Robot armageddon nigh!

Shocking as this video may be, this is mankind's fate in the not too distant future according to Prof. S.Beast of Canada.

The overthrow of man will begin innocently enough in the next 5 years, according to Prof. Beast:

With self driving cars we are almost there, less than five years away. Think of all those truck drivers, taxi drivers, bus drivers, and couriers. All out of work simultaneously. They make up a huge chunk of the economy. Actually pretty much the entire retail sector is going to be wiped out. Just picture Amazon with robots working in their warehouse and other robots delivering everything. They are going to have to tax the robots. Hopefully with enough tax revenue from the robots we can have lots of "slackers" living a decent life off the system. Because the way things look our economy will no longer have enough jobs to support all the people living in our societies. To look beyond these facts is both foolish and ignorant.

A bold prediction to be sure as retail is responsible for the most jobs in the United States:

And driving employs 3% of us as well:

The economic system will be unable to absorb these huge numbers of unemployed, resulting in an all out war for survival on the planet between displaced workers and their robot overlords. (as seen in video)

GStandroid, a possible mechanized harbinger of the future, echoes Prof. Beast's dire prognostication:

If you want work, Elon Musk will probably have a job for you establishing his Mars colony.

Once that is up and running It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the USA shipped its jobless unwanted poor off to mars just like England sent their unwanted to America centuries before.

Although space travel costs millions of dollars per person, paradoxically GStandroid feels the USA will send the millions of poor to Mars rather than a prison colony like Australia.

Run for your lives, rich or poor!

The age of our metal gods has begun!!!!
