The Future Doesn't Need Us... Or So We've Been Told. With the rise of technology and the real-time pressures of an online, global economy, humans will have to be very clever - and very careful - not to be left behind by the future. From the perspective of those in charge, human labor is losing its value, and people are becoming a liability. This documentary reveals the real motivation behind the secretive effort to reduce the population and bring resource use into strict, centralized control. Could it be that the biggest threat we face isn't just automation and robots destroying jobs, but the larger sense that humans could become obsolete altogether? Written by Aaron & Melissa Dykes

Transparent effort to sow discontent among people who are addicted to Victim Mentality
24 October 2020 | by rainbowfascistpartySee all my reviews

Firstly this documentary indulges in the use of the word "slave" to describe people who earn a living wage, and it all only goes downhill from there. (For those of you who are confused about this, you need to educate yourselves on the actual definition of the word "slave".) Self-indulgent liberal BS intended to convince the poor & middle-class that they are perpetual victims who bear no agency in, and, more importantly, *no responsibility for*, the trajectory of their lives; that they are mere puppets of some shadowy "elite" who control their every move. How unfortunate that most of our country now wallows in this pathetic self-indulgent masochistic shame which has no basis in reality. The "perils" outlined by this mockumentary are only bad things if you think that chronic overbreeding is the only purpose of human existence, and how sad for you if you actually do believe that. Bring on the Killer Robots!
