It’s funny not so long ago everybody was saying there a whole bunch of jobs Americans didn’t want to do and now there aren’t gonna enough jobs for everybody. Maybe experts don’t know that much more than the rest of us…

Makes you think, that maybe we need a Basic Living Income taxed off profits made by automation? Otherwise what is our purpose now? We will have nothing cause the machines do it all for us. Is this a Star Trek future Capitalism dies.

@RETROspect Gaming I think the beginning is nigh. Voices like yours are becoming more widespread. Funny thing is that what you're talking about *is* a form of socialism, it's just that people hear that word and automatically associate it with "authoritarianism" because right-wing propaganda has made their meaning interchangeable in the minds of many people, despite socialism being a framework of ideas mostly about economy and worker rights rather than a style of top-down governance that people have been lead to believe it is.

@MiloshPro who are you replying to? And no, that's not the trend we're seeing. Big corps are using automation to save money and increase their profit margins, eliminating human jobs. We're getting a nearly 90° turn away from a Jetsons future, and almost 180° turn away from a Star Trek future. Things are looking a bit more 1984 heading towards The Matrix (though more in the metaphoric sense- the robots are corporate hegemonic oligarchs and the "power" extracted from us is our labor and wealth, where the simulation represents the media/propaganda/social religion illusion most people buy into)

thanks to greed it would sadly be dystopia. in order for utopia to be accomplished capitalism and the era of the rich has to end. but then people freak out and call that socialism and say it isnt possible. because people are dumb lol if we automated ALL jobs and eliminated currency/economy we could all be free to do literally w.e we want whenever we want. but the idea is too big for most people to wrap their heads around because that goes against everything they have ever known. they cant imagine a world without classes, money or an econony so they lable it impossible. its also the first step in global unification and we arent ready for any of these things just yet.

Who needs humans? To who you are important ? The economy does not need really people.

Once enough wealth is amassed, societies can be bought or coerced as they wish.

@xdn't reborn I concur completely. All forms of hardline socialism never work when humans are in charge, and capitalism is by far the best system for humans governing humans, and until something horrible happens that annihilates societal cohesion, capitalism should remain. That's nothing to say about if the government was run by a computer however.

@Strike Phoenix I was sleep deprived when I wrote that, so I overcomplicated it. So here's the issue with socialism and completely unregulated market. "There will always be someone who has to clean the toilets" so to speak. That's something to learn from the first Bioshock. There will always be work that nobody wants to get done, and thus someone, or something, has to do that work, making their life worse. Well the solution to that is service robots. Meanwhile the reason why socialism _never bloody works no matter what the left tells you_ is because it is run by _humans._ There will never be a person that can be trusted with that much power, and even if there was? It's only a matter of time before they're dead. The solution? Computer Overmind programmed to make human's lives as good as possible. Because a computer is primarily interested in achieving it's goal and utterly disinterested in personal gain. The result is a sandwich power structure where the highest echelon of power is controlled by a machine, and the lowest ranks are occupied by machines, leaving humans square in the middle to pursue craftsmanship, arts and the like. Is it feasible for any country to become like this? No. Because the elite want to stay the elite. It would take some real bad shit for that structure to arise organically. It's some futurism nonsense I'll freely admit that, but I do think it's the best structure for humanity, for both stability and happiness.

We need those jobs not for the consumer, but for the worker who then uses their pay to buy food and the like to consume

1950s science-fiction told me that we should be all united as a species by now, that we´re listening to the scientists and strive for a better future among the stars. Machines helped us get rid of work altogether and resources are distributed evenly so nobody goes hungry and can enjoy their own time as they wish. How naive, how sad it didn´t happen.

@Tomasz Rajek as long as the concept of money exists there will be people who exist simply to take advantage of that concept.

This channel is awesome. I love your work. And, about the topic of this video: automation will, for sure, destroy a lot of workplaces and lives, a whole generation could be wiped out, the risk is true. But after this tragedy, the survivors will specialize themselves on works that no machine ever will be able to substitute - like the work of a psychologist, or that of an artist - and maybe, the humanity, freed from the hard work inside a fabric or inside a warehouse, will be less stressed and more capable to re-discover the essence of the humanity. At least, that's what i think and hope.

Kursgesagt seems to forget that jobs aren't the only measure of economic activity/prosperity - there are artists, musicians, writers, performers, entertainers, social helpers, individual inventors & creators (includes social media info creaters such as DE-vid, Instagram, etc.), coaches, human organizers, etc. (the list is actually endless if one really thinks hard enough). Each one of these alternatives (to jobs) contributes to economic activity, human prosperity & human utilization. The question should not be about "will there be enough jobs?", but rather - how innovate humanity is in evolving to changing circumstances to meet their needs, regardless of what the change agent is (agrarian advances, industrialization, automatization & robotics, AI, and many more throughout the history of human evolution).

