Chocolate – Our exploitation of workers
As we eat perhaps even more chocolate than usual on a day for the Christians among us, the masses go round stuffing their faces unaware or uncaring at the level of our corporate exploitation of black workers.

The Rise of the Machines – Henn-na Hotel Nagasaki
I read today an article about a new hotel in Japan that is due to open this year. At first I thought that it was an April Fool’s joke but having carried out a search on the web it appears to be true. So whether I’m a Luddite or not depends on your point of view. I’m all for technology making our working conditions easier and for making the current working week shorter but replacing human labour completely for me is a moral outrage and if that is the case then yes let’s smash the machines. We have a surplus of labour that will only grow as the human population heads up from its 7.n billion people through 8 billion and beyond. Replacing human labour completely just enriches wealthy corporations, widens the gap between the majority of the world’s human population and the rich elite and creates a society that has even more exclusion something that can only lead to less social cohesion and more crime. The hotel will be part of a theme park and they are expecting them to be able to carry out 90% of the hotel’s functions.
