As time goes on there will be less and less need for human labor. What is the solution to the inevitable jobs crisis?

Japanese firm to open world’s first robot-run farm

A Japanese company is to open the world’s first “robot farm”, as agriculture joins other sectors of the economy in attempting to fill labour shortages created by the country’s rapidly ageing population.

Going to need a small army of repair techs...

Do you think the need for people that repair the robots will make up for the overall job loss? Do you think the robots will eventually become intelligent enough to repair each other too? Given enough technology what can a human do that a robot couldn't do just as well or better?

Farming is already mechanized and is using few humans upon them...

Automation is never bad in the long run.

The solution is obvious, war with the robots. Walk softly but carry a big sledge hammer.

The solution should be a basic income that we use to pay for the basics like food, housing, schooling, etc.

I think this is a great idea because I simply don't believe work or die should be the way things are.
