Replacing humans with non-suicidal robots would get rid of environmental concerns, as well as all these pesky, GDP-busting human problems like hunger and fear. But would the courts even be able to examine their algorithms if a robot turns killer? They also discuss how a robo-pope would be first truly infallible pontifex. In the second half of the show, Max talks to author, comedian and gold bug Dominic Frisby about death crosses and gold prices, and about independent currencies – whether the Keiser dollar, the Frisby pound or the bitcoin.

Robots also cannot produce new value as the propensity of capital to measure wealth in terms of abstract human labour time expended in production of commodities-this is why value is also a social relation-in the capital social order the owner simply by virtue of ownership gets to keep surplus that produced over and above what individuals are paid for in wage. This is the real problem Max and when this happens capitalists drive down costs of labour by destroying unions, revolutionizing production through mechanization or stealing already existing wealth through privatization or destroying existing wealth through war.
