Govt control? Hah! It's IMPOSSIBLE to have a successful command economy

Re: yeah but what about the jobs...?

I've argued directly with Ford on this very point. He fails to close the loop.

If the robots are making everything then those things don't cost anything. And it's no use insisting that the capitalists who own the robots will just take all the money. Because a truly robotic economy would mean that one robot could build another, they could build two more and so on. It would only require one robot, once, to be built and given away for that idea of the capitalists owning them all to fail.
