Automation Apocalypse

Robots are coming

an era of immense technological change is upon us, ever advancing at a quickening pace it revolutionizes everything within its grasp. From the AI systems which will soon combine to control every aspect of your home, to self driving cars, to even the simplest of commodities such as self serving checkouts at supermarkets, to even the virtual credit boom and the slow replacement of cash. Through this we now live in a world which is becoming increasingly intertwined with computer technology and robotic systems, whether they be virtual or physical, but for all the accolades, successes and milestones the most glorious gift which this brings to humanity, the crowning achievement of the technological revolution will be the systematic replacement of the working classes through insatiable automation of jobs.

This robotic replacement of working class occupations is something which must be resisted at all costs, for every step taken towards this goal is a disastrous defeat for the working man and the working woman. Whenever this occurs it is those unsung heroes who keep the economy going who suffer, for they are the ones who lose their jobs as a result. What happens when people lose their jobs? They lose absolutely everything! their livelihood, their home and even their family! worst of all the suffer a loss of dignity, pride and ultimately a sense of purpose and place.

Who is to blame for this? The capitalists of course! their greed blinds them and castrates them of any sympathy for the common people. The only thing they care about is their beloved profit margins which are nothing more than bars on a graph, lines on a chart or number in a spreadsheet. Good people shouldn’t suffer such a cruel fate because of greed and avarice.

It’s not just the capitalists either, for we too are to blame. The insatiable hunger of the consumer for cheaper and cheaper goods accelerates this policy in order to feed extravagant materialism in all its glory and all its horror.For we too are blinded by the process as long as the end result is desirable. A monstrous burden which we must carry for all time if we allow this to complete the irreversible process.

The faceless creation of the machine is coming and the age of the machine comes with it, so tell me are you going to stand as the apocalypse looms over as 19th century European powers tower over the defenseless natives to be conquered? or are you going to act upon it and resist while you still can? before its too late.
