Great article today on zerohedge...

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/labor-day-2012-future-work

So what does the future look like? Where are all the jobs going to come from when technology is taking over? Are we heading towards Terminator scenario?

Onstar can shut down your car when they want. Iphones are using facial recognition that is being stored by the machine. Apparently when a political convention comes to town (RNC) its acceptable to declare martial law and monitor everyone on everything, everywhere.

This massive power needs to be decentralized ASAP because its geting to the point of no return, and when the shit hits the fan we want options on how to rebuild this thing.

America will experience a slow degredation of lifestyle - so slow we won't notice each year things get a little worse, and we sacrifice a little more. It's a matter of getting used to it. Gas goes to $7.00 a gallon and people will pray for $5.00 - it hits $5.00 and they don't protest they just accept it and stay grateful. It's a quick push and retreat then a little push back. Corporations are always pushing boundaries because even if they only get half of what they pushed for there is always next year. Even if they only get a quarter of what they pushed for a CEO still gets a bonus and Americans get used to a little less. There is never a drastic enough change to make Americans go crazy with rebellion. There is this balance between abuse and appeasement. I believe it's very strategic and being thoughtfully maneuvered. People come to accept less thank ok because it's better than what they were expecting. It's happening so slowly nobody realizes it. There are teams of social psychologists measuring and studying this stuff out there (they may hide behind research groups or marketing titles) but they're out there studying you. Measuring you're resentment and plotting their next moves. Corporations are operating on Nazi-like levels - and working at a constant and steady pace to take, take, take, from you and get you to like it.

Shaking the sleep from their slumber is a must..

First, learn to spell. Second - Marshall law in Tampa. I don't think so. Get your facts straight. There was hurricane threat in Tampa, and many times curfews are imposed to keep people safe. Only if you pay for On-star, can they shut off your car. On-star only works if it is paid for. Facebook uses facial recognition. It is pretty bad, too. What kind of fear mongering are you trying to insight? I find it entertaining.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Curfews? From a nonexistent hurricane? Onstar will be standard in all cars soon. Im not fear mongering, I'm simply stating trends.

Throw in the gov's new found power to indef detain anyone they like.

[-] -1 points by evileye (11) 2 years ago

Where are you getting your information? I live in Florida. Tampa was under a HURRICANE warning (this means the chances are good one can develop, doesn't mean it will)...curfews are standard. You thank Barry for the new found power to detain anyone...You and I and the rest of this country's best shot is to vote him and the rest of the idiots out of office. Barry didn't grow up here, he has an agenda for the US. He's mad. If we don't get him out, were all fucked. Do you have a cell phone? think about your cell phone, i wouldn't be worrying about onstar....

martial law was not delcared in tampa.

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Were you here? No. Then shut the fuck up.

[-] 1 points by brudlo (-454) 2 years ago

martial law was not declared in tampa during the rnc.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

No shit. I suppose when someone says its rainging cats and dogs you expect to see Fido flopping in the wind, too, eh?

I've been trying to warn you goons. Dan Thomas knocked it out of the park with "Death by Technology". There's never going to be enough decent jobs ever again because technology is replacing us while at the same time the population is exploding. Wake up people! This is a blessing. What it really means is that "We are free". Don't be stupid enough to buy the line of republicans and bankers. They are blaming us for their failure by pushing crazy ideas of austerity. They don't know what else to do because the system is imploding and it will take us with it if we don't wake the hell up. There is a much better vision of the future that we can all live with.

The revolution has started! It's just waiting for you!

How else can I say this? "We Are Free!" http://WeAreFree.osixs.org

If you take away immigration, our population is actually decreasing.

We arent going to wake up anytime soon, so buckle up buddy :)

[-] 1 points by rickMoss (435) 2 years ago

They next wake up call is almost here. If it doesn't wake you up it doesn't matter because you're dead. So we have to deal with it now along with more pain and suffering.

I'm talking world population. Everyone needs a way to live not just Americans. So it doesn't matter where the population comes from. Technology doesn't care...

Barring mass violence, it may already be past the point of no return.

[-] 1 points by trashyharry (2781) from Waterville, NY 2 years ago

The jobs are never coming back.We will have to give jobs to ourselves if we want to work,because Capitalism really doesn't need large numbers of employees anymore.

[-] 1 points by rickMoss (435) 2 years ago

I agree with you for the most part. But the truth is we don't need freak-en jobs anymore. I know most people can't handle that especially the old crowd. I'm an electrical engineer and it spun my head around too but it's right on point. The problem is us. Our head is on backwards. Technology can do the bulk of the work for us now. That is what technology is all about. It's not about serving the rich and big business. it is about serving us. The technology is ours because it comes from us. When enough people learn they don't have to be slaves to government, big business and the banks this nightmare will be over. We will continue to get crushed if we think we can compete with technology. Spread the word.

If we could get wages up, and prices down, I dont think it would be much of an issue.

When the shit hits the fan? And when will that happen?

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Im not sure, Im obviously not close enough to important people to know.

Some say when the next big terror/natural disaster happens.

Others think it will be when QE4 comes into play. Many are expecting QE3 sometime after the election. It wont be too effective, so QE4 should be shortly afterwards, at which point everyone will realize the entire system is a joke.

But then again, I thought the RNC was going to be a lot crazier than it was.

[-] 0 points by Lucky1 (-125) from Wray, CO 2 years ago

Perhaps that time will not happen soon.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

I think they want to draw it out as long as possible, in order to keep the population at bay.

But I do think the time where the markets declare enough is enough is coming.

[-] 0 points by Lucky1 (-125) from Wray, CO 2 years ago

The "markets " will have little say in the end.....

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

The markets run everything as of right now.

Whether that changes, will to be seen. It would take an awakening of the people. And only about 5% are awake right now. Thats a big hill to climb.

[-] 0 points by Lucky1 (-125) from Wray, CO 2 years ago

Or...perhaps it won't happen in the ways both the left and right expect.....
