A zero value man

It is important to define value as a scale that has at one end the term “high value”. if there is a scale for value, then that scale must have a zero. If we allow the fact that there are a select group who can attain high-value status, then we must accept that others are in the low value end. I assert there must even be an absolute zero. There is the possibility of a zero value man. I’ll further assert that they are abundant.

Ghost economy

The current practice of ghost flights by airlines is a great analogy to what needs to happen in the workforce.   To protect the nation from large numbers of hospitalizations and deaths, we could remove the people from their positions when they are over 50 or have one of the identified preexisting conditions.   Eventually (hopefully), the crisis will abate where we can allow these people to return to their original roles. 

Saturation employment follows automation

Dedomenology has a saturation aspect, requiring very long periods of work stretching over many days regardless of the concepts of standard working hours such as a 40 hour workweek.    When something needs to be tackled, it will employ the dedomenologist continuously until there is some level of completion.  There will be an endless stream of assignments that someone will need to dive into the depths of the data ocean and staying there for a long time until the assignment is over. 

Declaration of indifference

The constitution was based on a population that accepted the concepts of individual independence.   The current government is of a population that accepts a concept of granted or not-yet revoked privileges based on merit and trust.    We reconcile the problem by operating a government for show that follows the canon set out by the constitution, and a government for real that operates largely independently of democratic control. 

Employment in age of data

The UBI future may be universal government employment but that government will be a data-driven government that replaces modern bureaucratic governments.   Alternatively, the bureaucracies will be opened up to employ most of the population in the task of managing the data-driven government.   Everyone will have an income because everyone will be employed as data workers in a dedomenocracy.
