THE AUTOMATIC GOVERNMENT

... What about work? Not to worry. During that time the Government and the private companies will be on automatic. Aircraft can fly on auto-pilot safely. We are on the ground. We will not crash.
... It shows that we really don't need a Government. It will just coast along even if no one is steering it. That is how good we have become at governing.
