The first round is for acceptance and agreement, 2nd round for arguments, 3rd round for defensive points and 1 argument if wanted, 4th is for only defensive points and ending statements no arguments. If you're against automation then accept my challenge.

Auomation has the capcity to boost economic growth, efficiency and production.These are all very good things.

It also presents a real threat of seriously deflating the overall value of human capital, could lead unchecked power, and widespread inequality.

Ultimately I think there needs to be a balance between knowledge and wisdom as technology progresses.

In the wrong hands a full automated society could be extremely distructive to the quality and propserity of the human race as a whole.

In the right hands it could lead to a society that encourages the enlightenment and the full expression of the human experience.

Somewhat skeptical it wont be used to seize power, profits, and control.
