Basically asserts, HUMAN-LABOR, to obtain their means of subsidence, originally imposed by nature, is the ROOT CAUSE OF HUMAN EXPLOITATION. It results in inequality, injustice, corruption etc. Therefore, along with technological advancement, a gradual reduction in working hours intended, to completely ELIMINATING it with an EQUITABLE Universal Basic Income (UBI) marks the beginning of NO LABOR/WORK COMPULSION on people, the essence of Zero Work Theory (ZWT), for FUTURE HUMAN SOCIETY.

ZWT-II: Future Human Occupations
The Unprecedented Technological Growth
The unprecedented growth in
the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robots, has become the most important topic in
the global economic forums, business circles. Prominent business forecast agencies,
research analyst predict major technology disruption, most jobs that exists
today will disappear in the next decades. The HR work force specialist maintain even though much of the
jobs will be displace in the coming decades
there will be many more or enough
new jobs will be created to replace the old ones. However, no one quite sure, which
sectors will create enough new jobs, to keep
the unemployment rate at around the present acceptable level. The science and
technology progressing in leaf and bound called as exponential growth.
Autonomous self-driving cars/vehicles
licensed on the streets by the Government, seems to be the torch bearer signalling
the paradigm shift of AI now transcending into the SERVICE SECTOR. Transportation
industry heralding this transformation. Even
though, the AI entered into the services sector like warehouses, retail and sales market before the autonomous cars did,
nevertheless the driverless cars on the streets mostly catches the public
attention. Intelligent Chabot’s entering people’s homes in larger numbers. The
Amazon warehouses, online stores, supermarket giants Wal-Mart, McDonalds
employing robots in their outlets which can replace cashiers salesperson,
manager positions. Industries, businesses all over the world especially in
China’s shedding human jobs alarmingly in large numbers. Most importantly the highly
paid cognitive human intelligent jobs like doctor, lawyer, accountants
teachers are equally have become fertile
ground of AI automation. IoT’s, Chabot,
Sophia, Sexbots, Humanoid robots becoming reality. The technologically
progressive minded companies today pride themselves primarily called as the AI
companies and propose Universal Basic Income to alleviate any public fear about
the future massive Technological Unemployment
Technological Unemployment 2020.
When we talk about the
Technological Unemployment we mainly
think about the AI robot automation but other science and technological fields
like Bio-Tech and Nano tech may eliminate
far larger number of jobs. For example the lab grown cell cultured or plant
based alternative meat products bio-tech start-up who like to call themselves
as Clean Meat companies have stated to entering the traditional meat and dairy
industry estimated to having US$50 trillion worth globally. The first beef
burger created in 2013 was cost $375,000, Now, the price has dropped drastically
to $30 per pound. The prices expected to go down around $3 by
the year 2025 or earlier. The traditional farm produce industry employs hundreds
of million workers and most of these jobs are at risk of closing. The lab cell
cultured biotech food is not limited only to meat but also can be extend into
milk, egg, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Therefore, the impact of biotech in human job
elimination perhaps far greater than the
once could have imagined.
Experts claim that the AI
will create enough or more jobs as it happened in the history before. Their basic argument is that the progress in
the technology always created new jobs as proven by the Industrial Revolution.
However, they miss a crucial point. There always been ONLY three major Job sectors
since human civilization, Agriculture, Manufacturing and the Service sector. Agriculture
occupied greatest portion of the labor market, Manufacturing and Service occupied
very less for hundreds thousands of years. The industrial revolution of the 18th
century changed everything, on its way, it gradually eliminated the need of most
of the human labor in the Agricultural Sector but did not create any new Job sector, It only
shifted most of its jobs into manufacturing sector also stimulating the growth of the service
sector. As the industrial revolution
reached its advanced stage around 20th century it pushed most of the
jobs both from agriculture and manufacturing sector transferring all of it into
the Service sector.
