What’s the purpose of a car that can drive for us, or artificial intelligence that can shoulder 60% of our workload? Is it to allow us to work more hours for even less pay? Or is it to enable us to choose how we work, and to decline any pay/hours we deem insufficient because we’re already earning the incomes that machines aren’t?
I offer it’s that jobs are for machines, and life is for people.
(If you’d have told 20-year-old me that 45-year-old me would be in support of Universal Basic Income, 20-year-old me would have laughed and laughed.)
