I am just gonna leave this link here

What if jobs are the problem, not the solution

It made me realize that computerization of large portions of jobs may not be as far fetched and far away as I thought, and imo it should be a mandatory read, and should be seen as a new experience, to look at work from an different angle, and to look at the consequence of doing so, so leave your preconceptions about how "work builds character" at the door before entering.

And remember, Asian school children dominate math, but you know what they don't dominate? Cultural development. Those making culture are not the ones acing math and science and culture is what defines a nation, not it's jobs. Shouldn't this mean that we should strife to educate children so they further our culture and society, and not our economy?

Isn't Trump winning the perfect proof? Everyone puts so much value on jobs, everyone is sad and angry they lost their jobs, instead of creating something new out of that, something that does not benefit the economy, but the society of your nation, your neighborhood even, even if it's based on "entitlements" and even if you have to sustain yourself on a slightly lower luxury level... mhh, food for thought.
