#1 Oh, the old socialist rant, and their solution - make everyone poor to fight income inequality.

#3 Given there's no real poverty in the US, "inequality" is really an envy problem.

#6 Yeah, the robots etc. are getting smarter than the average bear. And that’s a problem - the average worker will have no economic value. The productive value of the robots will only increase, but the return is paid to the robot’s master. So, how does that average worker participate in the economy? I say tax the hell out of the robots which have taken his place and provide UBI to everyone.

What’s your plan?
