        OP didn't say anything about utopia, he just acted as if there isn't significant amount of automation for menial labor and the factory owner isn't the only one to benefit also all the people that get to buy his products much cheaper than they would have been without the automation, so they don't have to work as hard for what they want either.

          Wouldn't that be nice? Yet somehow people still have to work three minimum-wage jobs to get by after having been made redundant by machines. Factory owners will only lower prices to drive the competition into the ground, once there's no competition, or they're price fixing together, they have no reason to eat into their own profits like that. Especially when it comes to necessities that people will have to buy anyway. Just think of ridiculously inflated medicine prices.

            They don't have to they do that because they want a much higher standard of living and choose to live in highly competitive largely populated areas where goods are more expensive thanks to the laws of supply and demand.

            >they have no reason to eat into their own profits like that.
            Economy of scale, they aren't eating into their own profits, they are reaching a larger customer base by having better prices.

            >Just think of ridiculously inflated medicine prices.
            That is because of regulations and laws that make it harder to produce medicine with more incentive to post fake inflated prices that aren't even actually paid by the insurance companies and government insurance providers at the end of the day and also lets the companies have too much control over their competition.

            Great to know that entirely removing yourself from society and going to live off the grid as a subsistence farmer is a serious alternative here. Capitalism offers nothing but choices!
            >It doesn't because of economy of scale.
            Yes, some diabetics will just choose to die instead. Freedom!

            Anyway, that is all beside the point, which is that, under capitalism, automation does not lead to the liberation of the working class, but only greater enslavement. Fewer jobs means more desperate people means lower wages, so any gains from automation are more than compensated by a corresponding decrease in real wages. And with the ultimate commodification of art by entirely divesting it of human creative expression, workers are turned into nothing more than just another machine among the others.

        Yeah because automation kills jobs. You're just figuring this out now? All the people who used to hand-assemble stuff in a factory had to go out and find other jobs, because otherwise they'd be unemployed. Automation creates new jobs, but they're typically white-collar/high-faculty "figure out how to make this machine do X" whereas the jobs that get outmoded are typically blue-collar/low-faculty.

        But really, people have it quite delayed.
        The original Luddites were more than two hundred years ago. The early 20th century mechanized all predictable tasks. Industrial robots were new in the 70s. Now the goal is to make humanoid robots and AI.

            >has already largely been automated
            yeah, why tho? why has it been automated? to cut on the times. else we'd still be hunter gatherers. why stop at automating murdering our food and not automate everything up to serving it? and maybe cook once in a while for the whole experience.

            Industrialization/Commercialization

            >to cut on the times
            In part, but primarily the purpose is to make agriculture a more profitable industry.

            >why stop at automating murdering our food
            We didn't, the packaging and shipping is also largely automated.

            >automate everything up to serving it?
            You would simply have to get an air fryer to automate the cooking and invest in a series of conveyor belts to get it from the fridge to the air fryer to the table, but most people don't want a kitchen and dining room filled with conveyor belts and the aesthetics outweigh their laziness.

            >murdering
            you can't murder an animal, murder specifically refers to the killing of a human. you're so ignorant and low iq that you can't even speak your native tongue correctly

            Drawing lines has also been mostly automated, when they do it on highways, they literally just drive down the road and let the vehicle do it for them.

    >we've automated the creation of art and literature
    no, we haven't
    the crap that shitty code turns out is not art or literature, it's crap

      It was resolved here

      On the other hand, literature (definition 1d) may be and is automated.
      https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/literature

      and here

      I accept your argument and stand corrected. Art (definition 6) may be and is automated.

      that AI is able to emit definitions 1d of literature and 6 of art, as enumerated by Merriam-Webster.

      Sports would be the most likely, the vast majority is so formulaic that AI shoulddo it woth no problem.

        Replacing the news written by people with news created by politically correct software that is censored to globohomosexual standards is something straight out of dystopian sci-fi. Thats probably where they got the idea for it.

    George Orwell never said that.
    O'Brian (an evil fictional character in Orwell's 1984) said that.
    This is literally the same as putting George Lucas's face next to swastikas with a Palpatine quote "Yes, let the hate flow through you!"
