Those who would accept public handouts for a little temporary private wealth deserve either handouts or private wealth.

Your ideas are very interesting and I have one question.  As you see the digitization of many jobs and tasks (as I agree is happening and will continue to happen) how do the people such as teachers and librarians whose jobs have been "digitized" support themselves?

It is not just teachers...it is most occupations....and we will need to restructure and retrain into higher brain functioning positions.

For 200 years, technology has been making humans more efficient and permitted most to work less than the generation before them.

This trend will continue at an accelerated pace going forward.  We will not need bankers, retail workers, postal workers and much more....

Right now 50,000,000 Americans get food stamps every month....as GPS farming drives even more efficiency, we will be able to produce a lot more food with less people.  The Sudan is capable of easily feeding ALL of Africa if it was developed and that was a goal.

There are a number of solutions to be addressed as we move forward.  However, this period in human history will be more convulsive than most because thoughout the ages, humans were the primary producers...it will be interesting to see how we adapt to rapid advancement as machines take over lower level functioning...like analyzing stocks.

Sempai (and BonyJames) --

     You know I love you Alstrymous but, "there is nothing UNMANNED about UNMANNED."

      Just as your President's unmanned, fully-digital Predator drones in Pakistan and Afghanistan require many hundreds of support people, your next-gen digital world requires the support of hundreds of millions/billions of people.

     Keep in mind that "digital" Oscar winner "Toy Story 3" grossed $500 million worldwide, but still required 3-4 $100K programming guys sitting in Emeryville, California to write a couple thousand lines of code simply to create a shadow on Woody's cowboy hat. The actual money made off Toy Story 3 ($1.5 billion) is from analog toys and clothing sold via brick-and-mortar retailers.

     Digital ain't cheap, unmanned, nor easy . . . there is no "answer or solution to all problems" (aka a digital panacea). And if there was real money to be made in GPS farming in the Sudan, Minnesota's own Cargill would be there with blaze orange on.

p.s. True Grit shoulda won something

[Rooster confronts the four outlaws across the field]
Ned Pepper: What's your intention? Do you think one on four is a dogfall?
Rooster Cogburn: I mean to kill you in one minute, Ned. Or see you hanged in Fort Smith at Judge Parker's convenience. Which'll it be?
Ned Pepper: I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man.
Rooster Cogburn: Fill your hands, you son of a bi*ch!

I didn't see the new version, but the old version was good.
