Basic income after automation? That’s not how capitalism works

Re: it's all fiction

You'd have to storm all corporations, and seize the means of production. Simply opting out is not enough. We don't have the land (a means of production) to grow food.

Most of us don't have the food and shelter secured (payment free) so we can't purchase or create a means of production with our full effort. Furthermore, assuming we all decided to become overnight entrepreneurs, and each of us had some ware or service to sell on day two. How do we organize who buys what? Someone will have no business on day two, week two, month two, year two, if they don't starve first. In order for people to actually work less, en masse, we need revolution or revolutionary policy.

Haha, tablets...

Tablets saturated the market. The cult of personality no longer has the personality. Big brother is an android and now he wants to be your clothing. What's next?

In defence of defenestration: Microsoft MUST hurl Gates from the Windows

Kinda silly.

They want to get rid of the philanthropic guy? The only figure in the company that humanizes it? They're already on a downward spiral, I guess it won't be THAT harmful to kick out the founder. I mean it worked wonders for Apple, right?

Microsoft: It was never 'Metro,' it was always 'Modern UI'

Cru
Meh

Modern?

Modernism? As in, 20th century?

Welcome to the new millennium. Where's your post-modern UI?
