I would like to start a discussion based on another topic I joined in on a few days ago, about technology... and political science.


so, what's your plan for when we have semi-autonomous robot "soldiers" and drones, robotics has quite possibly taken over most of the labor force and the federal government has not been held in check very well.

does that not seem to be where we are headed? how do you think this is all going to play out?

I am hoping for the best, consisting of reducing the powers of the federal government to some extent, being able to gather as many resources as we can from space, making them more abundant and hopefully increasing economic growth enough to allow us a basic income to go along with a highly skilled capitalist economy.

dunno if that's possible, but its what I am hoping for. I can see quite a few doomsday scenarios coming about instead.

how about you?

One of the few things I agree with Hillary on Citizens United is a travesty for the equal representation of the people.

To correct you it is without govt or too much govt. During the days of robber barons, the govt pretty much protected their fortunes and power, now they do the same.

To achieve peace among capitalists and the working class, govt needs to be minimal and functional, It needs to write laws pertaining to safety and consumer protection, rather than writing regs aimed to cripple certain competition in favor of political donors, or like the epa whos job has been so pointless in recent decades they have spent plenty on researching wether or not to ban bbq's
