‘‘‘Equitism’’’ already Contains a Solution to the Looming AI/Automation Crisis.
We are witnessing a rising tide of public discussion, within the ‘Rocke-Nazi’ ruling-class-owned mass media, of a looming crisis of massive unemployment and even deeper mass impoverishment, in the U.S., and worldwide, due to the burgeoning development and application of “Artificial Intelligence” [“AI”] and related automation and robotics technologies.
No doubt the purpose of these discussions, from the point of view of ‘Rocke-Nazi’ strategy, in accord with their “eugenics”, ‘humanocidal’ plan --
-- is to “soften up” the minds, and the moral sensibilities, of the working/middle-class public to yet another “reason” why, “people are pollution”, and why “massive population reduction”, especially [at first] extermination of the poor, and the uneducated, who have, by being in that condition, “proven” themselves to be “genetically unfit”, is an “objective necessity”.
I would like to humbly point out that the ‘Equitist Reform/Social Revolution’ advocated in this blog, and by Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica, and by the Equitist Advocacy group, already contains a solution to this looming crisis of and for capitalism -- a crisis which reflects potential escalating and accelerating growth in the social forces of production, beyond any possible further containment thereof within the present predominant social relation of social reproduction: the wage-labor/capital-relation.
This looming “AI/Automation/Robotics crisis” is a potential catastrophe for the manner in which human species-nature has developed, so far, within the kind of ‘human phenome’ produced by humanity’s ‘capital-value-praxis’, and for the way in which that human species-nature may react if it fails to concretely transcend that ‘capital-praxis’ as that praxis becomes increasingly ‘impractic[e-]a[b]l[e]’, given a failure of the wage-labor relation to provide sustenance for a growing proportion of the working/middle-class population.
But the human phenome produced, to-date, by the historical praxis of the human species, including its latest, ‘capital[-only]-valuing’ form, has also the potential to innovate new ‘social ontology’, new social relations of social reproduction ‘socio-ontology’ -- a new, higher social relation of production, succeeding and superseding the capital/wager-labor relation as predominant social relation of social reproduction.
‘Generalized Equity’ is our name for our vision of that successor social relation of production, and for the successor system of human-social reproduction arising from it, and on its basis.
Within it, the newly-recognized ‘‘‘Equitist’’’ human right of ‘Citizen Stewardship Equity’ means that all citizens who are participants in a successful, publicly-capitalized producers’ cooperative, competing with others such, will have at least two streams of personal income: (1) compensation for time worked on behalf of the cooperative, and (2) an equal share in the net operating surplus [transformed ‘‘‘profits of enterprise’’’] of that cooperative.
Suppose that the work-time needs of that socialized producers’ cooperative fall-off, because of the democratically-decided application of AI/automation/robotics technology within that cooperative. Then, however the cooperatives’ members decide to share that fall off in work time among themselves, and the corresponding fall-off in their compensation for time worked, they still retain their equal shares in the net operating surplus ‘‘‘profits’’’ of that cooperative. The “individual property” [Marx] of each member of that cooperative “association of producers”, given “good behavior”, is inalienable.
For citizens not owning “individual property” in such a socialized producers’ cooperative, the newly-recognized ‘‘‘Equitist’’’ human right of ‘Citizen Birthright Equity’ would shield them from privation while unemployed.
The ‘Citizen Birthright Equity Trust Funds’ form an inalienable, absolutely-portable social safety net for each person born into ‘Equitable Society’.
These individual ‘Citizen Birthright Equity Trust Funds’ would be funded, in large part, by the ‘Social Rents’ paid, monthly, by the ‘Citizen Stewardship Equity’ socialized producers’ cooperatives, in return for their use of ‘Social Property’, in the form of their means of production, provided to them by the public as ‘Socialized Venture Capital’, from the ‘National Office of the Custodian of Social Property’, via the competing ‘Social Bank’ producers’ cooperatives, chartered by that Office.
