Humans are the only creature that considers skill levels or intelligence paramount than work ethic. All other social creature do not do that and still feed society as a whole just fine.
So what? When Gates or Jobs (deceased) can perform everything on their own, then they do not exploit the surplus labor of their employees and can enjoy the entire profit and deservedly so with a clear conscious. If they need others to execute profit then you have to question why more should be given to an idea then manual labor when both skills were required for the thing to be made and the possibility of profit to materialise.
Well, you will have the robots soon B0ycey. AI, or Artificial Intelligence. They will step in and do the menial labor. The lumpen will be obsolete. Then Blackjack's genetic engineering will go in and splice in some instructions with oxidation of locii of the proteins in the instructions and a dumb Black low IQ man can be 're-programmed' to be a white genius. Voila...the world is better. Lol.
No, they need to seriously examine how to start structuring the economies of the many nations not doing well under capitalist systems that are underdeveloped. They need to question why people's wages have stagnated since the mid seventies in the USA as Stig dude that @late favors states...and figure out if they continue with that bullshit how long before it implodes?
No, it won't implode because a tiny chart with no explanation about the 0% poverty rate by 2050 is gospel truth and capitalism did it! And Jobs is a damn genius. Jobs also allowed his daughter and his ex girlfriend to be on welfare and live in poverty as he made huge amounts of money because he was about control and power....more than compassion and being responsible for other people in his life.
He was hated by a lot of ex employees for lack of ethics. People are complex. Jobs was also adopted and his Syrian bio father was an irresponsible man who never took responsibility for many things.
People are complex. Not simplistic. But there are a lot of people who think masses of people being lifted out of poverty worldwide and fighting the root causes of poverty and inequality is going to happen easily.
No, it won't. It is primarily a fight to the death about PRINCIPLES. Human principles and values. And how one emphasizes what is important in human beings.
You would be surprised how great things get in life when you have cooperation, and hard work, respect and dedication and sharing with others in this world. A whole lot of issues get solved. What is problematic are the selfish, the individualistic in the extreme, the ones attached to possessions and willing to do whatever to relationships because they want possessions and have the false belief that accumulation of wealth is power that lasts and human relationships are the things that betray you in this world. It is the opposite. The relationships are the seats of power and the possessions are worthless.
But who knows how long it will take the capitalists to respect that? Millenia? I don't think so.