Further down 21st
century today, the rapidly advancing AI revolution now, have started flushing out the human jobs from its last remaining resort
called Service sectors. There will be no new employment sector for the humans
jobs to go. The Zero Work Theory (ZWT)
predicts that 2020 can become marked as the year of INFLECTION of various
science and technology including the Quantum computing and 5G. All these can make the TIPPING POINT in
the unemployment figures, after which human
society will start witnessing severe impact
of the exponential AI Technological growth, the unemployment will start to rise
from its present 4 to 5 per cent,
initially it may be in single digits, but as we enter the third decade,
the unemployment percentage may rise dramatically even up to 50%, worldwide.
HUMAN LABOR WILL SOON BECOM REDUNDANT
The likelihood of losing
tens of MILLIONS of jobs to AI automation around the world in the coming
decades is real, believe it or not. The ZWT proclaims that if we are to cope
with this future Technological Unemployment, we need new kinds of occupations
for those people, or a completely new perspective of human purpose in life. THE
HUMAN LABOR LIKELY TO BECOME REDUNDANT IN THE NEAR FUTURE. Instead of a
dystopian Sci-fi vision of chaos and destruction, we need to look forward
optimistically to a society of affluence and abundance of goods and
services WITHOUT THE NEED OF HUMAN LABOR to produce them
. UNFORTUNATELY HOWEVER, WHEN THE ZERO WORK THEORY (ZWT) WAS
ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IT IN 1981, EXPERTS AT THAT TIME, DISMISSED IT WITHOUT A
SECOND GLANCE. Now is the time to revisit ZWT!
The ZWT Historical
Perspective on HUMAN WORK or LABOR
The historical PERSPECTIVE
of the Zero Work Theory, on the HUMAN WORK Or LABOR basically contradicts from
those who glorify the human work or labor as the provider of self-identity,
dignity, respect meaning, purpose and everything good for human beings in their
life. Ironically, both the Capitalist as well the Communists somehow share this
same vision that includes most of today’s leading experts and social pundits.
They don’t accept the prospect of human labor getting redundant by the new
technology is instead fallaciously argue that the same new technology will
create abundance of new jobs for the humans to work side by side with the
robots, at least for the foreseeable future.
However, the Zero
Work Theory basically proclaims that human-labor, originally imposed by
nature on them in order to obtain their means of subsidence (lively hood, wages),
which is the ROOT CAUSE OF HUMAN EXPLOITATION and most of the evils that
humankind have been undergoing so far in the history. In the past,
the progress in science and technology that increased labor productivity has
helped the working class to get gradual reduction in working hours in the
day or week and shall continue to do so. The end-game of this reduction in work
should be the ZERO WORK DAY. The progress in the field of science and
technology ultimately will make THE HUMAN WORK, OBSOLETE OR REDUNDANT and
should be completely abolished sooner than later. It is the best thing for the
human society to happen. In the future humankind will become FREE from the
compulsion and the drudgery of their work-labor-slavery. Thereby, establishing
a new equitable income distribution egalitarian socio-economic system in which
all human needs, wants, comforts, and luxuries should be made available,
equally free or affordable for everyone.
On the other hand, futurist
pundits envisage that the “TECHNOLOGICAL-UNEMPLOYMENT” that has been
forecasted; is A NEGATIVE OUTCOME OF TECHNOLOGICAL PROGRESS. Owning to
their Capitalist and Communist ideologies which virtues human labor as
the necessary part humans happiness, dignity, identify giving purpose and
meaning to human life. Most important of all to run the economy and create
wealth, affluence and abundance in society. They cannot imagine that the same
human labor compulsion can be the root-cause of exploitation resulting in all
evils in the society, therefore, needs to be completely abolished and most
importantly the progress in the science and technology allows humans to actives
all of it. On the contrary they argue, to counter the technological
unemployment society needs to create more labor or employment opportunities,
with some innovative entrepreneurship, inventing completely new types of
jobs, higher education and retraining workers for the new employment, also by
providing a substitute income, commonly known as Universal Basic Income (UBI).
ZWT, very much supports UBI
as an early manifestation of the ZWT. However, its vision of UBI
is somewhat differs from mainstream UBI so it likes to call it as Progressive
or Equitable Basic Income . It views future “Technological Unemployment”,
AS THE POSITIVE OUTCOME of the technological progress, and welcomes it.
