    of course, you're one of the good ones. I'm talking about the fact that we now need to pander to the Romeo Roses' of the internet now, because zaiger really wants that 50,000

    RoRo was broke. He sold his collection of 20 gaudy guitars to pay for a Subway sandwich. Do you think others of RoRo quality would have money either?

    Actually this raises the point that your immigrants are the reason why automation will cause havoc. What to do with the poor idiots who worked the fields before?

    Whitney's invention and proliferation of the cotton gin actually led to the biggest explosion of the importation of African slaves in our history, just so you know. It made cotton as a cash crop suddenly very profitable; and the goal was to grow and harvest as much cotton as possible, because processing was expedited immensely.

    Interesting point. But you still had less field hands actually picking cotton per farm. The increase in slavery was more due to the overall increase in the number of cotton plantations as you suggest. Cotton being a cash crop was more lucrative than food stuffs so natuarally farmers moved to what was more lucrative. You introduce a complex point where slavery meets larger profit crop, meets increased production through machinery.

    However, I don't think you will see an increase in illegal immigration once the automated fruit and vegetable pickers become more available, affordable and more accurate.

    I think a lot of industries will be facing some changes with automation getting better and better. Factories that built cars 50 years ago went through this with the automated assembly lines replacing workers, retail outlets for the last decade have been struggling to keep up with the advent of online shopping, and with a lot of menial jobs going the way of the robot its only a matter of time until we face mass unemployment. There will be some tasks left to humans for sure, but retail, manufacturing, farming as you've pointed out, teaching, even a lot of the health industry will be fully automated before long.
