Kurzweil: The market will solve scarcity and hierarchy April 20, 2011Posted by Summerspeaker in Technology, The Singularity, Transhumanism.
The fact I can afford a cell phone apparently negates any complaints against the manifest inequality of the present economic system. Kurzweil talks about abundance but doesn’t engage with the concept in any meaningful away. Abundance isn’t trickle-down technology for consumers. Ey also makes a joke about the U.S. military beating up the Amish as analogy for war between the enhanced and unenhanced. Keep it classy, Kurzweil.