On the other hand the future pundits even while they fully support the UBI
still view the Technological Unemployment as the NEGATIVE OUTCOME;
therefore, UBI is needed as a remedy, mainly to lift people
above the poverty or to prevent more falling below the poverty line, due to widening
of the income gap.
Universal Basic Income(UBI)
general public today, is not yet prepared to accept UBI replacing employment.
Many express deep anxiety of losing employment, irrespective of UBI. They still
believe that losing a job means the loss of self-identity, dignity and life
purpose. They have been misled to believe that all of humanity exists simply to
work or provide service to others. In this worldview, having no work jobs to do
make people lazy they lose meaning in life, they should have no purpose in life
other than looking for a new servitudeor jobs.
A primary task for ZWT is
to make the public understand UBI, to make them aware that accepting UBI is the
beginning of the emancipation of humankind from the drudgery of labour, wage-slavery.
In the coming decades, the human race will enter a new era of abundance. The
main occupation of humankind in the future, should be the fulfilment of human
needs, wants, comforts and luxuries. Without the burden of work, all kinds of
entertainment and pleasure can be had by all. We need to prepare the public to
be conscious of this future.
The Predication Of Human
Future In The Past.
In the past human history
wise men, innovative future thinkers, scientists, and philosophers predicted the
way that humans would live in the future; whether it is ON EARTH OR IN HEAVEN. In
only since the last century, as our society has been progressed in science and
technology, the predictions of the future have reflected this focus. Since the
second half of the 19th century predictions of a “Brave New
World” have become dominant. As Socialism, Communism and Fascism rose and fell, the
electoral democracy became more reliable or acceptable. Our view of the future
reflected these real influences.
Since second half of the 20th century,
new social theories were fuelled by technological progress and social
influences like feminism and the New World Order. In the 1980’s, a new vision
of our future reflected the unfolding of the cybernetic revolution:
nanotechnology, 3D printing, and quantum computers.
As we entering the last
part of second decade of the 21st century, we see a new breed of
future pundits who predict massive Technological Unemployment in the
future but at the same time they argue the new technology will create new
jobs to replace all the old one. Prominent scientists, academics, IT
professionals, Silicon Valley billionaires, mainstream magazines and
publications trying to move towards this consensus view of the
future. Human workers and the AI robots harmoniously co-exist in the future
industries. Yet, while many thinkers see the same problems, none offer a clear
vision or plan on what kind of work, job or occupation most of
the human population or the “common man” will be engaged in their day to day
life in coming decades.
Futurists Not Yet Prepared
For The Common Man’s Future.
Futurists predict that new
technology will create new jobs, replacing those lost to
“Technological-Unemployment”. They argue, “65% of children entering
primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types
that don't yet exist”. What these jobs are, though, is unclear. Rather than an
analysis of the economy or arising trends in the workforce, it seems these new
employment opportunities predictions are based on little more than hope.
The experts argue that
robots will merely replace simple, unskilled labor, or the repetitive
predictive work however, the technology cannot replace creative jobs (knowledge
work). Surprisingly, however, the jobs of physicians, surgeon, nursing, lawyer,
journalist, even the teachers, musicians, which we assumed to be creative,are
already being performed in limited ways by robots and artificial intelligence.
In the coming decades, robots will expand the extent of their work in these
areas. All too quickly, they are likely to take over most of these jobs.
The fundamental question
now before us is; Are there new jobs or occupations that can be performed by
the majority of people (relatively unskilled, uneducated), that will exist in
sufficient numbers, and cannot be taken over by robots in the coming years? In other words, will there
emerge some new needs, wants and demands from humans that CANNOT be
SERVICED and fulfilled by the robots?
