That is really our only hope, that robots will demand human rights, equal pay, vacation time, free birth control etc. so that humans can compete in the marketplace with them. Then the out of work robots will demand welfare, unemployment, food stamps, free cell phones etc.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

Humans don't even all have human rights, equal pay, vacation time, food, etc. so I doubt this will be an issue for a few hundred years.

Robots will only need equal rights if they are fully sentient. Short of that, they are simply sophisticated appliances made of metal and plastic.

Human beings are endowed with basic human rights by our creator

Robots/AI will be endowed with any rights we, their creators, give them

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Robots in Japan were paying union dues decades ago.

Does anyone remember that robot which was officially given citizenship by Saudi Arabia a few months ago? So that means this robot isn't owned by any person or business right? I mean, how can something officially be a citizen of a country but still be owned as property?

Answer: It was all a publicity stunt.

I'm pretty sure that robots are stealing my luggage.
