To live like the gods

jus' thinkin' 'bout stuff - 04-21-2022 - by steve rigell - https://steverigell.com/to-live-like-the-gods/

In modern societies, where status is accorded to the financially wealthy, or more precisely, purchased by the amount of one’s debt to our planet, the wealthy set themselves up as gods, and the rest of us let them do it.

Wealth is not a measure of productivity. In fact, the biggest wealth building machines ever invented have all been purely about extraction.

The wealthy don’t care about other people. In fact, the mass of humanity is just a necessary nuisance to them, like an uncomfortable natural disaster or an inconvenient interruption of business as usual.

Humans are to be exploited as much as possible.

With advancement robotics, humans will be cast aside. In effect humans will find themselves liberated from servitude and slavery, and released into full-blown poverty, unable to afford food or housing because the wealthy are no longer paying even token wages. They’ve switched to compliant and solicitous robots.

The wealthy are not going to change their ways, voluntarily. Humans just don’t operate that way. They will have to be incentivized to change.

The only thing that will accomplish this is making what they do inconvenient, uncomfortable and devoid of entertainment value.

How do you do that?

I don’t know.

But I do know we’ll have to work together. We’ll have to invest time and effort. And more importantly, we’ll have to change our minds.

We can’t change someone else, we can only change ourselves.
