Whether or not this current revolution creates enough new jobs of new types to offset the loss of old jobs of the old types, the net trend and the entire point of developing technology is labor saving: we are, as a culture (the global human culture, not America specifically), actively trying to eliminate the need for people to do work. Either because we don't want to work ourselves, or we don't want to have to pay someone else to work; there is a constant universal and undying pressure to find ways to have people doing less work.
On the whole, this is a good thing. A world where nobody has to work would be great! The problem is that we have, and for most of human history always have had, a division in our society, between those who have more stuff than they need to get by, and those who don't have enough to get by, which allows the former group to not work, at the expense of making the latter group work more, in exchange for the former group providing the latter group with the material goods they need to get by.
It is only in the presence of that division between non-working owners and non-owning workers that the elimination of work is a problem, because it makes the working class entirely unnecessary to the owning class who hold all the power. If instead everyone was an owner and a worker, then the elimination of work would leave us with an eventual society where everyone is an owner and not a worker. Well, we will get that eventually one way or another, but the question is whether we get there by eliminating the workers and leaving only the owners (bad), or if we just eliminate working for everyone and leave everyone just owning (good).
So the way around the inevitable (if not looming) elimination of an entire class of people is to eliminate that class division. To make everyone a member of the owning class. Then we can all be happy to eliminate all the jobs we can. This of course is not a new idea, but I think the way it's been approached in the past has been entirely wrong. To bring people into the owning class does not require forcibly taking things from the existing owners and giving them to the workers for free. It should be happening naturally and voluntarily. Look at the arrangement between owners and workers again: the owners trade their capital for the labor of the workers. So labor flows from the workers to the owners, and capital flows from the owners to the workers. So obviously the workers gradually accrue capital and the owners gradually lose capital until the workers and owners are equally owners, and now the owners have to start working themselves since they've no capital trade advantage left. Right?
That clearly doesn't happen, which means that there must be some kind of mechanism which is operating counter to the flow of capital from the owners to the workers, keeping the workers from accruing capital and the owners from losing it. I propose that the underlying mechanism here is rent, including rent on money otherwise known as interest. In a rental arrangement, someone with capital lets someone else temporarily use that capital in exchange for a permanent payment, and then gets their capital back at the end. So the person with enough capital that they can lend it out gains more capital (the money paid to them) at the expense of someone who doesn't have enough capital and needs to borrow it (the thing they rented). The people who need to borrow capital are of course precisely the people who need to trade their labor for the money they need to pay that rent, and the people with enough capital to lend it out are of course precisely the people who have enough that they don't need to labor at all. So rent and interest creates exactly the kind of backward flow from those without enough (the workers) to those with more than enough (the owners) that counteracts what would otherwise be the natural flow of capital in the other direction.
All we need to do is eliminate rent (including interest) and the class divisions will naturally disappear. And when the class divisions disappear, the elimination of work ceases to be a problem and becomes a blessing instead.
