Will Automation DESTROY Or CREATE Jobs? – The Self Driving Revolution!

Josh Sigurdson reports on a recent phenomenon that has been taking the world by surprise. Self-driving cars. A couple years ago when we mentioned self driving cars to those of the older generation, they simply wouldn’t believe us! In fact, even showing them videos of the self driving cars lead to claims of CGI! Well, technology moves quickly and hopefully so does humanity.
Looking back over the past century, technology has destroyed a lot of forms of employment, but overall has lead to more newer forms of employment. What’s more lucrative… Building buggies for horses? Or massive factories building cars, sprouting up entire cities in their back yard?
Around 50% of jobs that exist today could not have even been thought of 20 years ago.
People are overall healthier, safer and life is more convenient. Though there is a cost if individuals do not build on the free market from a competitive basis, giving individuals the demand of their currency.
People are afraid of the future, but there is simply no way to avoid it. People are falling to their knees, allowing the state to produce the most coercive technological, technocratic advances rather than innovating the market themselves. This is a massive problem.
So no, automation doesn’t necessarily destroy jobs. It destroys industries and replaces them with greater industries on the free market if individuals are paying attention. As McDonalds can afford to raise the minimum wage, smaller businesses cannot. The big monopolies win. But even they are automating with self serve machines. Well if we build on this momentum, we can head in the right direction, replacing the heavy labor or useless jobs with greater jobs with more prosperity for the individual.
As self driving cars roll out, productivity will rise and costs will fall as history has told us.
Self driving cars have had a bad wrap this past year. Tesla self driving cars crashing has lead to a lot of panic about the technology. However, statistically, people driving cars are one of the most dangerous ways to travel in the world. The number of crashes per capita versus self driving cars is like black and white. A computer can make split second choices that humans aren’t as likely to be able to make. Now of course, technology is only as good as the programmer which certainly should be noted.

Remember when people said the internet was just a trend and that it could destroy jobs? That was funny…

The future is coming. It’s up to us to decide if we want it to take the decentralized route or fall to the hands of the state.

Stay tuned for more from WAM!

    The point is that the goverent is at the heart of this. With self driving cars come smart cities and the electronic gulag the end of freedom of movement. Anarchist? You are fucking naive.

    Love automation. It will save lives. We’re going to be robots anyway – the hive mentality. We don’t have to be run on money, we could be human, share and enjoy life. But there’s always those who want everything and spoil it for the rest of us.

    advanced automation/AI will at first create jobs for those who have training. Eventually, those jobs will go to AI and put the human race out of work.

    The answer is simple, automation within a free market always creates jobs, but automation in a government controlled market always destroys jobs.

    You need the free market to keep the balance right between automation and jobs.

    Automation will and is destroying jobs all ready, it’s also increasing cyber theft and hacking! Even automation can be hacked for murder, and the taking over or shutting down at the push of a few buttons on a keyboard! Automation, also gets rid of human interaction! Refuse to use automation, demand to talk and do business with people, even on the phone! Automation can be good for some things, mainly toys, but automation also will not work without input of your personal information, age, address, phone no. Credit card or bank card, no privacy, everything you purchase, where you go everyday, where and what time you shop and go to the Jim, your work sheduals, your days off, where and when and how much gas you buy, gps where you are at anytime ! You could be tracked by a new type of criminal, cyber criminals, your information is available by every bank, credit union, corporation, governments, absolutely everything you are cyber naked, they can make your phone take pictures any time they like to put into facial recognition! Tell me you have never heard your phone or tablet make a picture snap noise, and you thought you must have done it by accident, or found pictures that are black or blurry in your phone you don’t know how they got there or don’t remember taking,?

    There is no Free Market. Another myth. It is a false fantasy. Markets are highly regulated and manipulated like most everything else. That article has false stats. 10% poverty worldwide? Really? More baloney and mis-information. More people in America for instance are living out of cars and unable to afford high rents. And look at the junk gig jobs with no benefits. Massive debt. Robotics will mostly be used for weaponry and to kill people and a little bit of it will be utilized to kill jobs and make tremendous profits for gigantic corporations. Unless a world war spoils everything.

    Trumpty Dumpty imposed tariffs to bring jobs back to Amerika. All jobs that come back to Amerika will be done my robots. They crashed the oil industry to get rid of the humans. Now that oil has recovered, the oil industry jobs are automated. They wiped out the middle class and they now are targeting the low-income, your job will be automated and eliminated. Welcome to the NWO.
