Anti Wage-Slavery Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 1512-1514

Time is the most important capital we own. We can lose great fortunes, and, if we are lucky, we may be able to regain them. But time is the only source of wealth which, once spent, can never be regained. There is only a finite amount of it for every person. "Ask me for anything," Napoleon is supposed to have said at the height of his power, "and I will be able to give it to you. Anything, that is, except time."
Norman Cousins,
The Healing Heart

[emphasis JS]

 ...the Lord commands that all those disobedient to their parents be put to death.
John Calvin,
Institutes of the Christian Religion

I think that we should turn over ALL work of a non-creative nature to the robots as quickly as possible, thus finally freeing humanity to do what humans do best — think.

...Before long, it will be possible for all of humanity’s material needs to be met by machinery of one sort or another, and I say that we ought to do whatever is necessary to hasten the process. Just imagine a world of people free at last of material want (and not incidentally, free of the need to struggle against each other to secure what really are ample though very poorly distributed resources), and free to do what they genuinely want to do — write, compose, paint, sculpt, research, explore, invent, or whatever their heart’s desire.

How do we fix job-stealing robots? We don’t.
