Don't Get Fooled Again By Trump's Stated Intention To "Bring Back" Increasingly Roboticized Jobs

Alan: If any "jobs" do "come back" from overseas, they will be mostly robotic.

Automation And Job Loss.
As Bad As It Looks?

After a full century in which The United States had cornered world markets and consistently controlled earth's raw materials, we are witnessing the just (and inevitable) re-allocation of global resources now that previously-excluded countries have "a place at the table."

For "conservatives," it is irresistibly attractive to see the loss of white American privilege as "oppression" by dark-skinned people.

Whites Think Discrimination Against Them Is A Bigger Problem Bias Against Blacks

Notably, very few white Americans who see themselves victimized by workplace marginalization undertake the effort to create new lives for themselves, a process dependent on lifelong engagement of educational opportunity, the kind of education process that coincidentally results in seeing Trump for the autocrat he is. 

But instead of commiting themselves to educated lives oprning on new horizons, meth and alcohol have become the self-medications of choice for people pained by self-imposed ignorance. 

A resounding number of aggrieved whites -- marginalized by The March Of Capitalism -- are content to passively wait on a plutocrat (long habituated to ripping off the working class) who promises the return of high-paying rust-belt jobs which, back in the day, required little more than witless repetitive motion - labor that was rewarded with a high hourly wage. 

In recent decades the central thrust of Capitalism has been the elimination of jobs through automation, robotization of these jobs through software developmentent. (Just wait until self-driving vehicles decimate taxi drivers, delivery people and long-haul teamsters.) 

What self-respecting Robber Baron would not consider the prospect of no workers to pay nor benefits to finance as the peak climax of their stunted imaginations? 

"To get all that money you must be dull enough to want it."
G.K. Chesterton

Even in those countries where "real jobs" migrated in recent decades, rapid robotization is eliminating the brief employment boom that resulted from "outsourcing."

We no longer live in a world of Mom and Pop corner stores and savings-and-loan banks operated by Jimmy Stewart.

Rather, we are immersed in the domain of cutthroat capitalists who deliberately crafted the economic collapse of 2007-2008, with consequent lowering of a typical American's net worth by 40%.

These same jackal-capitalists are now chomping at the bit to enact the NEXT boom-bust cycle, preparing for The Trump Bump to become The Trump Dump.

It does not matter to these porcine people if markets are going up or going down. What matters is the repetitive cycle of Boom-Bust: it is always easier for cutthroat profiteers to make ungodly sums of money -- as Trump himself boasts -- by capitalizing on debt, bankruptcy and "bad markets."

And now, in a rocket burst of irony, the same whites who have long looked down their noses insisting that black people "get a job," are now furiously aggrieved that they themselves cannot get jobs.

Alan: Millions of Deplorables voted for Trump as the only candidate in whom they could see themselves - angry, ignorant, incuriously stupid, punitive, arrogant, fatuous, untruthful, deluded by "lofty principles," prioritizing visceral passion over Reason, convinced that authoritarian violence is a panacea, besotted with materialism and vengefully spiteful"Deplorable" is much too good a word for the essentially hateful people who voted for Trump.
