Robots will take our jobs

The Economist mag is a big fan of automating jobs, and reports:
Fears about the impact of technology on jobs have resurfaced periodically ever since. The latest bout of anxiety concerns the arrival of artificial intelligence (AI). Once again, however, technology is creating demand for work. ...

These numbers are likely to rise. One reason is increasing demand for “content moderation”. A new law in Germany will require social media to remove any content that is illegal in the country, such as Holocaust denial, within 24 hours or face hefty fines. Facebook has announced that it will increase the number of its moderators globally, from 4,500 to 7,500.
Wow, this is what we are going to be doing when the robots take our jobs? We will work to deny free speech, so that the authorities can perpetuate Jewish myths?

The Jewish Holocaust is not a myth, but this law protects various myths.

The Laws against Holocaust denial are not limited to denying historical facts:
In Germany, Volksverhetzung ("incitement of the people")[31][32] is a concept in German criminal law that bans incitement to hatred against segments of the population. It often applies to (though not limited to) trials relating to Holocaust denial in Germany. In addition, Strafgesetzbuch § 86a outlaws various symbols of "unconstitutional organisations", such as the Swastika and the SS runes.
I think that most of the prosecutions are to ppl who accept the basic facts of the Jewish Holocaust, but who have denied some story in a way that offends Jews.

This censorship will not work, of course. Ppl eventually figure out that authorities are most eager to censor truths, not falsehoods.

Robots and AI will take our jobs. A couple of centuries ago, most workers were farm workers. Farm automation killed those jobs, and ppl became factory workers. After more automation, they became office workers. What is next? We will not have an economy of workers doing Jewish censorship.

I encourage you to find on the internet or via torrent the documentary series One Third Of The Holocaust, Buchenwald, and Nazi Shrunken Heads.

There are other documentaries I am sure you are resourceful enough to find. Also, there is a rich literature in Holocaust Revisionism which is provides more than enough criticism to provide at minimum reasonable doubt and more likely realization that a lie has been turned into history. The Holocaust is a myth. The ill treatment of Jews is not.

I get frustrated when I am not able to access both sides of an issue. I am not able to evaluate what is fact, and what is myth.
