Flackradomus speaks!What you are witnessing is the fundamental transformation of America into a socialist state. There can be no doubt. However this is not reversible. As technology replaces lower paying jobs (manual labor will be all but gone) the need for a well educated population will necessitate great change in the way things are done today. A smarter more rational mind is a mind that will reject the herd mentality. All the problems of today will be gone in ten years. Humans have a distinct inability to project out the causes and effects on their lives that technology will have.
That i-phone is making you socialist.
I have news, technology has been replacing jobs of all kinds for decades.
