I don't think unemployment is the problem. Unemployment, to the extent that it's caused by technology rather than dumping our crap jobs on cheap labor forces with no workplace safety laws, is technology living up to the promises we've been making since the industrial revolution of freeing us from drudgery. The problem is what we do with the people we no longer need drudging away, and the fault doesn't lie with the technology.
