4. When a robot creates something of value...

who is going to buy it?

The worker has been replaced - but so has the consumer.

Why produce anything at all if no one can consume it?

Henry Ford started paying his workers enough to buy his product. He created both the product and the consumer. You need both.

We can ALL benefit from automation, robotics and technology.

You just have to expand your world view.
