This is the question.
I don’t know if this only a problem for the third and developing world or is it a problem for the majority of us, well maybe excepting celebrities and the Kardashians( did I spell that correctly)?
Many firms around the globe are working on maintaining the bottom line above the ceiling, through all available means and this in a way has led to great innovations; creating machines that do the work of hundreds fast and efficiently. This helps match up the required productivity but on the downside, hundreds get
fired laid off. If anyone has watched K-19, The widow maker, I would readily agree with them, it would have been 100x better to have a machine work in the reactor chamber once it was breached. I would say the same about those cleaning Fukushima? Chernobyl and other nuclear sites. I am not sure the same is true for replacing 100s of tea pickers with one machine. What becomes of their families and all those who depend on them?
Is this an ethical and moral question of our age or is this the musings of a naive third world mind?
