His new social contract can be summarized thusly:  Bend over.

A “cushion to try new ideas”?  Really?  You mean when you get fired off off a good paying middle class job because you trained a robot to do your job, a robot owned by say royalty deadbeat Zuckerberg, that you feel great about it because you’ve got a “cushion to try new ideas” like not losing your house.
