Many lower wage jobs are currently protected from automation primarily because technology cannot yet replicate a person’s ability to recognize and manipulate objects. That is changing, and once affordable robotic technologies begin to outperform people in tasks that require sophisticated hand-eye coordination combined with moderate-level decision making skills, millions of jobs will be at high risk.

The Kochs are longtime libertarians who believe in drastically lower personal and corporate taxes, minimal social services for the needy, and much less oversight of industry—especially environmental regulation. These views dovetail with the brothers’ corporate interests. In a study released this spring, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst’s Political Economy Research Institute named Koch Industries one of the top ten air polluters in the United States. And Greenpeace issued a report identifying the company as a “kingpin of climate science denial.” The report showed that, from 2005 to 2008, the Kochs vastly outdid ExxonMobil in giving money to organizations fighting legislation related to climate change, underwriting a huge network of foundations, think tanks, and political front groups. Indeed, the brothers have funded opposition campaigns against so many Obama Administration policies—from health-care reform to the economic-stimulus program—that, in political circles, their ideological network is known as the Kochtopus.

This isn’t Capitalism..
This is slavery. They call it voluntary servitude. How can it be voluntary when they manipulate the economy and the Government, forcing us to work in their factories when Capitalism is owning the means of production ourselves!!
The robber barrons have deceived us for centuries, convincing us that they should be the sole owners of the means of production including owning our own labor!!
How can someone else own your labor? They can’t. They must steal your labor! They steal our labor by denying us the right to own the means of production.
And we give our consent to this voluntary servitude [wage slavery].
A Corporations should be owned by the workers. Workers take turns running the Corporations for the benefit of the consumers and the workers! Workers having a vested interest in the Corporation would keep wages at an acceptable level to ensure that the price of the product would be competitive. Workers would share the net earnings of the Corporation at the end of the year as bonuses, setting aside enough profit to keep operations going as well as research and development.
Workers serving as management would understand the complexities of business and the need for the operations of the shop floor, the assembly line as well as financing.
Our current system gives a select few the profits of the Corporations and leaves out the workers whose labor makes the profits possible. Who selected these chosen few? They selected themselves! They claim only their class may profit from your labor! We have fell for this stitch for centuries.
Even today Farmers work their farms in voluntary servitude [wage slavery]. Agriculture died years ago. It’s now Agribusiness!
Every worker now labors under voluntary servitude. It took centuries to destroy the private enterprises in favor of robber baron socialistic Corporations where only Management profits from the means of production. Today workers readily collect unemployment insurance instead of having control of their labor and enjoying the profits of their production.
Workers have accepted slavery over ownership while taking on the loses of the Corporations they slave for Who gets wages reduced? Who gets downsized? Who gets outsourced? While Management shares the increased profits with themselves in the form of bonuses, golden parachutes and stock options.
It’s time workers organized their own Corporations and owned the means of production and their own Labor!!!
We are the accountants, the entrepreneurs, the engineers, and the shop floor/ assembly line workers. We can manage our own business thank you very much. Its time to put the robber barons out on the street begging for handouts. Workers are the real profit of any production!
Workers Incorporate today. Before the robber barons start replacing our labor with CyberInterNetics!

Organise social, religious and poltical movements to force banking regulation, reversing of the bail-outs, nationalisation of our stolen assets and/or ANY development of civilisation…we cannot have human beings in groups or individuals effecting the Market (‘pbuh’).
***Make sure you buy a wind-up/ solar powered laptop, as IT geeks have not yet solved the problem of how to generate electrictiy while sitting at their desk looking at a computer screen, stroking their silver bullion.
Capitalist Workers Own the Means of Production
Its time workers became Capitalist and owned the means of production. Currently workers do not own the machines of production nor do workers own their labor! How sad is it that robber barons have used Capitalism against us all these years.
Be a Capitalist
Own your own Labor, own the means of production!!
