John, Daniel, jt512: Loving your family, wanting good for your group, caring about what your culture values... these are all part of being human. It doesn't matter that the specific targets of these feelings are largely an accident of birth: the feelings are real.

Your family, yes.  Your "group" is too ambiguous to comment on.  What I'm arguing about is your country.  Uncountable numbers of people leave their homelands exactly because they oppose the "values" of those countries and favor the values elsewhere.  To believe that you owe an allegiance to a country just because you were born there or a religion just because you were born into it is just indoctrination.  The sooner one realizes this the freer one is.

100% agree with the above.

Well, that's a comment I don't often get!

The problem is that as time goes to infinity..the percent of jobs a computer will be able to do goes to 100.

I don't think that there's much evidence for that.

You can't "readily identify" anyone's gender. You can only make an assumption.

Perhaps we should consider that those who choose to follow her "brand" of advice are merely confirming Darwin's conclusions.

I think your quotes are in the wrong place. It's definitely a brand, but I'd hesitate to call it "advice".
