Klevius teenage son proposes removing money all together and make everything free. AI/robotics will make this inevitable anyway - and Klevius doesn't know what to say. Do you?
A world where everything is free - and protected by the anti-fascist negative* Human Rights.
* Read Klevius definition of the negative Human Rights, i.e. the very basic rights in the anti-fascist Universal Human Rights declaration from 1948 on which United Nations was supposed to stand on and for.
Already at the mature age of 12 he replaced Dad with Richard Stallman as his main hero after having been pissed off by the behavior of Apple and Microsoft and their use of the patent-license-copyright* system.
* Do note that much of the "secret" of Japanese high tech production quality stems from a system that historically has been the very opposite to the American one. Much of the US economy today relies on lawyers sucking out whatever there is to get money from patents/copyrights/licenses while thereby also counteracting the interest of the consumers.
As a model for his idea about a free world he used Ubuntu, a free software based on the American, Richard Stallman's GNU project and the Finland-Swede Linus Torvald's invention LINUX (which now runs all the world's fastest supercomputers).
Free software is free as in freedom - not as in free beer - and isn't locked down by a proprietor - meaning freedom to use, modify and share.
We live in a much faster moving world today due to globalization and automation. This means e.g. that politicians may have problem keeping up.
Here the example of globalization/technologization of Africa.
How technology is freeing Africa from 1,400 years of islamic enslavement and genocides.
Poor education, over population and corruption have cursed Africa due to imposed religious abuse.
However, in almost no-time in the 1990s Finland (Nokia) and Sweden (L M Ericson) participated with Africans who freed themselves from the costly task of building an all covering land-line infra-structure. Today China is participating with Africans in a way that is fast making the continent no different from other continents. Only problem being religion/sex apartheid which causes half of the population being busy producing too many children. However, even this will stop in the long run when all African girls get rid of their sex segregated hand cuffs.
This shows have technology can transform and adapt in ways that are both more cost efficient and far more quicker than conventional low grade automation.
In the late 1970s Klevius wrote an article called Automation and basic income. Although it was never approved of being published (still wonder why) it foresaw that automation (digitalization) of processes would anyway inevitably lead to a point where no person was needed for production and administration.
However, what Klevius missed was what a young fresh mind today could see, namely that automation would also make capitalism redundant. Is this what Xi Jinping is at? State controlled freedom during a transitional stage led by heavily supported AI/robotics Rn'D. A state steered dagger given to capitalism for the purpose of committing suicide.
Japanese robots manufactured robots already in the 1980s. And when Klevius used his laptop 18 years ago in San Francisco for making phone calls for free via Skype (thanks to a young Swedish inventor) and to sell and buy shares online, he realized that the robots had already taken over.
We know that everything can be automated just as our brain/Thalamus automates our dealings with our internal and external worlds - see Klevius groundbreaking EMAH theory (1992/1994 and on the web 2004)) which exactly explains what "consciousness" is - and is not.
AI/robotics or automation, call it what you like, can easily produce better CEO's than the existing ones - not to mention board members.
However, they can therefore also produce usefulness within sustainable profit margins.
A new financial/productive system is born - and we need only to keep the vultures away from it during a transition time.
And then capitalism is dead.
Sharia restricts Human Rights and promotes supremacism (drawing 1979 and photo 2012 by P. Klevius).
A free world can only exist under so called negative Human Rights, i.e. rights without content* and therefore immunized against impositional** (positive) "rights". Freedom rights instead of so called "Stalin rights", as some of the agreed rights came to be called when they emanated from the USSR system.
Negative rights can be exemplified with traffic rules. Every participant has exactly the same rights - no matter what s/he drives or if s/he doesn't drive at all.
And limitations necessary to keep it going affect everyone equally.
* I.e. a protected sphere that the individual may fill with whatever - as long as it doesn't clash with the rights of others.
** In traffic as in democracy limitations should only be accepted if necessary in a free system.
