We're entering a different era, where virtually all jobs can be replaced, there just aren't enough avenues for the masses to migrate to some kind of work short of some kin of make-work. At least, not without some major cultural changes, I can't see anything people can do that robots won't soon have the capability to do.

It makes a huge amount of sense for businesses to replace humans with robots, how could it not? Far less costly, far more productive, don't get sick, don't make mistakes, at least nothing like the rate humans do.

One thing to think about is that it might not be the workers that get replaced so much as the businesses. If most folk have their own machines to make most of what they want, many businesses will have no customers.
