An Interesting YouTube Clip about the Future of Work

Have a look at this YouTube clip which pretty much summarizes what I, and many other, believe will be the future of work.. or the lack thereof.

What do you think? Comments?

    I think I*ve mentioned this before…

    I remember a few years back how a teller at the bank would always try to get me to sign up for online banking. It’s funny because this teller was essentially talking herself out of a job, sign up for online banking, get your employer to sign up for automatic deposit… etc, etc…

    And you can see this at the checkout line where you now have the option to go to the automatic kiosk at many places…

    Yup, two things could happen–we live in an increasingly stratified society where a few are very wealthy and many can’t find work–or society could place higher wages and less hours-ie people make 35k a year to work 20 hrs a week. The seconds scenario will only happen if the 1 percenters fear a revolution. While the second scenario may seem unlikely, it is far from impossible. Just look at the so called New Deal-how much was because of genuine concern for poor people and how much was because the rich didn’t want a revolution?

    Also we have seen different conditions than the great depression. Production increases, yet wages are at best stagnant or more likely declining.

    Funny how “alpha’s” like Captain Capitaism tell young men to man up and study STEM-many guys don’t have the temperment for the work.

      It may be that Captain Capitalism is obliquely telling young men that they have 0 hope of an honest relationship so better work themselves to the bone doing a niche subject. Then, buy the affection.
      However, going about that by having the employee mindset is wrong,
      as many people in STEM, starting by about age 40 and up,
      find themselves fired and mentally retarded because they held their positions by playing office politics, not improving on their skills or finding side incomes.
      Office politics will not help you keep your job if a bright person at HR decides that losing you would improve the company bottom line.

        I don’t think he can be counted as a friend to low status men. He has shit all over MGTOW. He said basically that it’s understandable that some guys are but most are cowards who didn’t have the balls to try with women. His analogy is like saying Ron Kovic gets to be anti war because he is parapalegic, but most the guys against war are dirty, hippie,faggots who are too pussy to go to war cause they might get hurt….

        but most are cowards who didn’t have the balls to try with women.
        That’s amazing moronism coming from him, since he should understand that there is a cost-benefit ratio for dealing with women,
        and that in the main, ugly or regular guys in the course of trying to date are “harassing” women,
        male models are “courting” women.

        I am remembering that puahate image, where the guy catfished a woman, using the image of Van Bael,
        saying “I want to fuck you, what is your number?”
        and she replying
        “My number is 9xxxxxx (I forget, have to dig it out of my archives), text me honey!”

        LMS theory is pretty real, regular guys need to leverage economic power for the cooze.
        Have to change that tired dynamic of alpha fux, beta bucks …
        into beta fux, maybe some bucks (do not treat or pay for a woman who is not having sex with you).

    Grey produces many other entertaining and educational videos like this. You may also be interested in the random thoughts he expresses with Brady Haran on their YouTube channel and associated blog, Hello Internet.

    Grey’s video is convincing to say the paradigm shift is imminent (or it is here). Looking back a few decades, the introduction of computers and automation reduced a lot of employment. But still people were able to coexist with automation (tellers along with ATMs, answering machines and receptionists, etc.) or find backroom jobs. The future envisaged by this video is unempolyability of humans due to robo-mation, not outsourcing, not automation.

    Are the sheeple going to listen? The rhetoric we indulge on this blog, is it any relevant in the face of coming societal changes?

    Animal Husbandry to A.I. Husbandry. Every kid will be a “pokemon” master with his own trained AI under his belt. He constantly tweaks his programs to help him compete against other kids.

    Man’s new best friend will be the A.I. with every domesticated breed for each general or specialized need.

    check this out…

    now Chuck Rudd, Ryu and Firepower and all the other alt righters can get off their mom’s couch and get a job….

    all those “encounters” with Jack Donovan and Roosh count as acting classes

    I agree about the horse. I see how law , accountancy, medicine and engineering can be done by machines. It’s when I see a machine cleaning the toilet and sink, or looking after my demented uncle I’ll realise my options are for employment are limited. Right too. Creativity is a dime a dozen. Too much creativity and few, very few, that turn an idea into something anybody, or machine, wants or needs.

      In other words, the (employment) pie is getting really small where you have to compete with vast majority of your fellow humans for a fraction of the number of existing jobs?

        Sometimes the competition isn’t even fair: Is there a reason mostly slim attractive women work in customer service?
        Or the “executive assistant” looks more like a “sexretary”?

        Mass immigration legal and illegal including H1B visas are the biggest threat to labor NOT hypothetical robots.

        The robotization of the economy would lead to a new arms race anyway The rise of EMP weaponry would neutralize the trend or at least slow it considerably.

        Women dominating the work force is mostly the result of western society becoming soft and decadent. A new warlike society will rise and conquer their feminized rivals.
