He’s trolling them now:
I’d like to show up to other candidates’ events and ask them what they think about Universal Basic Income. ???— Andrew Yang (@AndrewYang) May 24, 2019
If you are wondering why this “hate site” is so pro-Andrew Yang (the mainstream media’s terminology, not mine), it is because Yang is the king of the nerds and we have always loved this nerd stuff. Pretty much all we do here is analyze the news, politics, history, economics, etc.
We’ve always liked to sit back, observe, listen to the ideas and arguments, reason our way to our own conclusions and then make our own decisions about politics. In this case, we think Andrew Yang is right about the disruptive impact on the technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution (artificial intelligence, automation, robotics, etc.) and we also agree this is going to be (actually, it already is) an unmitigated catastrophe for the working class and middle class of all races unless policymakers start addressing the problem now. I’ve compared it to a Category 5 hurricane coming at Middle America. When a major hurricane is coming at you in the South, you drop what you are doing and act accordingly.
Yang has earned himself a lot of credit in our eyes for drawing our attention to the problem. We had neglected to think about the ways that technological change would impact our future. It’s like trying to think about the future in the 20th century from the world of the horse and buggy. Shit happened in the 20th century like electricity, splitting the atom and the computer that changed everything. A century ago, virtually everyone in this area was a dirt poor sharecropper or tenant farmer struggling with the advance of the boll weevil while suffering from hookworms, pellagra, malaria, polio, etc. Jim Crow was the law of the land. Could those people have imagined our world in 2019?
There are lots of people in the White Nationalist movement who are stuck in the RAHOWA mindset who have not considered the ways in which technological change will alter the future. In the future, everyone is going to be vastly inferior to AI and robots will do more and more of the work. We’re inevitably hurtling toward a world in which inequality is going to become undeniable as the old liberal paradigm breaks down. We’re actually moving back toward a Slave Society without even being conscious of it.
Note: If you doubt what I am saying about the power of technology to transform the world is true, I would suggest counting the number of horses and mules in your area. It will give you some perspective on how radically the world can change when entire species become useless.
joking/not joking at the thought of our current discredited political establishment trying to navigate the rise of China, it’s ongoing war against angry, disaffected White people in Middle America and the most dramatic technological revolution in history without sinking in the process
