Automation is great. What automation means is that the economy makes more money with less work.
If you automate 75% of the jobs in a country with 0% unemployment, that means that everyone can work a 10 hour week at the same rate of pay they were previously getting for 40 hours. This is what every intelligent economist was predicting 80 or 90 years ago. They were totally right about productivity per hour worked skyrocketing, but they were wrong about owners willingness to share the gains with workers.
It's only bad if you assume that it's impossible for ordinary folks to get a piece of the action.
Yes, it does mean we'll have to riot, but hey, there's a lot to be gained.