Experts have not been able
to clearly identify such occupations so far. In the past, progress in
science and technology always led to new jobs therefore the logical view is; if
it happened in the past, it will be repeated again.” Experts and politicians
are not daring to think outside of the box, with which their ideals of Politically Correctness does not
IN 1981, WHEN I PROPOSED
REDUCTION IN WORKING HOURS, ZERO WORK THEORY FOR THE COMMON PEOPLE OF THE FUTURE;
ALMOST ALL OF THOSE EXPERT PUNDITS AT THAT TIME WOULD HAD DISMISSED IT WITHOUT
A SECOND GLANCE.NOW I THINK THE SAME WILL HAPPEN TODAY TO THIS ZWT-II,
WHICH PROPOSES; ALL KINDS OF ENTERTAINMENT AND PLEASURES WILL BECOME THE
MAIN OCCUPATION OF THE COMMON MAN IN THE COMING ZERO WORK SOCIETY, PRECEDED
BY THE UBI LED SOCIO-ECONOMIC POLITICAL REVOLUTION.
Future Human Occupations
How can the common people
all permanently receiving the UBI will manage to spend their lives without a
job or employment in the Zero Work Society? The optimisticanswer
could be they will spend most of their entire life in full of entertainment and
festivities all day long, all their life, if they like it in that way. However,
futurists cringe at this idea thinking it makes the common people damnlazy,
everybody leisurely sitting at home watching cable TV like couch potatoes or
browsing the internet or engaged in pleasure activities, isn’t an image of the
In the future pundits’
crystal balls, the future is very cloudy for the common people. Therefore,
instead of envisioning the kind of day to day job or occupations of common
people for the NEXT TWENTY TO THIRTY YEARS, they suddenly jump to the “Star
Wars” like imagination of how the elite will live in the NEXT HUNDRED TO TWO
HUNDRED YEARS. Going to Moon or Mars (Planetary travel) they
think as the most pleasurable (profitable) activity that their humans will be
occupied in the future. They foresee the abundance of energy,
combined with super-materials, leading to the creation of Mega cities. The
educated elite that today live in million dollar condominiums will live in even
taller buildings, with automated homes and robots serving their every need. The
wealthy will have flying cars, travelling into the outer space, colonize other
planets, engaged in mind-expanding Transhumanism and enter the Singularity.
Yet, they will still have
time to ponder over how the ordinary people will spend their day to day life
time. Most, probably will work in some kind of jobs which pays them a good
salary instead of merely wasting their time watching too much TV and paying the
bills with their UBI. The reminder comes following our
Sci-Fi movies projecting a dystopian future for the common people that
they should be afraid of eternally. THE POLITICALLY CORRECT ‘FUTURE
PUNDITS DON’T SEE THINGS WHEN THEIR SALARIES DEPEND ON NOT SEEING IT.
This scenario, clearly
illogical and prejudiced, is why the ZW Theory makes it a primary task to raise
awareness of the coming joblessness and help society accept the UBI, this is
the beginning of emancipation of human race from the drudgery of labour,
wage-slavery. We should prepare the public for this future. Human society must
undergo radical economic, political, and cultural change before it can settle
in with an equitable UBI.
UBI Will Lead To Profound Socio-Economic Change: Political
As the world nations start
to face growing Technological Unemployment, they will be
compelled to implement some or the other kind of UBI/PBI
programs.It will make a large number of people to abandon their
meaningless jobs resulting in great increase in wages and automation.The
majority will eventually depend on UBI as the main source of their income. This
provides great opportunity of FREE TIME for the majority population across the
globe. One of the primary reasons for political non-participation MAINLY due to
lack of time, will go away, more and more people will join in the democratic political
process by voting on every major issues.
The big question is; how
the Government can afford such a huge amount of UBI to
pay? The ZWT-II answer is; LET EVERYONE, RICH OR
POOR, UNCONDITIONALLY PAY AN EQUAL OR UNIFORM AMOUNT (SAY 30% ) OF INCOME TAX AND IN RETURN SHOULD
RECEIVE AN EQUAL AMOUNT OF UNCONDITIONAL UNIVERSAL BASIC
INCOME. This would make the UBI equitable and meaningful for all purpose.
