Automation has the potential for radically improving the quality of
life, as can be demonstrated from both an historical perspective and
numerous present-day examples. The progressive elimination of many of
the boring, repetitive, unsafe and demeaning work practices on the
farm and in the factory fall into the first category; modern
developments in surgery, road building, health care and
fruit-harvesting in the second.

automation for chocoholics
