MASS MEDIA IS DEAD AND SO ARE SHARED CULTURAL TRADITIONS IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

The internet and technology opened the door to worldwide communications and made information from almost unlimited sources to become available. The long duration result was an atomized existence for most humans pursuing their own interests, wanting instant gratification, and not being brainwashed by a dominant media with just one basic cultural agenda.

More articles and books are published on a yearly basis than ever before but fewer and fewer humans are spending their time reading them. The traditional half hour or hour programs on radio and TV are fast losing their appeal as humans more and more want their information in short sound and video bytes and are quick to change channels, shows, or videos if they can’t maintain their interest.

The net result is a loss in cultural traditions and shared opinions on many things. Traditional moral values are being assaulted and immorality is on the rise. Almost nothing is sacred anymore and deviant lifestyles run rampant destroying family life and social cohesion. Trust in the leadership is at an all time low and relatively few leaders remain with impeccable reputations.

A descent into social chaos is occurring and almost no one has a solution on how to prevent the destructive forces and emerge with an effective antidote or solutions to the increasing problems of addictions to bad behavior and drugs.

The fundamental problem is a moral corruption which the left leaning academia, celebrities, media, and even deep state are trying to cure with a left wing ideology and censorship of opposing views which exacerbates the problem and doesn’t really cure the dysfunctional morality and lifestyles. Left wing propaganda not guided by reason, morality, and just legal traditions will not work in the long run and has to be enforced by coercive means and oppressive censorship.

Is there room for optimistic views about the future? Yes, smart robots and smart interactive audio visual software will eventually teach young offspring a commonly believed secular moral code and by the age of about 13 most will know what is impulsively right or wrong to do. A useful education which includes math and basic scientific principles will be taught to everyone who puts in the time and effort to learn to the best of their ability and the rest will be destined to live on welfare with free useful education available to all who want to rejoin the workforce and become contributing members of society. The amount of welfare given will be directly proportional to the amount of useful education which they have learned even if they remain unemployed.

We can have a moral nation or world where ability and effort will be rewarded and if you chose not to participate in usefully educating yourself further for free then you will exist for the rest of your life on a safety net of minimal welfare support, and probably without a family.

What is this secular moral code? In non emergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

Call this social proposal a dystopian or utopian world but it is the most just social order imaginable for all practical purposes in a future world ruled by a technological elite with most of the population effectively unemployed for a lifetime.

TRUMP: AN AMATEUR POLITICIAN FIGHTING THE RULING CLASS!!!

It is somewhat of a miracle that a celebrity real estate tycoon was elected president after fighting against the Republican political establishment and then having to fight against the Democratic establishment, the Democratic media establishment, and yes even the leadership of the deep state establishment. One man fighting the leadership of the establishment and yet ironically being a member of the establishment elite.

Say what you will about his flawed character or personality but he is by far the one with the most balls or courage to come down the pike in recent history. He has unmasked the corrupt ruthlessness and biases of the elite establishment and I think politics will never be the same old dribble as long as he is in office. It would be nice but Utopian to believe that one man could cure what ails the corrupt dysfunctional leadership of the United States but he has succeeded in unmasking the charade or deceptions of the leadership elite. Regaining obedient trust in the wisdom of the leadership has been shattered and the only way that the leadership will regain that trust is through smart actions and results which will benefit the nation in the long duration.

Trump has made skeptics out of many of us. Many of us now doubt that the leadership is working towards our benefit and not just for the benefit of the monied ruling elite. Already we are seeing some politicians promising everyone free medicine, free schooling, and more welfare goodies but not being too concerned about telling them where the bulk of the money will be coming from to pay for the free stuff.

Big money has always been influential and a priority in politics. In a global economy the Special interests of international banks and corporations is wielding a heavy foot on the fiscal and ideological policy of every nation including the United States.

It is not outside the realm of possibility that soon there will be a guaranteed national basic income for everyone because most will soon not be able to find work in an increasingly technological, robotized, and computer software workplace. There will probably be the technological ruling elite and most will be little more than obedient serfs strung out on feel good drugs and living off of a fixed low income. The well off at the top of the income ladder and the vast majority at the lower end of the income ladder. Most of the middle class will have been destroyed.

