There is coming a future soon where artificial intelligence data systems and humanoid androids will render both skilled and unskilled labor obsolete. Yet those who own and control the means of production will still need a market to sell to. This market won’t exist if 90% plus of the population is unnecessary to said production of goods and services. This will require some form of global welfare state to provide universal basic income. That means the Earth will be enslaved by those who own and control the means of production or by the artificial intelligences themselves. It will destroy the free market capitalist system far more surely than any misguided socialist philosophy ever could. So yes, Congress had better be informed, or we risk losing our freedom and very humanity.
