Comment Re:Threshold (Score 1) 409

What is the unemployment threshold going to be? When unemployment caused by automation, robotics, etc reaches 10%? 15%... 20%..?

In the coming decades more and more people worldwide will become unemployable, and they will have nothing to do or any way to make a living?

How are governments and communities going to respond?

They will respond, out of perceived necessity, with further militarization of the police and surveillance of the activities of the unemployed. The revolution will be drone-struck before it can strike the first blow.
