In this video, Vin Armani talks about the approaching agenda of taxing robots as if they’re the same as labor because they replace jobs. How many jobs did Quickbooks kill?

  1. Before we start asking for more taxes, we need to sweep this criminal political machine out of power and implement a real Constitutional Republic.

  2. Since robots can replace in fact quite precisely a pair of human hands doing repeatable motions, why not to tax that and give the money for a generation of new jobs or better qualifications? How many jobs were already taken by the machines and never replaced by a human who needs to survive? And yes, the taxes from this would need to be monitored so that they do not end up in supporting lethal military/industrial complex..

  3. Computers will work efficiently for 24 hours each day,and only stop for planned maintenance where a replacement will be on hand to continue production. Tax does not work when Governments give out Loopholes to Local Benefactors re: – British Politicunt Parties.


  4. Right on. It’s to destroy the small business and individual entrepreneur. The big Corporations, the Corportocracy, will get subsidies, i.e. tax breaks for the tax.

  5. Now it makes since why the tech industry calls algorithyms and programs ‘bots’. Tax all small industries and individuals out of existence and centralize those such businesses and industries into the hands of a few. Like the corportocracy has always done.