Money plays crucial role in
our present day politics, corrupting the electoral process, manipulating voting
outcome or the results. Elections are mainly funded by the capitalist money,
the root of corruption in the politics. It should be banned; instead every
eligible voters should be allocated certain amount of money which they can
transfer to whichever candidate, who they think represents their interest. So
to ensure a FREE AND FAIR election.
The FREE TIME in the zero
work society will allow the large population to unite and OCCUPY
themselves in the political arenaof all decision
making. Political involvement and activism of the masses is already happening
where there is easy access to an internet connection. ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY
PLUS FREE TIME in the era of UBI, will bring propound socio-economic change and
political REVOLUTION. Most importantly, as robots rise and more citizens have
free time, the internet will become the method for bringing together activists,
who will undoubtedly focus on more equitable income distribution, not just for
elites but for all people.
Strengthening of democratic
principles, protecting the fundamental human rights of the INDIVIDUAL
especially the FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AGAINST imposition of majority
power/opinion will become crucial. This is a vast subject matter, here I will
leave it to the experts in political science to expand on this theme, even
though they have failed so far to put forward a clear political vision for
human society in the coming decades.
Most import of all, the ZWT
sees the UBI as the FORERUNNER or HARBINGER of the
upcoming profound SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC REVOLUTION. The present economic
pattern of top 10% population owning more than 90% of the wealth will be
abolished, in its place a more equitable egalitarian economic system, primarily
aimed at the redistribution ofwealth and equitable
income. will be established
According to the ZWT, the
Marxian Socialist Revolution failed mainly because (similar to the capitalist
society) its inherent inability to eliminate the human labor exploitation
especially the day to day hardship and suffering on the labouring population at
the lower social stratus. Now, the great progress in the technology (AI robots)
rendering the human labour exploitation absolute, will give the humanity the
great opportunity to replace the brutal wages, profit disparity income making
system with an adequate UBI distribution system.
The present day risk taking
business entrepreneurship for profit making inefficient system will be replaced
by the highly efficient day to day decision making QUANTUM computers
system. People with the capacity, ability and talent will be selected to
run the industries, businesses and the economic system IRRESPECTIVE of how much
money, wealth they possessed or inherited in the past.
Huge Increase In Human Life
As science and technology
progress in the coming decades, there will be tremendous advancement in medical
health science, genomics etc. New drug therapies, Nano-medicines, and genetics
research will be able to cure almost all diseases including Cancer, Diabetics,
heart disease etc. The human lives could surpass 150 years with
the upcoming ANTI-AGING DRUGS. Growing older may become a choice, rather
Humanity will enter a new
era of abundance. The future purpose of human life should be the fulfilment of
every human need, want, comfort, leisure and HEALTH. All kinds of
entertainment or pleasure should be available and affordable for the common
people under the equitable economic redistribution scheme of PBI or Basic
Income. If we put the progress in science and technology into a single word, it
would be “disruption” in every sphere. The old morals, taboos, and limits will
be completely revamped and overturned.
Besides the above mentioned
socio-economic, political and the health empowerment of the common people, the
ZWT in its horizon sees the majority of the population in the
future with the UBI entitlement will mostly abandon their jobs or employment
to join into the Zero Work Society. They will be engaged in all kinds of
pleasures and entertainment as the MAIN OCCUPATION of their day to day
life. Specially in things like Food, Sex, Recreational
drugs. Choosing to live in the past, human body mind capacity enhancement. And,
of course, all of the thousands of hobbies which will become popular in the
Zero Work Society.
Zero Work Society:
Common People MAIN OCCUPATION Food, Sex And Drugs
(WARNING: some readers may
find my following ZWT future vision offensive; readers discretion is advised.)
Throughout the history,
food, sex, recreational drugs were the primary source providing the most basic
pleasures to the humankind, which remains very true even today. In the past
century the industrial and the electronic revolution has invented plentiful of
visual, auditory and illusionary web of entertainments; even though, very
powerful they cannot replace the basic pleasures of the food, sex, and the
Common people believe the
rich can enjoy all the pleasures of food, sex etc. Ironically however, nature has prevented people (specially the wealthy)
to enjoy these pleasures fully or adequately, sometimes, even to its minimal
because of its threat of causing serious health issues, diseases and death.
