What if

I look at the future and worry as shops shut down because of the internet as people lose jobs because of advancing technology as companies struggle with the future loss of income as countries struggle with lost tax where will it end will Governments that don't have money stop paying benefits will people without jobs fight to survive Will the rich, use the weapons of the future on gangs that steal to survive will a world that's staving become a battleground of people Companies that think only of themselves keep replacing people with technology yet with every person that loses a job that's one less taxpayer to support the country That's one less consumer that can afford products that's one more mouth dependant on your handout Granted with advancing technology you are creating more jobs but what of the people that can't learn what of the child, that's disabled what of the adult that's intellectually challenged born to this planet we all have a right to life our world needs a plan for all people we need Governments, that are not, just for the rich that are not, just for the poor that think of solutions for everyone Governments that can think above the chaos to make plans and solutions for everyone they say Governments can't run companies yet perhaps we should try and try again working people pay tax working people, keep your country healthy working people have the money to buy your companies products
