I think automation and a.i. will make socialism inevitable whether we like it or not. Some major changes are currently happening behind the scenes, every bit as major - if not more so - than the Industrial Revolution. The irony is that capitalism will facilitate socialism, because it will be infinitely more cost effective to use a.i. and automation instead of human beings. This will result in the need for human beings to have a system that provides for them without their labor. In the past, that simply wasn't viable, and was quite unfair. "You pretend to pay us, and we pretend to work". In the very near future, however, there will be enough cheap slave labor done by machines, computers, driverless cars, etc, and people's survival thereafter cannot be tied to their work, or they will perish.
