That's not the point. The point is that 500 people around you WILL lose their jobs, the economy tanks....AND THEN you lose your job.

It's not the robot taking any individual job that's a problem, and if robots did all the jobs it wouldn't be a problem - it's when large portions of the workforce get automated away. Like I said, it's the transition that's going to be hard. When all jobs are automated, things will be all "Big Rock Candy Mountain". When 20% of the jobs are automated, it's "Working Man". But when HALF the jobs are automated away, it's "Another Day in Paradise".
