Well it could be that Google is actively developing robots, so there's that. And if nobody around you is talking about automation/robots, they are the idiots getting replaced by it.
Environmental compliance becomes a huge issue too. Also power generation and clean water costs.
Not near as long as he makes out. If robots wanted to take the mass of us out in a suicide attack they'd just fry the electronically controlled power grid. Yes, they'd be screwed, but so would we. Without power, we all die in our city deserts. There is not enough food and water in a large city. It requires trucks to drive food there daily, which requires pumped gas.
We always seemed to be able to find more jobs because we replaced physical labor with mechanical labor, it's different this time. Now we are replacing intelligence. At some point it becomes cheaper to build a new robot to do a job then train a person to do it. Next, before the last 100 years we didn't have an audio global communications network, and the last 40-30 years a massively connected global digital network that made redundant a huge number of people. Productivity cannot stretch to infinity. At some point we have to either pay people to do nothing, or kill off a bunch of people.
When the kill bots come and harvest your body for its mineral content.
Up till this point the capitalist needed the labor, it was still worthwhile somewhere. At what point does keeping a bunch of humans around make sense when you could kill off the masses and live in ultra-luxury?
The problem is far too many business miss just that. Instead they fight to the death over taxes, wages, and environmental protection that would help keep there business around in the future.
Have you even looked at population growth expectations in the US? We don't hit 400 million till after 2060. At current growth rates we may never hit one billion. First world countries have problems with negative population growth.
You for got to add...
Could it be that we're developing robots to replace our jobs as quickly as possible, possibly leading to huge unemployment (which would fit nicely before your number 3).
I know you're being funny, but the NSA does have a reason to get rid of all hardware too.
In theory a cable could be used as an antenna, they probably have some working group at the NSA that does just that, hell they probably think Snowden stole the document about it.
>Snowden never approached any of multiple Inspectors General, supervisors, or Congressional oversight committee members about his concerns.
Good idea too. Everyone else who did (that we know of) was fired and investigated. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Andrews_Drake
>The NSA is only targeting the communications, as opposed to metadata, of less than 60 Americans. Targeting the actual communications of Americans, rather than metadata, requires a probable cause finding and a specific court order.
We don't believe you, and quit targeting my metadata without a warrant.
Anyone who says "I need the government to turn down the volume" to this issue needs to be publicly slapped up and down the main street in their town.
You'd be the first asshole to call the cops if I played a loud radio in front of your house.

If the individual never breeds, or by existing causes others to breed successfully, then the genetic the mutation is not successful.
In humans it is harder to measure the success of the genetic mutations alone, because of the large effect society determines human success.
>cloud prices - fixed, fixed fixed lol
Do you even know what you're talking about? Cloud prices, such as AWS have been dropping year by year.
