How Is Silicon Valley Preparing For Mass Automation?

"Most humans won't have any saleable labor in the future", said one ex-techie in the video below.

"Techies can see that the future is coming and they are reacting to that future".

What is that future: automation.

The result is a big rise in unemployment and it has some folks in Silicon Valley "terrified", especially people with money and/or resources to lose. One venture capitalist in the video below refers to what's coming as the new French Revolution.
 

This is an enlightening video about how some ex-Silicon Valleyers, the coders of automation, are preparing for the next 20 years.

What do they fear: biological weapons, nuclear war, economic collapse.

What are Silicon Valleyers collecting: guns, renewable energy, food, generators, masks, health supplies

Silicon Vs Doomsday Prepper

Even though techies are buying $500k bunkers and guns like the stereotypical "doomsday prepper", they are also doggedly focused on "quality of life". Many of them view what's coming as the "new economy" rather than "the coming apocalypse".

Perhaps the most persuasive aspect of the "techie prepper's" argument is that unlike the typical "doomsday prepper", these are the men and women that were hired to create a program for the average American job, which is to say they know what they're talking about. In other words, if the guy sitting next to me on the plane is scared, I'm ordering a drink. If the flight attendant is scared, I'm ordering two drinks, reading the emergency manual and saying my prayers.

Translation: A techie warning about the impact of automation is far more reliable than the average guy sitting next to you on the plane, even if that guy claims to have biblical proof (prophesies always tend to be off by a few years).

So who's the pilot of the tech world and what's s/he got to say about flight status?

There are many noteworthy pilots in the tech world, but Elon Musk is among the best. Here's a quick clip on what he thinks about the impact of automation.


This is a data driven response to a fair question about the impact of automation around the world. His directness is both refreshing and startling in its implication.

What I like about the tech version of the coming "apocalypse" is that it is surprisingly optimistic. Instead of scripture, prophecy or fake news, techies are basing their prediction on data. They know that what's on the other side of the hump is a time period when people are not valued for their work. For some this is a terrifying prospect, even for the techie, but for others it is a kind of Eden. To gain value from your own self-betterment and the betterment of mankind is both noble and obtainable when much of the work is being done for you by machines. Now, we just just need to reclaim the stolen wealth accumulated by central banks -- enter crypto -- and use that as the basis for universal income.

Final Thoughts: "Prepping" for the future brings together two profiles often depicted as being diametrically opposed. This unlikely coalition is starting to form the backbone of a movement. And, this notion that techies are somehow responsible for the downfall of society is as ridiculous as blaming war on the soldiers that fight it. Automation is an inevitable conclusion to market demand.
