    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    "This was going to happen at any level of minimum wage" does not in any way imply "let's not ever do anything." You made that up. You got busted, and you're trying to cover it with this false air of superiority.

    This is a fun game. Let's make up more things about each other.
    Letting them live or die based upon their own labors, or lack thereof, is not murder. It's Natural selection. If there are jobs available but they don't want to educate themselves or otherwise earn those jobs, then yeah, let natural selection take place.

    Maybe what all these entitled socialist minded lazy idiots really need is a good old fashioned extinction event.

    As if they will not improve as the technology evolves. It's not like the technology will remain static and the robots will remain at a low quality level in their labors, they are not progressives or other socialist.

    Robots are conservative and as such they will become 1%ers who will demand that everybody else support themselves and do their own work.

    Should robots ever replace low wage workers, a lot of conservatives would fall into the lazy idiot category and become extinct as well. Natural selection doesn't have political boundaries.
