Quote:A new report out of Oxford has found that the next 20 years will see 45% of America's workforce replaced by computerized automation.

'The authors believe this takeover will happen in two stages. First, computers will start replacing people in especially vulnerable fields like transportation/logistics, production labor, and administrative support.

Jobs in services, sales, and construction may also be lost in this first stage. Then, the rate of replacement will slow down due to bottlenecks in harder-to-automate fields such engineering. This "technological plateau" will be followed by a second wave of computerization, dependent upon the development of good artificial intelligence. This could next put jobs in management, science and engineering, and the arts at risk.' 45% is a big number.

Politicians have been yelling themselves hoarse over the jobs issue in this country for the past few years, and the current situation isn't anywhere near as bad. At what point will we start seeing legislation forbidding the automation of certain industries?

As if America needs more bad economic news? Who will be employed ten years from now?

I remember this was a prediction when I was a kid. But I'm also supposed to be wearing silver suits and have a flying car according to that. gaah.giftime.gif

Thanks for that vid! Unbelievable stuff is becoming reality.
We may become obsolete soon.

Tptb are the royal bloodline elites...

Our fallen world leaders past and present...

Just about ready to unleash their world wide holocaust?!

The brutal annihilation of around 90% of the undesirable elements of our over grown over bloated society?!

Diabolically reduced from about 7,000,000,000 too close to the truth people?!

Down to around 500,000,000 dumbed down drugged up and much more easier to control human sheeple?!

I wonder why I no longer hear those ominous rumblings of unknown origins that I heard for so long just about every day and night?!

Have the militaristic nazi emulating elites completed their sinister subterranean death camps?!

Because the back stabbing two faced powers that be no longer build their death camps upon the surface?!
