Of course, the flaw in thinking you can create a goon squad to control the masses is that your enforcers may begin to sympathize with those they are employed to suppress.
Considering how the military is moving towards more automated weapons that kill, it is difficult to think these weapons will not eventually find their way into law enforcement. To those in power, the great thing about robots and mechanical autonomous guards is they will carry out their missions as programed. Rest assured when push comes to shove those displaced from the job market and only able to scrape by will find they are only given enough to ensure they remain docile and behave. If and when this becomes an issue conflict and violence will rise.
Before his death, famed physicist Stephen Hawking warned that Earth is headed for a “catastrophic ending” as a result of rising inequality fueled by robots that grow increasingly smarter by the day. Hawking's dire prediction came as robots and artificial intelligence started to take over human jobs. The McKinsey Global Institute predicts some 800 million people around the world will be displaced out of their jobs by 2030 as a result of automation.
Without jobs, we stand the risk
of losing our relevance in society. This creates a scenario of misery
and conflict with many people displaced and those with little to lose
fighting to merely survive. The topic of our future and culture always circles back to and is
directly linked to the issue of jobs vanishing as automation and an army
robots march into our workplace. This can result in a future that takes on a
very grim dystopian appearance. The fear of being
replaced by a robot or seeing your job being
outsourced or eliminated is on the rise.

The ugly truth is that once the genie of disorder gets out of the bottle it is difficult to get him back in.
|Those In Power May Secretly Develop New Weapons|
With around seven and a half billion people living on Planet Earth today and 10 billion predicted by 2050 even feeding our population may not be easy, especially if climate change adds to our problems. This brings us back to the prediction of famed physicist Stephen Hawking, that Earth is headed for a “catastrophic ending” in the near future.
Throughout history, we have seen new weapons are often only revealed when those in power wish to make a statement. It is reasonable that in a scenario where it rapidly becomes clear the plant has too many people vying for dwindling resources that the huddled masses will be considered "the odd man out" and it is time to cull the herd to reduce the world's population for "the greater good!"
