I wish to emphasise before I begin that robots taking jobs is not the problem, the issue is the current government policies that are not ready to handle this disruption. I am not against automation, far from it, I want as much automation as possible but it would be naive to not consider any potential side effects with the way policies currently are and how slow government and culture can change regarding attitudes towards the most vulnerable in our society. The way the unemployed are treated and the government’s acceptance of spiralling education costs, low social mobility and rising wealth/income inequality are difficult. but optimistically. not insurmountable obstacles.
