And doesn't anyone ever suspect that if the Germans have all of those jobs and are working so hard, it is probably because so many other countries and places worldwide don't have those jobs and aren't working ? or does the math only work when counting profits ? or are the Germans the job hogs and work hogs working and having jobs in place of everyone else ? Or maybe they are so so much better than the rest of the world, as the rest of the world are all lazy turds, freeloaders, don't have the skill sets, don't "work hard" so they deserve to be in "bad shape"...

Jesus Christ what an idiotic dominating ideology this one of "hard work", "skill sets", "Innovation" this and that, you couldn't make this stuff up...

From:

"Old69 says that technology is destroying jobs, but the more I think about it, the more incorrect I believe he is. Technology has created niches and possibilities for exponentially more jobs than was possible without. "

What jobs, what activities ? everyone talks about "new jobs" in the abstract no one ever in years has ever said what exactly and concretely must be done, what task. And why ? Because there are no tasks to be done, it is just a useful excuse to keep people in line making them believe that there are oh so many "jobs" to be done. Which ? What ? Explain (real jobs and real tasks by the way...).

Please, we are all sick and tired of BS, fluff, services, goods from the "private sector", and all kinds of abstract sh*t! Give us something real, meaningful, concrete, real jobs (not vague skill sets) gives us the assembly line, please give us back the assembly line, make us work with our hands, let us build something, some real input -> manipulation -> output and not social BS, talents, and all kinds of selling yourself and marketing sh*t!

"You better get used to being bored, to not having anything to do anymore, to not having any goals anymore, to not achieving your "career", to not being equal to all the other turds anymore, to not thinking that you are a special little turd who "worked hard" to have more than Mrs Jones next door, who is a layabout, welfare queen, etc."

Does that read right ?

I wanted to say:

"You better get used to being bored, to never having anything to do anymore, to never having any goals anymore, to never achieving your "career" again, to not being better to all the other turds anymore, to stop thinking that you are a special little turd who "worked hard" to have more than Mrs Jones next door, who is a layabout, welfare queen, etc."


or

"You better get used to being bored, to having nothing to do forever from now on, to having NO goals forever from now on, to never having any kind of "career" again, to being exactly equal to all the other turds, hence never better than anyone else forever from now on, to stop thinking that you are a special little turd who "worked hard" to have more than Mrs Jones next door, who is a layabout, welfare queen, etc."

I know, I understand, it would be like "giving up", like "declaring defeat", a scott free pure FREE RIDE, HANDOUT, a FREE LUNCH just doesn't click with our stone age mental computer program. But most of all, most people would think "Now What ?", they wouldn't have "Anything to Do" (as if they are actually doing much anyways in most jobs today), they have been programmed (since the stone ages, but actually during the stone ages they just did "what was necessary", much smarter than us forcing ourselves to do a lot of make believe effort that leads to nothing, go figure) to always "Do Something", to always have a "Goal" a "Target", etc. Well, guess what ? The era of work labor, targets and goals are over forever, it will never come back again, it is no longer in the cards, just suck it up and get used to it, this is the "New Normal". The Technological Economy eliminates way more (real) jobs than it creates, just say it, admit it, don't hide the facts anymore.

We should really "Give Up", that is exactly what we would should do, "Declare Defeat", that is the right thing to do, don't worry, it's ok, there is nothing wrong with that, you will be ok, it is not a sin, god won't punish you. And in fact the best thing to do is to park thousands of trillions of new people that will be born (because we will really need them all to build our thousands of trillions of skyscrapers, rockets and cadillacs) in front of TVs and let them watch TV for 24 hours a day for trillions of years. That is perfection achieved, an automatic life, all problems solved, you have achieved all, you can't get much better, it can never get much better than this. Of course all the environmentalist and greenies and alternative lifestyle thugs are against TV, they are still fighting that same battle since the 1950s, go figure, what c*cks! But TV is the solution not the problem.

You better get used to being bored, to not having anything to do anymore, to not having any goals anymore, to not achieving your "career", to not being equal to all the other turds anymore, to not thinking that you are a special little turd who "worked hard" to have more than Mrs Jones next door, who is a layabout, welfare queen, etc.

And yet, when real projects and real goals, real targets and real large scale efforts are proposed, in short REAL WORK FOR REAL ACHIEVEMENTS, everyone runs away, everyone criticizes them, everyone calls them socialism and bad and killing nature and Resources are Running Out and we can't do them, the crappy democratic process of everyone against everyone would block all the projects (that is why we would need an Iron Fist Communist Dictatorship) etc. But at the same time, they all chant and think that they will be "their own little bosses", they will work hard "to achieve their own little puny goals" against others, to compare themselves against others instead of taking on the real big dog which is nature and real large scale projects that really mean something and really are achieving.

Obama should declare:

"FROM NOW ON, WE WILL GIVE OUT FREE LUNCHES, FREE RIDES TO ALL, SCOTT FREE HANDOUTS, WE WILL GIVE OUT FREE SALARIES OF 800 DOLLARS A MONTH TO ALL, AND A CHEAP RENT OF 200 DOLLARS A MONTH FOR ALL, AND ALSO START HUGE LARGE SCALE PUBLIC PRIVATE PROJECTS LIKE HIGH SPEED TRAINS ALL ACROSS THE USA, ROCKETS TO MARS AND VENUS, A MAN ON MARS AND VENUS BY THE YEAR 2020, A COMPLETE TOTAL PUBLIC MASS TRANSPORTATION OF BUS SYSTEMS ALL ACROSS THE USA SINCE OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM NOW HAS SUCH HUGE EXCESS CAPACITY THAT IT CAN EASILY ACHIEVE ALL OF THIS. THE FED WILL JUST PRINT ALL THE CASH WE NEED FOR THIS INSTEAD OF JUST HANDING IT OVER TO THE BANKS (AKA THE SAME OLD RICH INDIRECTLY OVER AND OVER AGAIN) "

In fact, Excess Capacity is really what this Technological Economy is all about: we have such huge economies of scale, so many millions of people idle worldwide, and so much free money that we could start hundreds of huge large scale projects and at the same time give out scott free handouts to hundreds of millions without any problem at all. Instead all of the excess capacity that can express itself (since the economic system must repress as much excess capacity from expressing itself as possible by keeping hundreds of millions of potential workers (so many young kids all across the planet) idle or else we would be saturated with goods and cash in banks, go figure) is simply converted into trillions of dollars that the same old few thousands of rich families worldwide hog up, not even wanting all that cash but simply because the system automatically is set up to make that excess capacity expressed in cash accumulate in the hands of the top 1 %.

And ironically, it is actually very hard for them to spend so much cash, trillions upon trillions of dollars: just think, how on earth can you really spend all that cash ? it is really insane! Once those families buy their new house and their Cadillac, well now what ? what else can they possibly spend it on ? another house and an Oldsmobile ninety eight, but then there is still way too much cash to know what to do with, so they just play global poker games with finance, stock markets, banks, speculation and all, and call it "Advanced Services", while any real large scale projects are considered bad, socialism and the welfare state.

There won't be any more real jobs in the future, unless you simply invent them: we could write down all the Internet web pages with paper and pencil (or in Europe on Paper and Pen), write all the contents of Computers on paper, millions of people writing things on paper, that would create a lot of work.

Of course, it is all wrong, I am a clown, I admit it: if even one millimeter of what I said would be applied it would all go haywire, the mental computer programs would crash in a jiffy, how I love to be wrong, to see all my large scale theoretical structures collapse in a jiffy, how it would reveal how wrong I was on everything by just trying to apply one bit, what a failure...

QUO VADIS, BABY ?
