they finally sold out.

You seem to be thinking that Trey Parker and Matt Stone had a cause. Or maybe that selling SP to HULU just to piss you off is somehow out of character for them. Haha. If a hooker offered them blowjobs for the rights to SP I wouldn't be surprised if they took the deal laughing.

Karl Marx saw this coming over 150 years ago

The final end result of mass mechanized production is that the available workers will far outnumber the available jobs, and this is the problem that communism was intended to solve.

Unfortunately, communism has earned a fatally bad reputation after being misused by so many dictators during the 20th century.

So instead of 1 person working 40 hrs a week, you have 5 people working 8 hrs a week either and everything costs 1/5 as much because it is made by robots.

The real danger is the government creating a privileged class of those who are allowed to use robots for production. It will start as a "protect the worker" campaign but it will end up like all the other privilege legislation. Another serious danger is increase in taxes and inflation (the money supply) occurring simultaneously with the automation progress and cancelling all the progress.
