Can parliaments and political parties overcome these challenges and forestall the darker scenarios? At the current moment this does not seem likely. Technological disruption is not even a leading item on the political agenda. During the 2016 U.S. presidential race, the main reference to disruptive technology concerned Hillary Clinton’s email debacle, and despite all the talk about job loss, neither candidate directly addressed the potential impact of automation. Donald Trump warned voters that Mexicans would take their jobs, and that the U.S. should therefore build a wall on its southern border. He never warned voters that algorithms would take their jobs, nor did he suggest building a firewall around California.

CHOMSKY: I voted more against [George] #Bush than for anybody.

QUESTION: Does “anybody” mean the other mainstream candidate, Bill Clinton? CHOMSKY: I voted for #Clinton, not necessarily because I approve of his position, but because I think Bush would be worse. #elections #ընտրություններ
