i just don't get how so many people seem to be capable of saying "we need to artificially create work that doesn't need to be done so that people have jobs" with a straight face

"automation is bad because people will lose jobs" excuse me? you may want to consult your nearest 6 year old on this one

@xnx38h in my experience most people saying this have made the experience that not many people can live a dignified life in our society without a job. So I believe the problem is that they don't believe that such a society could exist or that the remaining work would be split in a fair manner.
And let's be real that's a big possibility if it's not done right. But automation will come anyways so it also is a self fulfilling prophecy...
