The Jobs That Will Be Lost Are Not What You Think

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.



Friend — 
Thank you for your support!  It means a ton to us.  I hope to see as many of you as possible on the Humanity First Tour.  It kicks off this weekend—check out the event calendar here.
The first stop is this Sunday in New Hampshire, where I’ll be doing a town hall with Lawrence Lessig.  He ran for President as a Democrat in 2016, focusing on campaign finance and electoral reforms because he believes they are necessary to fix the biggest threats to our democracy.  I must say that he makes persuasive points on these issues, and I agree with him on a lot of the solutions.  When I’m elected, I’ll bring public financing to elections through Democracy Dollars and electoral reform through Ranked Choice Voting.  If you can be in Concord this weekend, please do come.
Every day, more people are waking up to the need to fundamentally shift the way we shape our economy.  I am passionate about our need to evolve because I am convinced that we are automating away the most common jobs in our country, and we must adapt.  My book on automation and the future, The War on Normal People, came out in paperback earlier this week.  I have appended an entire chapter of the book below.  It will give you a sense of what I see coming.  If you don’t have a copy yet, now is a great time to pick one up—with your help, it can make the bestseller lists.
