How odd that his relished life goal was to cast people out of work.
An extremely fine goal actually, the source of all economic and social advance.
Anybody, everybody, who automates a routine task, whether it be weeding turnips, catching mice or etching circuit boards is deliberately casting people out of work. And it is that exact casting out of work which allows civilisation to advance: no longer do we have to spend scarce resources of labour on what is now automated, that labour can now be deployed to do something else.
Anything else, meaning that we now have both the now automated production and the new. Even if that now automated production is the circuit boards and the new is simply a freshly changed nappy.
Society is now richer by one smiling baby.
Casting people out of work is a fine and noble goal.
