abuelos84 writes: With the release of the awaited, kickstarter-backed Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian (the heir of RPG legends such as Black Isle and Troika) have brought that special "Baldur's Gate" feeling to modern gaming. The game was extremely well received both by the press and the gaming community, achieving a 92 metacritic rating.

The geek/nerd/awe-seeker inside me loves the idea, but I don't know if we are (from a socio-economic pov) ready for mass-scale implementation of this kind of tech. (with this I mean technologies that automate some form of work)
Don't get me wrong, I really want us to be there, but we aren't.

Our current socioec. model doesn't cope well with abrupt changes in employment, we live in a survival race, a mostly well-mannered jungle law. There are lots of measures we could take to alleviate this but I don't see our beloved representatives caring much unless shtf, and we already know "s" never really "htf".

As per usual, science and technology don't give a flying fuck about all this nonsense and changes will come.

Oh well, you never know.

Uhm, Venezuela?
Like the country where the oposition was funded and coordinated from the US embassy?
Where they tried a coup, WHICH WAS RECOGNIZED AND PRAISED BY THE US like 5 minutes after they took (for a while) the presidential office?
Do we live in the same world?

Well, the US could have just not backed the sociopathic military that for example ruled my country for decades (Argentina) killing tens of thousands...
Or more in the new millenium, Venezuela, Honduras, etc....
I'm not saying the rest of the world is pure angelic blowjobs, the soviets did some awful stuff quite similar to what you did to us...
But that doesn't change the fact that your govt conspired with military groups to commit crimes against humanity. Over and over...

In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.
