But let's have a look at government in more detail;

-Most US citizens (in today's climate and understanding) would not vote for a government who will increase unemployment
-The highest cost on most US big business budgets is the salary component (within the country of origin - rather than the use of slave labour from other countries)
-As a result US big business is moving towards automation and as a consequence an increase in unemployment of the people within the country of origin

Thus, the society gets something they would not vote for, and the reason this is so, is Government is ineffectual relative to big business. If the Government was effective they would do something to solve this issue.

If you gave this issue to a three year old, with some slight mental retardation and a pick axe lodged through their cerebral cortex, after a time of thinking on the problem (0.3 nano-seconds), the child would come up with a better solution to solve the problem than the government.

Given that the government's usual solution to this issue is to pander to the big business...
What solution is there? Outlaw technology? Everyone go Amish? 😁
