Meglomaniac Motherfucker Bill Gates Wants a World Without Humans


It must be fantastic being a multi-billionaire dickhead from a wealthy background who never had a day of hardship in his life, being bailed out by Irish taxpayers for his bonds in Irish banks. It gives you all the time in the world to talk crazy shite that most people, if they did the same in a pub, would be told to go home. I can just see it now. "Bono, I have this idea to put jet engines in the asses of all the giraffes in Africa and fire them as the moon." 

Yes, being Bill Gates means being completely unaccountable for your verbal diarrhoea. In fact, as you are Bill Gates, there is a good chance whatever complete bollox you come out with, will eventually become public policy. 

However, this recent article demonstrates that Bill Gates has no crazed futurology fail-safe switch when it comes to the destiny of mankind. Or in actuality, the future without mankind to be more succinct and direct to the point. 

He has now predicted that many workers will be replaced by software and robots over the next few decades leading to a new age, in which all the labour needed to run civilisation is done by machines, and governments provides us all with a basic income. Thus, leaving us free to pursue our leisure activities. I shudder to think what he even means by leisure activities.

“Software substitution, whether it’s for drivers or waiters or nurses… it’s progressing,” Gates said. “Technology over time will reduce demand for jobs, particularly at the lower end of skill set… 20 years from now, labour demand for lots of skill sets will be substantially lower. I don’t think people have that in their mental model.”

Really now? I do not recall ever seeing your name on an election ballot, and perhaps this small matter of you not being our leader, and therefore have no right to determine our lives might be a bit pedantic of me to bring up, but hey, you always looked like a shifty bastard with serious personality short-comings to me.  I am sorry, but I can't trust you Bill.

One more thing: not all of the human race is as empty and soulless as you. 

You Bill Gates, and the politicians who surround you, are so distant from the full vitality of your humanity at this point, that replacing most of you with a cardboard plate with a face drawn on it would be enough of a robot to replace you lot.

The rest of us have these things called personalities, emotional richness, love, a sense of everyday joy from the experience of little pleasures in life. Many of these are derived from work and developing skills. I have news for you, most people who enter professions such as nursing do it not just for the pay check. Most people ill in hospital do not want to be comforted by a robot with a Microsoft logo on it.

Sit down Bill, as this may come a horrific shock to you. Humans are not just machines. We are much, much more than that.

Now, about the massive taxes we Irish non-robots are forced to pay in order to bail you out. The money is extracted from the labours of some of the same workers you want to exterminate. So even your business model is as fucked as Windows 8.

  3. Great anti-transhumanist rant - love it. While we're at it - live traffic feed robot on the right - I'm am NOT in Melbourne, and don't you dare fekkin bloody well insinuate that I am in that uptight hellhole.
    Imagine if these technological wet dreams do happen - the software is guaranteed to offend everyone's humanity all the time, flesh and blood jobsworths only do it when you encounter one.
