RE: Pushed out of the average society

in OCD11 months ago

Well in my days we had switchboard operators, no TVs and nothing much else compared to today. The banker, mayor and undertaker were the most important people in townn.
So yeah, we have seen many changes and yet we have always survived.

What's happening in the banks recently are scary, as most of them are closing down branches and going "online". Thousands have lost their jobs.
Airlines are "slimming" down their staff counts and machines will handle the bookings and arrivals. All under the banners of "cost savings" and "progress"
Pilots will also soon be a thing of the past.
I think that this is just a forerunner of what we can expect in the future. Technology erasing the need for manual workers.

This Covid thing has also taught millions that they can work from home. So soon it will be a goodbye to offices, expected rentals, and a host of other services.
We are slowly being herded into a technical and automated era.

A cold water fish doesn't like warm waters, but in case of a change it will adapt.

Just so can we, but you are right, as it will be painful, especially with the job losses and the demands will be great.

For skilled workers where there is codeable routines. Real manual workers will be the last to go as building an AI and robot to crawl under the sink to unclog an S-bend won't be the first area of focus.

Yes. And we seem to be more than willing to shoot down the run. Convenience.

We definitely can adapt and survive, it just means that the way of life we have organised, including how the economy works and distributes will change. Even now, a lot of the drive of wealth to the top has come about through automation and AI - with the most lucrative companies having no products, but AI that collects, categorizes and distributes data.

I see a time coming that there will be no more S traps my friend.

Convenience. The less said the better.

Exactly and the problem lies in the little that will be distributed to the masses.
So it is unlikely for that to change soon. Unless of course some good brains can plot alternatives.

I see a time coming that there will be no more S traps my friend.

We will just be eating slop straight from troughs.

What I meant regarding S traps, is that they have developed a new tubular, stainless steel trap for water drainages. Very advanced, as it has an end screw off cap and a round filter inside.
In case of blockages one simply has to unscrew the end cap by hand and clean the filter.
