I have absolutely no idea what you mean. How is replacing factory workers with assembly lines and machinery more local, than replacing shop clerks with computers? They won't replace every shop assistant everywhere in the whole world right at the same instant. There are some McDonalds that no longer have people taking your order, so it already started and it will go on for decades until the last shop assistant is phased out. If technological advances no longer make it possible for our economic system to function, then it is not the technological advances that need be frowned upon. And the solution is not artificially keeping people in hateful jobs, when the job could be done without human slaves. We're playing an ancient global board game of monopoly. It's the game's rules that need changing when they no longer fit reality, and not the other way around. The game works perfectly if we pre-suppose that in order to meet everyone's needs, everyone needs to work. But that's no longer true. Due to the said industrial revolution and now due to high levels of automation. It is no longer necessary for the entire population to work full time jobs to meet the needs, or even the wants of the population.
