07 July 2016 - Future System

posted Jul 7, 2016, 3:30 AM by Benjamin Bias
Life is inherently not fair. Always remember the wisdom of George Carlin who said, "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that." 

I imagine a future, just a few years from now, where there are two basic types of jobs. There will be a relatively few exceptional jobs which can only be done by disciplined, healthy, and highly intelligent people. Then there will be a few billion jobs which anyone of reasonable health and intelligence could do the work. There will be almost no jobs in the middle where hard work and average intelligence would be enough. 

The best we can do is to create a system where we can still get along in a civilized manner despite most people's contributions being worth very little; and despite a few people's contributions being worth so very much.
