The Choice Between Ideology & Technology is the Choice Between Insane & Sane Future for Dems

Nancy Pelosi and Ocasio Cortez had met to end the Democratic Civil War this should be seen far more in favor of Alexandra Kasich Cortes and the influence that she has on the Democrat Party then the position and the influence and power of the House Speaker but this had come as a necessity and was forced on the leadership of the Democratic Party considering how according to their own pool Alexandra Kasich Cortes is defining Democrats in swing states poll shows congresswoman attacked by Trump with weak favorability ratings this is not a good look for the Democrat Party as hold according to this pool Acacio Cortes was recognized by 74% of voters in the pool 22% had a favorable view a representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota another member of the squad was recognized by 53% of the voters nine nine percent not a typo had a favorable view socialism was viewed favorably by 80 percent of the voters and unfavorably by 69 percent capitalism was 56 percent favorable 32 percent unfavorable socialism is toxic to these voters said the top Democrat it is exactly on the basis of these kind of findings that the conclusion can be drawn that dislike for Ilhan Omar and AOC could tip the house to Republicans in 2020 and itself these kind of findings should be seen as an ongoing and evolving collapse of the center left of the Democrat Party that is really the most resonating part of this party with Democratic voters and Democratic base all across this country United States now this conflict between the corporate faction and the so called ideological progressive faction of the Democrat Party is not all bad news for the rest of Democrats from my perspective we are living in the world where the most valuable resource is no longer oil but it is data and I see this as an opportunity for Democrats to make the choice between ideology and technology I the choice between insane and the same direction for the future of this party Democrats are already not stranger with the challenges of modern technology and socio-political dynamic of the United States for example representative Tulsi Gabbard who is also a presidential candidate Democrat has recently sued Google for 50 million dollars making the claim that Google had made the conscious decision to pull out her advertisement and jeopardizing her right to free speech and free expression but they're also those Democrats who've been more closely and directly involved with technology one of those people is Representative John Delaney who's a founder of the AI caucus and the co-chair of that caucus and he's also running for the president in 2020 and he is a person who has said we should not put up a candidate who embraces socialism but perhaps the most well known Democrat who's running on the platform of Technology is Andrew yang who's 2020 campaign message is that the robots are coming and all of his policies not all but majority of his policies are determined and defined on the basis of that understanding and react has stated that the u.s. government is 24 years behind on tech and he has also said that big tech companies would be well served if broken up now I don't necessarily agree with all of the policies that are being proposed by Henry yang including Medicare for all but there are policies that are very refreshing to have within the conversation and the debate in this socio-political dynamic and structure of the United States that are being proposed by Henry and including regulation of AI and other emerging technologies now whether or not any of these policies we work we have no idea because we haven't had a national and a public conversation and debate about these policies but the fact that any of these policies tech driven policies and tech focused policies are being proposed by any of the 2020 presidential candidates it's very refreshing and totally welcomed by me and I hope that more people start realizing the bigger issues that we have to discuss rather than trying to double down on the ideology but as I said this conflict between the corporate faction and the ideological faction of the Democrat Party is an opportunity for people who are considering techno technological hurdles and obstacles and challenges ahead as a big-picture important issues that deserve public and national conversation and debate about it now perhaps the most well known policy that's been proposed by Andrew yang is what he calls freedom dividend which is a universal basic income $1,000 a month to every US citizen whether or not you be AI universal basic income is going to work again we haven't had a national and public debate and conversation about it a lot of people would agree with it and a lot of people disagree with it it is important to realize that the idea of universal basic income was not invented by today's big government left it has intrigued thinkers from John Stuart Mill to Milton Friedman and I've already talked about this how there are different version of universal basic income that is being proposed from the far left to left to Center to right to far right and libertarians for example Bill Gates has made the argument that the robot that takes your job should pay taxes so perhaps that can be seen as a source of funding for any kind of a universal basic income program I have made the argument that any kind of universal basic income can be funded by tech companies on the basis of users data contribution and then users get paid directly by the tech company on the basis of data contribution you wouldn't need any kind of a middleman including government or any other institution or a department it will be a direct and a decentralized mean of funding and distributing this universal basic income payments it should also be understood that and Ryann's proposals aren't as popular in Silicon Valley as you might think navall ravichandran m Pillai said that you vi+ direct democracy will crash the economy pretty hard and need robot created abundance first-years also said that ubi will be a disaster people will vote themselves everything entrepreneurs entrepreneurs will flee skilled immigration stops unskilled skyrockets now like anything else there are positives and negatives about any of these proposed ideas but we haven't had the national and public conversation and debate about them so my argument is that as a result of this vacuum of power that was created because of this conflict between the ideological faction on the corporate faction of the Democrat Party some sane Democrats now have the opportunity to bring up some of these issues and policies that are directly related to technology and are consequential to the kind of technological evolution that we have to deal with whether or not we want to deal with it as a society as nations and in a completely inevitable fashion in the coming years in coming decades it is exactly because of the reliance of technology that big texts are surpassing governments for example a report came out that Facebook knows more about you than the CIA it's gotten to the point where the tech giant's know more about you than the government does take it from yael Eisenstaedt who served as a CIA officer a diplomat in East Africa an advisor to Vice President Biden before joining Facebook in 2018 to tackle its election meddling problem I get to make this joke not everyone does having been in both places but Facebook knows you better than the CIA ever will she says the Facebook knows more about you than you know about yourself that is the power of technology and that is the power of data and that is really the unknown part of all of this that we have no idea all the possibilities that will be presented to people who are focused and rely on the power of technology rather than power of governance so even though there is now an ongoing antitrust reviews of big tech companies by the government the big reality and the big picture is that governments themselves could very well become irrelevant as a result of technological revolution and this fourth Industrial Revolution so it's incredibly important that we have politicians and policy makers who acknowledge the opportunities at the same time risks that are provided and presented to us as society as a result of technological evolution and the fourth Industrial Revolution that we are already living in it and what is coming and what is going to happen to society as the result of this evolution industrial route the fourth Industrial Revolution is going to be inevitable so we better address it rather than just completely reject it and say that we don't want to deal with it whatsoever on the basis of partisan politics
