AI, or artificial intelligence, presents an existential challenge for nationalists as indeed it does for the entire human race. If you’re a worker who bitches about your job but needs the money anyway then very shortly you won’t be. It shan’t be foreign invaders taking our jobs, but science. Moreover, it is of no solace knowing that this problem is a product of White man’s magic.
By 2050, a third of all jobs will be replaced by automation. The grunt tasks, the sum total for many and the last refuge of the dispossessed worker won’t even be available on Gumtree. The fast-food industry is on track to becoming fully automated, as is manufacturing, or whatever is left of it anyway. In fact, some are calling what awaits an ‘automotive tsunami’.
Right now, the picking and packing process at Amazon is conducted increasingly by Kiva robots. Non-robots still employed by Amazon are expected to work like machines in conditions that are widely reported to be, well, inhuman. These robots will soon, no doubt, be tasked with informing their less-efficient organic-counterparts that their services are no longer required. This style of robot isn’t limited to identifying boxes, sorting and stacking them — it is currently learning how to build houses. After that, all those oppressive skyrise blocks that give so much joy to defecating pigeons will be built by artificial labour. Indeed, robots will be tasked with manufacturing robots, which sets the scene for a dystopian Terminator-style scenario given the damned things grow in intelligence as rapidly as they out-skill us.
However, it is not only menial work, or dirty jobs which are soon to be replaced by the hyper-dextrous and visually ultra-perceptive automatons, Tesla presently produces cars that operate on autopilot and this kind of technology will also surely replace taxi drivers, truck drivers, and anyone who earns a crust by sitting at the wheel of a moving vehicle. Happily, that surely spells the end of Uber drivers.
Call centres are phasing in intelligent software which so perfectly mimics humans that it actually learns from its mistakes, unlike so many bipeds we could name. But it is not just the blue-collar folk and those nuisance operators in hectic call-centres that need to worry: a more accurate medical diagnosis can be made by computers and as you can imagine boffins are tinkering with the concept of robotic surgeons. Machines, in the forms of drones etc, are already doing our killing for us so you can scratch half the jobs where you can expect to earn a quid from being cannon fodder for Zionist wars. The end of lovable fraudsters such as Bernie Madoff is nigh as AI stock-trading programs begin to flood the finance sector. About the only jobs that we can think of that won’t be in imminent danger of being taken over by robots are athletes and prostitutes. No, scratch that last one too, the bonk-a-tron androids are already in production although it remains to be seen what corrosive effects bodily fluids might have on them. The biggest growth sector in jobs will be those who write code for the robots, but that area of employment will no doubt have its own use-by date as well.
If you believe this a natural progression of science and that Aldous Huxley and H.G. Wells were on the money by foreseeing a brave new age of abounding leisure for humanity, as cancer is cured and stress relieved for good-and-all then think again.
Eradicating the need for back-breaking labour or tedious repetition doesn’t automatically satisfy Maslow’s pyramid of human needs. A life of recreation and philosophical diversion is by no means guaranteed.
Maybe there are benefits in all of this, but there is no necessity. Understandably, most people hate their jobs. They would be mad not to. If your work is rigorous or repetitive you would no doubt happily chuck it in and go to the pub. But what would you throw it in for? The only thing keeping folks in these crappy jobs is money. When automation replaces human labour then the only ones raking in the green-stuff — having broken down that last wall of efficiency in productivity — will be the same one-per cent of greed-heads currently fattening their waistlines on our sweat and blood.
Thus, you can see, there is no necessity for this AI revolution, rather a desire. It has always been a desire, ever since a bastard Yank named Frederick Winslow Taylor created the concept of time management by walking around a factory floor with a pad and pen noting how long it took the sweaty workers to do their jobs.
Therefore, the technological singularity (a black hole we cannot see beyond) is not just an existential dilemma but a political imperative for nationalists. Just because we can have this kind of efficiency, do we really need it? Is striving to contain the technological meteor storm, not merely a Luddite impulse but an obligation for nationalist thinkers who see that it is more than race being imperilled here? Surely, it must be on the agenda, otherwise, we are but atavists recreating our time with redundant challenges.
Silicon Valley is at present engaged in an AI arm’s race. Two of the key monetisers of this nightmare are the billionaire stoner Elon Musk, and everyone’s favourite Jewish Big Brother, Mark Zuckerberg. While the technological Utopians and Dystopians are engaged in a dialogue over the good and bad, right and wrong, benefits and drawbacks of AI, nationalists are in peril of becoming as irrelevant as human labour (or even human beings) if we don’t make AI a priority area of policy right away.
This is a bigger task than debating whether or not we have no robots or some robots because most of these robots are coming whether we like it or not. The very rubric that we’ve been trained to live by — work means money which means a roof over our head and food in our bellies — is outmoded. Even a half-blind bin-chicken can see the writing on this wall: that all of this will just amount to amplification of poverty and all the social nightmares to arise from most of a nation with no further use for their own lives.
After all, it all boils down to the same thing, money. Poor people exist because rich people do and robots will take our jobs because rich people must get richer. This is the only ‘necessity’ in the equation.
