I don't know, I'm not making an ethical claim on this. But the businessweek article Ian cites doesn't really counter the points I made. Rather, it just avoids them.

"They remove people from dangerous and boring jobs they shouldn't have been doing in the first place, and put them in higher-skilled, higher-paying positions."
That's a subjective claim. Who says they shouldn't be doing these jobs? If they were dangerous, then yes, it is better that machines do it. But like the example I cited with the self-check outs, or Redbox machines, those jobs may be boring, but they once belonged to people who used the money to feed themselves and their families.

"Robot-building competitions like First Robotics, founded by inventor Dean Kamen, excite today's students who will become tomorrow's engineers and entrepreneurs."
Good for tomorrow's people, but bad for today's. A lot of these people can't afford to go back to school. That isn't a result of poor fiscal responsibility, that's a result of the fact that some people can work three jobs and not make nearly as much money as someone who inherited their money or grew up in a middle-class family where they had so many more opportunities than others. I'm not saying that all rich people are undeserving, but I would like to counter the claim that poor people aren't worthy of our respect and efforts.

Automation could help, if we provided the ability for our citizens to shift job capacities through new training and education. Tomorrow's citizens may be ok, if we can invest properly in our system to make sure that they are talented in math, science, and the areas where future jobs will exist. But as it stands right now, with an unemployment rate that is already so high, a growing population, and cuts to the programs that aim to help people reinvent themselves, along with cuts to education, I don't see the unemployment rate dropping anytime soon.
