No body knows what will happen in the future  Yuval Harari

describes in his books and in podcasts.   [See “21 Lessons for
the 21st Century”].  The twin revolutions of information 
technological disruptions and biotechnology could restructure 
more than economies and societies, but also our own bodies
and thinking.
.
He finds jobs in the future will be robust if they retain a menial
and creative element.  Yet, so much of professions can be data 
managed, searched and automated.  
.

.
Technological disruption_engineers are taking over.  
Ethicists and  philosophers are being lost, but incredibly missed

can be unintended consequences and bad actors are even more likely.
.

and defend and uphold a legal system that protects people.
There is human suffering and we must know it happens.
