Lots of us who didn't get outsourced got automated out of a job. Roll back automation? Why not? It can be taxed, same as your income. When the tax hits the right level, the robots start to get replaced by humans. It's something to think about. Of course it will be dismissed by those who think God created automation and called it "progress." Nonsense. People hired engineers to build Rube Golberg contraptions because the venture penciled out profitable, not for any public good. Governments and taxes are there to promote the public good. Does anybody remember that?
