The article titled “F**k U-Scan” (April, 2012) was an insightful look into our current employment situation and the state of automated technology. Yet I feel that the focus of the article antagonized technology when the problem lies in the economic system in which that technology resides.
It should not be our plight to create more mindless jobs with low pay, no benefits, and no purpose. I want robots and computers to replace every mundane, repetitive, and soulless task that is currently occupied by a glassy-eyed debt slave that cannot afford to buy breakfast cereal. Those are jobs for machines, not living breathing human beings with souls, imagination, and feelings.
