AOC Excited about Humans Going on the Scrap Heap By Chris Knight
Leading the new wave of elected socialist, if not outright communists, is Hispanic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
“Appearing at the SXSW conference Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said people should be excited by the prospect of robots taking their jobs because it will afford them more time to pursue their creative passions. Ocasio-Cortez speculated fears over automation stem from a lack of financial safety net and economic uncertainty. “We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work,” the self-avowed democrat-socialist said, according to Fast Company. “We should not feel nervous about the tollbooth collector not having to collect tolls. We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited about it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die.”
The freshman congresswoman floated a proposal by billionaire and Microsoft founder Bill Gates to tax robots at 90 percent to make up workers’ lost income from automation. “Whether it’s a tax rate, whether it’s distributing wealth that’s created by automation – if we approach solutions to our systems and start entertaining ideas like that, then we should be excited about automation because of what it could potentially mean,” she said.”
Now in principle, if social credit existed as the national system, I would not fear this prospect of the rise of the machines. However, we have seen how the elites are quite willing to replace workers with migrants and simply throw national workers on the scrap heap. Trump is gearing up to do this now in a great act of betrayal of those who voted for him. Thus, nothing will be done to support displaced workers, who really will be left to die, or become radicalised. So, maybe this is the way it has to go. One thing is clear; we simply cannot keep going down the same road the elites have planted us on. On that, we die.
