Manufacturing Future: Fewer Humans, More Robots

this, is pretty much what we have all known for quite a long time. as tech gets better, menial jobs become useless to humans because robots do it better.

yes, that is exactly what they are doing it. you can put lawyer speak up all you want but it doesnt change anything. people in the US are being stripped from doing legit business with other businesses on the basis of what exactly? that they dont like encryption?? that they dont like kim dotcom?? what legal reason would they have from getting in the middle and preventing legitimate business to take place???

i havent used them in probably 6 years now. I was selling diecast cars and someones order got held up at the border (canadian) so it arrived late. he put in a complain with paypal who took my money and added fees. once the die cast car arrived and he submitted the note to get it fixed on my side they did, but they still wanted their fees. and they would not cancel them eventhough I had done nothing wrong

so today I still "owe" paypal about 10-15 bucks, that they will never get out of me. they are a horrible company

that the banks are not to big to fail, and should have been allowed to. There is no reason what so ever that any government should get involved in peoples personal financial decisions. while kim dotcom might not be the best person in the world, there is no reason for this continued harassment

Communism is the seizure of capital by labor, followed in theory by a dictatorship of the proletariat which serves to organizes labor and resources "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need"

But isnt that what obama is doing with HC?? when it comes to "wealth redistribution" the only difference is hes just taking from the rich and middle class and giving to the poor and non americans
