Automation is scary. I thought it was only going to take low end jobs but that is not the case. Robot lawyer is much better because it can remember case law instantly. Also robot pharmacist already outperforms human pharmacist. Those are just two high paying well educated careers out of many that will be replaced that's scary. I don't like the car driving for me at all. I like driving it's fun.
Robots aren't very good at lying so they will probably suck as defense lawyers. They would probably do a good job as public prosecutors though.
As for me I can't wait for self driving cars. I don't have a license and I don't intend to ever have one. So I'm eagerly awaiting the first cars without steering controls.
If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
