Idiots With Clipboards

They're too smart to deliver pizza, too dumb to think for themselves. Welcome the the Tyranny of Twits. And the occasional Clockwork Orange award.

Idiots with bad ideas

A recent article suggests that automation will free people for “creative pursuits”.  Guess the phrase “starving artist” has dropped out of the lexicon.  Artists are already more likely to starve than prosper.  Adding hordes of wannabees to the equation won’t improve the odds.

They don’t get it.  Most people don’t get it.  Automation is going to create a big hole in society by killing the jobs that kept the middling grade people from having to grow their own food just to survive.  These aren’t the middle class.  They’re the mediocre.  But they can read, and they can vote.  Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
