Re: Pitchforks And Torches Will No Longer Be Able To Stop The 1%

New digital pitchforks and torches will be ineffective at stopping the 1% because the elite will have the financial wherewithal to defend themselves from attacks.

Re: Pitchforks And Torches Will No Longer Be Able To Stop The 1%

Do not blame the robots or technology for economic inequality. It is people who are to blame and their surrogate corporations who carry out their will to wantonly create ever increasing inequality without retribution.
