take more vacations, etc.

Turns out that the amount of work we have expands to fill how much time we have.

It took unions to get us a forty hour work week and it will probably take is something similar to get our workers rights in line with the rest of the developed world.

My biggest concern is with how resources are spread. We don't want to tax robots yet, because we want to incentivize people building them, but we'll definitely want to somehow tax the wealth enough to avoid another guilded age (which we're already kind of in but automation can make it much worse)

Lets say you're a billionaire. If all of the worlds population disappeared, your struggle would not be wealth generation, it would be survival. Even the billionaires rely on common people to provide food and services that they use. If you were able to replace all other humans with machines, you no longer need money at all. You just need the ability to keep the machines going. We're around 40-100 years away from machines that have human intelligence that can self replicate, but it's hard to estimate as technology advances at an exponential level. Your family could then populate the earth as you see fit, without ever working a day in their lives beyond what they want to do.

Frankly, I expect the wealthiest people in the world to use AI to do exactly this. I don't know if regular people will be starved to death or executed. I just hope I'm not around.

I guess machine learning doesn't really count... or teaching a computer to generate code on its own based on a set of rules... Sure, it has problems and a ton of edge cases, but the relative intelligence level of machines right now is at what, a mouse? That's why I said 40-100 years. When you think about how much progress has already been made in just the last 10-20, it doesn't seem so unrealistic to me. But whatever, if talking about it is beneath you, then you can keep your secrets.

Amazon doesnt have close to a monopoly on internet retail let alone all the brick-and-mortar retail.

ObeseMoreece

49% market share in American Internet retail. Enough of a share to essentially control the market as they see fit.

Monopoly power doesn't necessarily mean they own almost all of the market share, but they can own enough to manipulate it and destroy competition.

squeeber_

No, that’s precisely what monopoly power means - they own all of the market.

Here’s how we tell if Amazon is a monopoly. List all of the e-commerce platforms. If you get to 2 or more: it’s not a monopoly.

ObeseMoreece

You're describing a dictionary definition Monopoly.

Standard oil didn't own literally all oil companies in the USA but they got broken up.

Microsoft wasn't the sole provider of operating system software but still lost its antitrust case (though it didn't get broken up).

Even if a company doesn't fall under the dictionary definition of a monopoly, it can still weild huge amounts of influence over its market, making it very difficult for any new competition to arise.

squeeber_
1
3 weeks ago

I appreciate your well thought out and concise response and for clarifying your point of view. I was a bit abrasive and sarcastic in my approach but I was mostly joking.

I happen to agree with you about companies being able to wield huge amounts of influence being unhealthy for a well functioning capitalistic marketplace. Monopoly is obviously not the only metric for a company being too strong being problematic.

However I disagree on two fronts. One: I think the classification of monopoly should be used in a strict sense. Even if we don’t hold the old school, dictionary definition of a single business with no competitors. One of the key elements to considering someone to hold a monopoly should be an insanely high barrier of entry. And I don’t think that’s true here yet.

Which brings me to my next point I disagree on which is the fact that Amazon fits this criteria.

Just because a lot of people selectively use something doesn't constitute a monopoly. Quite the contrary actually. I think it’s an indicator of a strong brand and a listening to the market and offering products accordingly.

Their brand is extraordinarily strong. And I think we should totally keep an eye on it with a concern that their power or influence could become problematic. But just 15 years ago Myspace was absolutely dominating the social media market and nobody cared about Facebook or saw that changing. It only took 5 years for that to completely flip and nobody to care about Myspace.

Remember next time you're working at shit job and you know you have no skills: yes, you should have tried harder in school. Yes, you should have done something. It's never too late but we both know you aren't gonna do fuck all about it. I see so many people with the logic I had when I bought a cool car in my teens to try to get chicks. "I know, if I just sit in this car, then chicks will throw themselves at me and I'll get laid all the time." That is how I see the thousands of people I've worked with at the shitty jobs I made sure to move on from. "If I just sit here and do absolutely nothing, someone will come by and offer me a huge raise in a totally different field!"

Like I'm a socialist, but I kinda hate these memes. Sure, we need better min wages and stuff, but Amazon employees make $15 an hour while Wal Mart employs something like a million people a a large fraction of those are on food stamps because Walmart pays them trash.

Bezos at least donates billions to charity, the Walton family? The lobby to turn America in the dystopian future that this meme describes. McDonald's, Walmart, etc. Have been doing way worse things than Amazon for decades, but people somehow forget that
