Why the US finance rebellions in my country, help to overthrow the democratically elected president, bribes all politicians to take the newly discovered "pre-sal" petroleum to them while the Brazilian people gets screwed?

If we Brazilians had nuclear weapons none of that I described would have happened. Now you understand why countries spend in nuclear weapons?

When all or most jobs disappear It will be critical the existence of a UBI. Unless you know a way to literally kill all who will be jobless (and notice that these people will not go down without a fight). I think it's better to implement a UBI than try to kill 90% of humanity, do you think?

On the relevance of the theme for Slashdot, I honestly believe it is really important when it involves the employment of all who read it. You will not be able to read technology news if you don't have a job or if you are trying to escape the hunters-killers of the 1%.

Way, way more difficult because of the usual lunatics (religious, psychopaths in government offices, third world dictators, lawyers, etc). Or in other words, it is much more difficult because your success depends on the cooperation of a lot of people who do not want to cooperate with you.