Jay Tse
Jay Tse Vor 4 Monate
​@Dahak What you mention is a major flaw of unregulated capitalism. i.e. for capitalism to survive, someone has to spend money. If people don't have money to spend (because of lack of jobs, sources of income, bad health, or a hundred other reasons), then how will the capitalists/elites be able to continue their upward trajectory ? How will automation alone increase profits if there is no/low transference of money from consumers to producers ? To ensure the money supply is stable and continues, people will need to be given money to spend (either through employment, or guaranteed livable income, or some other such scheme). Hence, you can reduce the jobs to a certain extent. But beyond that threshhold, the spillover effects will affect everyone in that shared economy. As an example, look at those countries in the world where unemployment is really high and the wealth inequality index is also very high (some that come to mind - Venezuela, North Korea, most African countries, etc.) Eventually, there may be some dystopian outcomes like you suggest, or a balance between automation/non-automation may be achieved. (BTW, I am an optimistic pessimist :) )
Dahak Vor 4 Monate
How much money can a DE-vidr make if the advertisers start paying less money because enough viewers are out of work that they aren't buying products? That is the thing with the current automation path. Unlike before where it added value and jobs, what is happening now adds value for the owners and decreases jobs and/or reduces the aggregate value of available jobs. That is a BAD thing for the current structure of the world economy. To make money you sell a thing to someone who has money for less than you made it for. Great. What happens when the customer base keeps shrinking? You make less money. That means you have less money to spend yourself so you buy less and you let go of workers supplying the old demand level, further reducing the customer base. That leads to a complete crash. You can see examples of it in the run-down towns/cities where major industries closed. Close the car plant or coal mine or ironworks and the town that grew up around that industry collapses. And we can't stop it. You can't put the technology back in the bottle. Even if you try to outlaw automation, it just delays it as the law will eventually be overturned or just ignored by the people who are already powerful (aka wealthy) enough to manipulate the system. Basically, what this means is that the current paradigm is unstable and will collapse sometime in the future. Whether that collapse is into some kind of semi-post-scarcity utopia, a dystopic hell-hole, or the complete collapse of modern civilization back to the feudal age is up to us. Also, your listed options are not going to work for everyone. Not everyone is capable of competing as a creator. For every successful artist there are hundreds of artists who end up flipping burgers, working phones, etc. And as others have said, that can all be automated. Turns out there are things our brains like more than others on average and AI can make things that meet those criteria. In a few decades the AIs will be able to pump out customized music, artwork, etc. to the tastes of subgroups of individual consumers better than the majority of human artists. A few more decades beyond that and humans will just be following the directions of the AI artists or out of the loop altogether. Why wait a year for a human author to write the sequel to that book/movie/TV show you liked? The AI can pop one out much faster and cheaper, so why bother paying a human? Sports is about the only thing that would be left, and only a tiny fraction of people can become good enough to compete there so thats not helpful.

You know, something just occurred to me: Automation is going to end the need for "work" altogether, in the same way the industrial revolution eventually ended slavery. A world that has advanced automation _should be_ a world of abundance for everyone... So the problem with automation is actually cultural: We've always lived in a world of scarcity and this has ingrained in us the notion that we shouldn't constantly give valuable goods away without repayment of some sort. If we hold on to that notion, automation is going to be a curse. People will starve because they can't pay for food, despite the fact that robots will be producing literal mountains of it for free.

@Sailor Poon maybe we won’t have to do anything because higher standards of living typically results in lower birth rates - especially with improved healthcare that lowers infant mortality rates; people stop having “spare” kids.

The only way this or rather FALC works is with strict population control. This could be accomplished within a few generations with gene therapy that steralizes the population. Census would be closely watched and children would be applied for. Anything less than this results in over population and unsustainable resource consumption.

@Ethribin In the world of ubiquitous AI, a dictator won't need keys, with intelligent machines a man can actually rule alone.
Ethribin Vor year
Actually, the problem is different. We wount have abundance. Resources are limited, and always will be. The problem is not that full automation goes against our nature. Its that full automation destroys our system that used to dictate reslurce distribution. Amassing wealth through work. Without work, theres no wealth to amass. Theres no work to trade for resources. The economy will break down as supply and demand still is there, but theres no means of trading, as one side has nothing to offer. And having some system or group of people decide on who gets what resource and how much will just lead to whats effectively dictatorships. Not something thats desired by anyone but the dictator and his keys. THAT is the problem of automation. The removal of the one thing people have to trade for resources they dont produce themselves. Work.

