46. Insufficiently regulated capitalism is unsustainable over time.

Capitalism can be restrained and rules made and maintained by law. It's just that
we don't do that very well. And...sufficient regulation is not even possible without a critical mass of voters
who are educated about basic market/labor theory. That's the problem in a nutshell.

You make a good point regarding automation. They'll (the wealthy humans in control of the now automated
labor) will probably try and "exterminate" us somehow. Maybe they'll create a pandemic virus and
inoculate themselves. Maybe they'll find a way to isolate themselves and let everybody else
fend and fight amongst themselves. I think that would be risky unless they have a very good
security state/system protecting them...so probably the former solution...or a version thereof.


No, I'm not kidding.
