Most people are not necessary

The work you do is probably more easily automated than you think it is.
Automated Insights, a company that provides language generation software to The Associated Press and other organizations, announced Wednesday the news cooperative will use the software to produce thousands of stories about collegiate sports.

The Associated Press will begin publishing automatically generated sports stories this spring, beginning with Division I baseball, according to a press release.
We could see these developments as an opportunity to de-couple the right to a decent living from the obligation to perform labor, however pointless.   Or we could continue to compete with one another in a stupid race to see who "deserves" more.  Which way do you think we'll take that?
