G’day, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO!
Every day hundreds of Australians lose their jobs and every year from now on Automation and Artificial Intelligence aka Robots, drones, driverless cars and Online Diagnosis of most everything will swallow up thousands if not millions of jobs people do now.
Soon we will shop online for everything and in a matter of hours it will be delivered to our doorstep by drones etc and there will no need to leave our homes for anything. If and when we feel unwell “Doctor Big Brother” will diagnose and prescribe medicines etc that will be delivered to us by drones.
There will be many who will profit from deliveries to our door with driverless cars and trucks and driveless taxis. Uber and other people who now drive cars, truck and Courier delivery drivers will be become a major percentage of dole recipients and the social graces we have and share will be lost and our lives will become isolated in our homes.
The cost to Governments of dole payments will become insurmountable and the National Debt crippling with no alternate jobs for the millions of us made redundant by Automation and Artificial Intelligence.
WHAT THEN IS THE ANSWER- do we go blindly along with it in the name of “Progress” and blissfully ignore our fate of loss of millions of jobs or do we follow a different course – BUT WHAT COURSE?
In other countries Governments legislate that all ‘ Driverless Cars must have a steering wheel and be fitted with brakes!” There are many legal and other problems in the event of traffic accidents involving driverless cars eg. Who is to blame, the makers of computers that fail, the owner of the vehicle, the maker of the vehicle – Who?
This is a problem that will escalate with every passing day, month and year along with the rapidly growing numbers of unemployed Australian breadwinners!
I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO NOW! I have to formulate policies for my party “Australia New Era Party” that will meet the demands of a future with driverless cars, trucks and Drones along with Artificial Intelligence NOW! To ignore the future is to drift along and be swallowed by it.
Please post me your thoughts on what you think we should do to survive in a future without jobs to support our families in the future.
THIS WILL AFFECT YOU AND YOU FAMILY IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE! Cheers Ray.
