With the means of production in its hands, the billionaire class will fully decouple itself from the rest of the society after full automation. It will mark the total breaking of the social contract. Now, imagine what could happen next with a tiny elite possessing armies of killer robots and weapons of mass destruction in an overpopulated planet with almost drained natural resources.
The Jimmy Dore Show When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.
