Productivity is literally the ability to produce. The people who produce are the people that build the productive capacity (own productive systems, factories, land, mines, farms, whatever).
Automation increases the productivity of the people who own the productive assets, not of people who are not the owners. The owner is the one whose productivity grows, not somebody who has nothing to do with the productive asset in the first place.
The entire point of running a business is to be productive enough to stop being dependent for other productive people for survival. The most desirable case is to achieve full self reliance.
Full self reliance = full independence from every single person out there.
Full independence from the people, full independence from the systems that are not under your own private control.
Full Self Reliance = Full Independence = FREEDOM. Freedom from people and from systems, freedom from the desires of the collective, freedom from anybody who has an opinion.
That's the point, so when somebody aiming at achieving full independence, full self reliance and full freedom be forced to give up that freedom in the name of 'morality' the only correct response is to work harder towards Full Freedom, which includes Complete Self Protection.
Full reliance = full independence = full freedom = complete self protection.
Complete self protection from the opinions, from the desires, from the collective will of the masses. That is the goal. In the interim using charity and government manipulation is an acceptable solution to the problem of the collective force that can be used to take away the tools, assets and the productive output of the productive individual.
In reality everybody should be aiming towards the same thing, being fully self reliant, fully independent, fully free and completely self protected. That's a good goal, try and do it for yourself.
