Smith says that workers shouldn’t fear job loss from automation. Because a lot of the problem is an exaggerated narrative. 

“We’ve been deploying automation technology for centuries, and as of 2023, pretty much every human who wants a job has a job,” Smith wrote, “but there’s basically no way to get people to believe that this next wave of automation will be the one that finally sends humans into obsolescence.”