Yes, votes will then count and most will be voting for an increase in the national basic income. Unless their votes are reduced to a fraction of a vote, their luxurious demands will quickly bankrupt the welfare economy of the nation. Yes, we may wind up having to tax the robots and computer software that will be doing most of the labor or work and thinking in the nation and not tax the humans on welfare with no income earned.

This all sounds like a doomsday scenario but unless the mechanics of running the nation are radically changed a Democratic Republic will be transformed into an ideological one party tyranny from which there will be no return.

WHAT IS LIKELY WHEN ROBOTS AND COMPUTER SOFTWARE STARTS TO CONTROL MOST THINGS???

When computer automation takes over most jobs, who will be in a position to consume products and services without earned income? Well, obviously those maintaining the technology will be in the forefront with more than decent wages but the vast majority will be on some form of government welfare and on a fixed income.

Politically this is a little scary because the overwhelming majority will always vote for more welfare money and this could enslave the remaining elite working class and make them slaves supporting the welfare class. I would strongly suggest that we reduce the votes of those on welfare to a fraction of one vote so that the vote of the minority working class has more clout. Of course this will need a constitutional amendment which is probably highly unlikely to pass.

The robots will be the new dominant workers and it makes sense that they will eventually be taxed to fund all the humans which they have replaced and now will be living on welfare. A guaranteed annual minimum wage without working has already been proposed so effectively most will not be working but just spending money given by the government. The political and social ramifications are revolutionary but the financial ramifications are revolutionary also where financial growth is going to be dependent on an increase in robot productivity and not human productivity.

There will be no credit for those on welfare so spending and their income will only rise if their government benefits will. Inflation will be less of a problem because there will be over production. Monopolistic production may be in the hands of relatively few so prices and inflation may rise because of product price increases in the monopolistic economy.

Most humans will no longer own their own cars, own homes, and recreational vehicles but will be renting them if they save up enough money. They will be riding around in hired driverless vehicles, living in apartments, having few if any offspring, and spending most of their time at home. They will be eating, drinking, doing drugs, having sex, and spending most of their time online in search of entertainment or if smart, seeking further useful educational advancement.

For some, not having to work sounds like utopia but for others it is a kind of dystopia or permanent retirement from life with all its possible adventures, anxieties, stresses, and tragedies. Was human kind meant to live in retirement mode or will it cause a dramatic increase in health problems, addictions, and mental illness? Only time will tell.

Small businesses will dramatically decrease because the initial capital investment in them will be huge and the probability of failure extremely high. Specialty internet small businesses may still thrive but employed workers for these enterprises will probably be minimal.

Actually what I have outlined so far is a likely scenario if a country is self sustaining  or self supporting and produces everything that it consumes. Realistically we are in a competitive worldwide environment of relatively free trade and the threat of financial national bankruptcy is a greater threat than is that of robotization. If you just keep spending and producing very little for consumption or export bankruptcy is inevitable.

Other countries are becoming more competitive and are producing products more cheaply than we could ever hope to. The United States will have relatively cheap products from around the world but the budget deficit will grow by leaps and bounds.

International banks, corporations, and institutions have more political clout than that of any one nation. Wealth is being spread worldwide and the United States unfortunately is on a never ending slide in standard of living. A more likely scenario is that the United States will just become another third world nation with relatively few in a wealthy upper class and the vast majority will be in a relatively poor lower class as far as income is concerned.

Unless made in the United States has a rebirth and there are things which the world needs from the United States, besides food, energy, and military protection, the United States will continue its almost inevitable economic slide downwards on into the foreseeable future.

Much more could be written about automation such as bot content creators for almost everything we see and read, bot actors, bot musicians, bot teachers, bot nannies, bot sexual partners, drone deliveries, etc. No human field is safe from robotization or a symbiosis between humans and machines. How fast this trend will continue is debatable but this kind of change is inevitable to the detriment of future generations of average not exceptional humans. If you are part of the technological revolution then you will do just fine. If not, your life may seem rather meaningless without a job that you can derive satisfaction and purpose from.