Nevertheless, majority people go in pursuit of money and wealth, the main
currency to buy those primary pleasures. Unfortunately, despite making/having
lots of money, their health deprives them from enjoying these most basic
biological desires and pleasures that humans can have. Nonetheless, they
continue to accumulate wealth, hoping their children will enjoy those pleasures
with their inherited wealth. But thesordidtale
repeats again. Now with the advent of new medicines the problem of over-weight,
diabetics, heart diseases, and other problem like sexual dysfunction will
disappear in the future. Thereby a new era in human society will emerge in
which all people will be able to enjoy all those primary or basic human
pleasures thoroughly without fear or apprehensions.
Indulging in all sorts of
foods and drinks to its fullest will become one of the main occupation of
the future public that was deprived to the common people in the past.
People will try whatever food they like. Seeking every culinary delight
and whatever amount they like to eat without any fear of overweight. They
may become more creative, if not expert chefs. Instead of readymade food, they
will start preparing their own food, experimenting different kinds in
dining varieties that never heard today. In the next stage, people may become
innovative and start to grow their own food in their garden or they may create
new taste sensation by printing food through 3D technology. Hundreds of
new food and drink items having novel taste, smell and flavours not yet known
can be explored.
Sexual revolution or
liberation will be the “next big thing”. If people want to experience any form
of sex they are interested in, they will have the opportunity. Most
importantly, they will be able to enhance their body/mind capacity to its
fullest for enjoying the carnivorous pleasure of sex to the maximum
extent. A sexologist may write volumes of it.
Premature ejaculation, premature
ejaculation, frigidity will become a thing of the past, people able to stay
engaged in sex continually for hours together, if they like without any sort of
negative health impact. We may go beyond merely remaining young and have the
ability to change body shape, gender or colour as we like. Sexual
discrimination based on age, race, colour gender, will vanish. More people
willing to have sex than refraining from it.
Sexual taboos, stigmas that
we have today will be removed. Of course, for those who want it, AI humanoid
sex-bots will be built to satisfy human sexual desires, especially for that
portion of humanity that has physical or mental barriers to more conventional
forms of sex. However, as sex-bots become more common, many people today may
wonder how their owners will fit into society.
The main recreational drug
today is alcohol, tobacco, cannabis,heroin will
be redesigned or replaced with the advanced safe and healthy
recreational drugs having no negative health effect but can produce
unimaginable mind bending ecstasy, perpetual euphoria, spiritual bliss without
causing the addiction, harms or diseases like the old drugs. Many people
will choose these psychedelic drugs than to have the technological
Virtual/Augmented Reality mechanical sets over their head. Here, I leave
most of it to the experienced experts in those drugs to tell more of it.
In the 20th century
many human behaviours accepted as normal which were considered to be extremely
dangerous, evil and immoral in the old 19th century. Similarly,
the behaviours which we consider very dangerous evil and immoral today, will be
accepted as quite normal in the coming decades of the 21st century.
For example, walking naked in the street is a criminal behaviour today but will
become normal behaviour tomorrow.
People Choosing To Live In
The Past As Human SURVIVORS.
Futurists predict mega
cities with sophisticated buildings, environments in which everything is
self-contained, where people never need to leave home to do work as they communicate
wirelessly with their employer, bosses, friends and families around the world . The
home will become a cocoon that provides for all of our needs including
entertainment. ZW Theory predicts that many, if not most, will completely
abandon the modern, mega, sophisticated urban city life and return to
their ancestral roots of living as primitive times. In the forests grounds or
on the tree top canopy, surrounded by wild life, rivers and mountains in tune
with the nature.
