”I’m not trying to come up with some socialist bullshit, rob the rich and give it to the poor kind of thing.”

But the rich robbed the rest of us and continue to rob us every day.

We all should be enjoying the benefits that computers, robotics, and AI have brought us. Every single thing should be less expensive, because it no longer requires as much human labor. But the rich stole the savings and kept it for themselves. That’s where Bezos, Gates and the rest found their wealth: in cheaper labor.

We *should* have socialized medicine. We should have a living wage for all. We should take care of our infirm.
