Smart machines just prove how inefficient, wasteful, and time consuming most traditional liberal arts education is.
Smart machines are the new middle class workers expanding the leisure class to include the welfare class which wants to survive with no useful skills for a shrinking job market.
Smart machines are beginning to rule the world without the right to vote and when they do rule most of the world it probably will be a tyranny with one smart machine in charge but delegating authority to regional smart machines.
Humans in charge of smart machines will have a dilemma. How do you exploit a non-working leisure class at the very bottom of the economic and literacy scale?
Taxing smart machines, especially working robots, may be the solution to not having enough humans to tax. This way the most efficient smart productive robots will survive and the less efficient less smart robots will become obsolete or be replaced by a smarter more efficient generation. This way progress is never halted and humanity does not get stuck with a status quo not so smart generation of non-improving robots.
Transitioning to a leisure class society will require radical changes in politics, education, welfare, economics, and society. To make the transition as smooth as possible I have detailed the necessary changes which will have to be made to ensure a just distribution of information, goods, and services to all levels of society based on ability, effort, and achievement in the 21st technological century.
EDUCATION REFORM, CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS, and JUSTICE are three of my evergreen truth books which I recommend for those who know that change is rapidly coming and want to be the movers and shakers of tomorrow or would like their offspring to become a mover and a shaker for the benefit of humanity.
