LISTEN NOW! (Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM!) These truly are amazing days. When we look at the continual advancements of technology taking place all throughout the world, it is clear to recognize that we are getting close to the end. As we look at Elon Musk’s recent comments, at the World Government Summit, on the coming changes to our world, most people have no idea many of these developments are already in the works. What people do not consider about new technology, is the human labor that it replaces. More specifically, unemployment.
As Musk talks about the overwhelming arrival of “mass unemployment”, he projects his own possibilities of what will be the answer. “I think, ultimately, we will have to have some kind of universal base of income. I don’t think we’re going to have a choice.” As Musk continues to describe, he addresses the capabilities of robots in the workforce. “There will be fewer and fewer jobs that a robot cannot do better.”
Think about what this implies. Imagine having robot systems that go beyond the awareness of intelligence and now have the ability of rapidly learning on their own. At the onset, new technology looks very appealing, but what about the end result? When we see someone trying to replace your job, they are taking away the empowerment of the value of hard work. Most men find their value in their jobs. God made us to produce and have fruitful lives. Can you imagine millions of people doing absolutely nothing and being consumed with idleness? These are such important days that we are living in. It takes wisdom and much guidance from the Lord to know how to navigate the times and seasons that we are living in.
