As robots gradually become the only workers..we all need to think about what's next for the whole society. Of course if there are no jobs ..then there is no income tax..so tax needs to come only from enterprise profits.

A minimum "wage" could be distributed to each and every citizen in the form of rationing of goods and services (delivered mainly by robots). A "civic contribution" could augment the basic "wage" to top it up..and people would have a lot more freetime..to be selfish with or perhaps to develop a new enterprise..

Yep, you skipped past my comment and the article link that it was referring to (both of those are directly above the T-Shirt which has some other "weapons of math instruction" printed on it)

If you read from left to right, and top to bottom you should get the hilarity of this story quite quickly..unless you are Tony Abbott of course !
