    How many critically acclaimed records has it come out with? Listen, any computer can put a few numbers together and create something. That's not in question. What is in question is whether it will replace a human. Creation doesn't mean it's going to be embraced by a general public and to this day, they haven't been embraced anymore than the invention of animatronic dogs have replaced real dogs in any sense of the word. So yes, a computer can put a few notes out and make it sound like something. It's not going to put emotions behind it and then be able to explain the meaning of that creation any time soon.

    Yup.

    My son is a commercial music major, and he uses software that allows him to compose the melody line and the harmony part is automatically created based upon the melody line. The thing about western music is that it's mathematical in nature, which allows for the ability for software to project what the next note should be based upon standard western music theory.

    Right now, the higher income earners in the music field are into EDM (electronic dance music) where it is all computer generated. It still takes someone with skills, but one person can now do in minutes what used to take hours.

    Then why are you a libertarian? It's the libertarian mindset that's most likely to keep us from advancing the economic changes that we will need in the future.

    I expect that their lives will be much more fulfilling. We just need to work out the economic details first, the libertarian ideal would doom our kids in the future, the solution doesn't have to be communist or socialist, but it will involve significant government regulation of the workplace.

    You would think so, but if we don't solve the distribution of income issues that are approaching us, there will not be enough customers with money to support many strippers or hookers.

    so what we'll need is either a massive welfare state or government provided employment, or a government mandate to employ. if trends continue like they are government is the only solution.
