While the point of this article is both interesting and amazing, it shows something that is very important. That is the failure to understand that the elimination through automation of jobs is death by starvation in a society without Universal Basic Income or equivalent.

We have allowed what once was a legitimate political organization to descend to the level of a brutal organized crime cult. Not all, but enough to cause a real threat to our society. Whether this is stupidity or the desire for evil the result can be exactly what was seen in Germany in the 1930s or under the Khmer Rouge in 1975-79 to give just two examples. Yes, it can happen here . . .
