      Привет группа Kurzgesagt я ьы хотел что бы вы сделали видео о том что будет с людьми если за них всю работу будут делать роботы . То есть представьте себе что люди не работают за них всю абсолютно всю работу выполняют роботы . Чем будет занематься человечество когда у него будет уйма времени ? Спасибо за ранее . Я не русскоязычный. Так что прошу прощения за орфографические и граматические ошибки если они присутствуют .

                          It would be great if we could do great things with no other motivation to help each other. However, corporations are bound by law to maximize shareholder profits, and thus CANNOT GIVE AWAY FREE MEDICINE without getting something in return (ie. expedited approval from the FDA of their new arthritis or cancer drug).
