I hear the future is going to be bad. Better setup a scheme to steal money from the people who earn it, just in case.
Who exactly do you mean with "the people who earn it"? The owner of a company that employs robots in their manufacturing? That company's shareholders? Its CEO's, CFO's etc that decide where to direct resources?
If so: what exactly did they do to produce useful output? Build those robots? No, some external manufacturer did that. Program & and repair them? No, some hired-in technicians do that. Put in the raw materials those robots work on? No, external supplier of said materials did that. Check end products as they ship? No, factory worker or also automated. And/or end user of said product does the checking... :-) Shipping itself then? No, external distributor does that.
The people that 'run the show' aren't doing the work themselves, only tell others how they want it done. If you look at most products from raw material to end user, few people even touch it anymore. But for the people who do, who profits the most from that? No, not farmer or producer of the raw materials. Or the truck driver. Nor the factory worker. It's middlemen at the top & their associates (who already have a lot of capital to begin with) that take the bulk of the proceeds.
This happens because our economic & political systems are set up to keep it that way. Which imho is the real problem that could use a fix. But I feel I'm not the only one there... As wealth inequality grows, that fix will come. If not in a peaceful manner, then in a violent manner. Or anything in between.
Bottom line: automation isn't a threat, it's a good thing. It makes that we can have the same things using less people-effort. But the fruits of that automation should somehow be more equally distributed across people.
And perhaps we should re-evaluate our methods to determine how useful / valuable people are to society as a whole. In my personal opinion: capitalism had a good run, but ain't quite it. There's no reason for a CEO to make 100x the salary of a factory worker. Given the current state of technology, there's ZERO reason for anyone on this planet to starve on the street.
