In the past few years, technology has been a major source of controversy in several first-world societies. The majority of objection to technological advancement comes from those who worry about the potential damage that our ever-advancing technology could cause in our economy and our inter-personal relationships. Others, such as members of FALC (Fully Automated Luxury Communism) argue that technological advancement is not something to be afraid of, it should be embraced. Members of FALC believe that technology is our future, and that we should encourage the widespread use of technology in work environments, even if that means technology almost entirely replacing humans. While I recognize the validity of FALC’s arguments, their idea of “luxury communism” lacks credibility. A society completely run by technology is very new concept, and is not supported by the proper research and social experiments that would reveal all of it’s shortcomings. Logistically speaking, if FALC were to implement they’re ideas, which would require establishing an entirely new economy, they would need to provide an answer to countless questions and problems that realistically would take years to answer and stir endless controversy. I believe the most pressing and provocative question that would need to be answered is, who would be in charge of all of these robots- our government or private enterprises? The answer would potentially determine the role that technology would play in our every day life. Not only do I think that establishing an entirely new economy is unpractical, I believe it is theoretically wrong. Technology has already taken over our everyday lives in terms of communication, however the idea that we could potentially rely on technology for almost everything that is needed to sustain life and our overall well-being is frightening. Not only is technology constantly malfunctioning and completely unreliable, it is untrustworthy… A certain degree of human involvement in the work place and in society is necessary to maintain quality control and accessibility. Another concern that I have about a “fully automated luxury” society stems from the overwhelming and inevitable job loss that would occur. If jobs are being taken over by technology, people may have no way to make money, which makes attaining any form of “luxury” impossible. Although the idea of technology doing all of human’s dirty work is appealing, establishing luxury communism will never be practical, and would never be able to support a functioning economy.