The present image of the
world will change. Smart cosmopolitan cities, futurist mega buildings on the
one side many abandoned villages, towns and old cities on the other
side. They will be turned into jungles, savannahs or the vast deserts with
wild life of ancient times. Dinosaurs will come back to life and roam on earth
again for the people to see and enjoy. Of course, all people will be
inter-connected and can travel back and forth past to future if they like or
Human Mind Body Capacity
The tremendous advancement
in the medical science, gene therapy will provide the people with the
great immunity from all diseases also the opportunity to alter their
physical body and mind. Children will be liberated from the drudgery of long
years of school studies imposed by the modern education system. All memories,
knowledge , education skills can be downloaded straight into the human
brain/mind, making them super good. Every human can be as smart talented and intelligent as the other by this
brain computer interphase. People can
become great singers (changing vocal cords) dancers, any kind of super- human
athletics or performance artist scientist as they like. Transhumanism as it is
popularly known. Singularity can transcend the humanity.
Private Property Will Disappear
Along With The Human Labor
society in the history so far has been bedevilled by the scarcity of goods,
services and security. The security against scarcity is having one’s own
territory. It begins with the evolution of species, rooted in the animal
kingdom. Humankind not only seeks their
own territory but also possession of private property for the same old reasons.
Most importantly the human character of SELFISHNESS, greed, EGO arises also for
those same reasons
the olden days private property means land and labor resources, in the modern
age MONEY has mostly replaced it. Human labour is a unique thing, intricately
connected to scarcity of goods and generating money. People are mostly PREOCCUPIED
with making money. Making more and more money has become the goal of human life.
If you don’t have money you have to labor to earn it. Make more and more money
get rich and wealthy so one can escape from the hardship of labor on the
progress in the Science and technology enables society to produce the Goods and
services in more efficient ways. The advancement in the AI robotic will makes it, the new world working class replacing human
workers as it gets far more better than the human workers in every respect. It
can produce the goods and services in such an abundances without the need of
human labor. As the human labor compulsion, bondage, servitude disappear, the private
property, money, scarcity will follow suit.
In the past years, I have
read thousands of articles, YouTube etc. videos, published by the IT
professional future experts, social
ethics academic Pundits panels stories about
the rapid progress in the science and technology, specially in the field AI
robots its great future business opportunities also its impending doom of human
job disruptions. However, the future workforce, HR specialists and other
experts keep on promising the public that new technologies will create new jobs.
Therefore people needs to be prepare for this new kind of job transition.
Retrain or get more education for qualifying themselves for the new jobs. The students
should go to more and higher cognitive human centric education so there will be
enough better paying jobs for the future generation to enjoy their life.
However from the ZWT point
of view; “these future experts ARE MISLEADING THE PUBLIC”. My main point is,
there is no more need of human labor or jobs as we see today for the
industries, business, economy and society to run. In the coming decades, human
labor will become redundant as the result of this rapid science and technological
Therefore, the main task of
the ZWT-II is to make the public aware that the MAIN OCCUPATION for the common
man in the coming decades most importantly to be engaging in the Social,
Economic and Political including the Intellectual EMPOWERMENT OF THE
COMMON PEOPLE. ZWT foresees the necessity of the Guaranteed Income distribution
programme like UBI as the forerunners of
this propound social change or REVOLUTION. People in their everyday life will
be free to engage in full-time engagement of whatever kind of legally accepted entertainment
they like. All kind of pleasures especially; food, sex, drugs, sports,
intellectual pursuits etc., will become dominant occupation of the common
people, opposed to the compulsion of labor, job or employment. Unfortunately,
the Future Pundits who like to remain
“Politically Correct” DO NOT SEE IT BECAUSE THEIR SALARIES DEPEND
ON NOT SEEING IT.
Of course, there will be plentiful
of leasure, entertainment for people to spend their time. Audio
visual, social media, TV, movies, AR, VR etc., which I did not feel necessary
to mention because it is already very well known to the people. The Future
experts need to show the public objectively how the future will unwind ahead of
us when there will be no jobs for the people to engage in. Most importantly, they needs to take the
risk of envisioning the everyday occupation of the average man and woman in the
near future of 10, 20 or 30 years that most of us will going to see and
experience in our life time rather than jumping to the next 100 or 200 years.
Finally, I don’t deny that
the exponential growth in the science and technology can pose some serious
existential threat to the human society. However, we don’t have any real option
but to be optimistic that the humanity will find some way or solutions to
overcome it in the future.
