Efficiencies allow reduced employment, but where do those people go ?
The corporations don't care.
It could be more people spending time improving society and general quality of life, arts, humanities, environment.
Superfluous people go on the scrap heap.

Comment Wrong decision Mercedes (Score 1) 367

The driver and passengers are protected by chassis and safety devices, the pedestrian is fully exposed.
Wrong decision Mercedes,
crash the car, you can buy another,
the occupants will probably be safe,
save the pedestrian
Does this make the programmer responsible for the pedestrians death?
