So, what was the feminist revolution all for, when women workers are going to be the ones hit hardest by the robot revolution?
“Women in Britain are much more likely than men to be working in jobs that are threatened by the advance of technology, the country’s statistics office said on Monday. Women held more than 70 percent of the 1.5 million jobs believed to be at high risk of automation, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said. The three occupations with the highest probability of automation were waiters, shelf-fillers and elementary sales roles, the ONS said. But well-educated women were more at risk than men too.”
Now, to answer my own question, the revolution of the 1960s was not about personal liberation, as much as the up-front lies said that it was, and mainly about destroying the basis of traditional society in the manic drive to create a global consumer culture. That the elites have done, but whether it can be sustained or not is the big question. My bet is that it will crumble as all crazy dreams of world domination have in the past.