"tiny minority of the super-rich, who own the machines, dominating the rest of us" (10:18) - yeah it's pretty much like that now, so why would it change? Combine that with the ever decreasing purchasing power of the middle class, plus we all saw what happened in this pandemic as the super-rich got even richer by a HUGE margin. Also productivity going up 42% but time worked staying the same is rather depressing.

Here's a thought: The only reason we need jobs is because we need money to buy stuff. If automation comes to a point where we can produce things ridiculously cheap, would we still need to have jobs? My point is, the industrial revolution liberated a lot of minds to pursue art and other interesting things, what if the information revolution liberated us all just to enjoy life and do the things we are interested in just because we enjoy them? I know this may sound utopic right now, but that's probably how people thought about free time before the industrial revolution.

What if robotification, digitalization, automation have reached such no turn back point, when human (or even every biological being) are just serving blocks for silicon based digital lifeform? Just think about it in a such way: algorythms collecting and processing our data and correcting our behavior in a way to produce more silicon based devices - from smartphones to production robotics, from crypto currency mining farms to a tik tok services and pc games. Especially, the last ones, because they directly involve the reward system (the mesocorticolimbic circuit), so humans getting addicted and do everything to get more of that. From this point of view, this (and many others) kurzgesagt's videos are just instruments to produce more silicon based devices which will give more power and complexity to silicon based intelligence. Maybe from human point of view, this intelligence is not that smart or it can't make any kind of art (which we, humans, are proud of) but fungi called Cordyceps doesn't have intelligence at all while drastically change ant behavior shortly after infection. Sounds kinda pessimistic, right? Or, maybe, this is a remake of an good old (billions of years old) story, when some kind of archaea cell caught another bacteria - but instead of digest it - left this bacteria for producing ATP - and then eukaryot cell emerged with mitochondria inside. Maybe, humans already have become a part of more complicated structurally lifeform? Anyway, you can think about this before go to bed, shortly after your device, where you have read this comment, forced you to plug it for charging up.

​@Andrew Mcfarlane This can already be seen with the political climate of the recent years. Neoliberal capitalism is failing many, many people, and as a result, people have become increasingly radicalized to anti-establishment ideologies. Unfortunately, it goes both ways: both leftism and fascism are on the rise. This is, of course, a fight that has been going back and forth for centuries: the fight between those who want hierarchy, and those who want to flatten the pyramid. Those who want to fulfill the promises of the Enlightenment that capitalism has not delivered on, and those who want to return to a time before the Enlightenment when the divine right of the ruling class was not questioned. Obviously, my bias is showing, but I can substantiate all these claims. But, to address your concerns: yes, many people are pushed to the brink everyday. The establishment uses apathy and hopelessness like a weapon against the common people who wish to change things. For example, many people on the Left across the world have been disheartened by Bernie Sander's struggle to become president taking a harsh turn, and I personally have seen many people grow hopeless and bitter with the fight not even being over. What's important to remember though, is even if Bernie loses, the fight is STILL not over. More and more people are waking up. More and more people want to live in an egalitarian society, where justice and compassion reign instead of misanthropy and avarice. Do not give up your hopes for a better world. As grim as things seem sometimes, remember that there are millions, BILLIONS of good people stretched out across the globe, all made to feel like they are alone and powerless. We are not alone. We are not powerless. The fight will be long and arduous, but we will persevere, for the betterment of mankind, as we have for millennia.

Controversial opinion; I would be okay with data harvesting if the public that they glean the data from collects royalties from it. But of course companies would never give us royalties.
DJ DiZKOMFT Vor year
@Estrong Sure, an employer can risk wasting time and money training an employee who's a liability or just plain lazy etc., but the employee is GUARANTEED to be exploited by the employer. The employer's profit is the value of the employee's work that they aren't compensated for. Also, I think you misunderstand socialism. Democratization of the workplace =/= state ownership. And democratization of the workplace IS the ONLY way the working class will truly have a voice, respect, and an identity beyond a mask to sell themselves as an exploitable commodity. Lastly, socialism and free markets are not necessarily at odds with each other. Look up "market socialism." Again, I think you're misunderstanding socialism and only thinking of an authoritarian state-capitalist society such as Stalin's oppressive regime in the USSR. Socialism comes in many flavors, but first and foremost, it is simple democratization of the workplace. And, whatever role the government is to play in a socialist society, I think we can all agree that government isn't scary when it does what it is supposed to do: represent the will of the people, which our current government (and nearly all governments) don't do. Something like public ownership is only scary because our current gov't is beholden only to the interests of the ruling class, the billionaires and mega-corporations and their lobbyists. The government as it stands is neither an advocate for nor beholden to the People, it is their oppressor.
