This is of course not a complete list of the fallicies, but it's a good quick glance. Of note is the question of where will we find the hundreds of thousands of skilled workers to make this happen? The obvious answer is that we won't. The goal is to train "under served communities", for free of course. But in part 1 we learned that we only have 12 years before the end of the world.

“I would rather be governed by the first two thousand people in the Boston telephone directory than by the two thousand people on the faculty of Harvard University."
- William Buckley on “Meet the Press", 17 October 1965.



I would say choosing anyone from Massachusetts to govern our country is a mistake... but those from academia fail when it comes to understanding how to help the economic engine of America work to make our country strong, and not throttle it with a losing agenda.

Well then, I predict church membership will rise at an ever increasing rate over the next 12 years.

It's as if she is trying to sell creating a utopian society where people do not work, but instead receive money from the government in order to enjoy life. "We should be excited about automation, because what it could potentially mean is more time educating ourselves, more time creating art, more time investing in and investigating the sciences, more time focused on invention, more time going to space, more time enjoying the world that we live in,” she said, according to The Verge. “Because not all creativity needs to be bonded by wage.”

"Capitalism is an ideology of capital — the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit,” Ocasio-Cortez said. "And that comes at any cost to people and to the environment, she said, according to Bloomberg News, “so to me capitalism is irredeemable."

“We should be working the least amount we’ve ever worked, if we were actually paid based on how much wealth we were producing,” she said. “But we’re not. We’re paid on how little we’re desperate enough to accept. And then the rest is skimmed off and given to a billionaire.”

I recall how we were told with automation and smart computers we would perhaps not work a 40 hour work week because these technological advancements would increase worker productivity so a 40 hours week was not needed.

Instead I am lucky to do in 60 hours all that is required of me. And because everyone has me at their effen fingertips through their phone email/text, I cannot even sleep through the night without some jack wagon emailing me of their immediate need because they happen to be up at 2:00 AM.

I think the more automation the more is required of us.

So... AOC grow up a little. Live in the real world...

I hope her 15 minutes of fames crashes and burns soon.
