58. People to maintain and create the new technology, as always

The times change, but people will always have jobs, trust me. They might be totally different from the jobs we have now, but they will be there - just like you don't have a town smelter who creates swords anymore, or jobs related to using horses to get around. The times change, and the types of jobs change with the times.

What I'm saying is, everything has a downside. People's valued skills one day will be totally useless the next. It's just the way it is. It's not a reason to turn technological advancement into the villain. It's just that, with progress, there is always a need to adapt.
