They said it would never happen despite evidence to the contrary. Throughout history, major inventions and innovations resulted in people losing their jobs and the development and creation of new industries and job opportunities. People learned new skills and evolved. But technology truncated that growth.

First came the robots eliminating wages, health care, retirement, and workers compensation. Then robots repaired robots. Computer systems diagnosed themselves and each other. Programmers were needed. Then came artificial intelligence, and systems programmed themselves. But the final blow came when the last vestiges of the human workforce were finally replaced. CEOs were no longer needed.

    Nobody liked CEOs anyway, so maybe good riddance...

    I like the idea of eliminating CEO's, but with what I see going on around the globe with robotics, I'm afraid the rest of this drabble is also on the way to becoming reality.

    Christopher, this drabble is exactly where I see things going.
