Cuba has the highest Human Development Index in the Carribean (with the exception of a few tiny tourist islands, which can't be meaningfully compared to a real country, like comparing Iceland to the US) and one of the highest in Latin America. These are facts. It is not a failed state/regime by any measure. Failed regime=/= does things you don't like. Do you consider China a failed state as well?
People who try to shoehorn their Obama-hatred into every discussion are hilarious. I bet it would blow your mind to know that Nixon "shook hands" (because that means you endorse everything a leader has done, dontchaknow) with Mao. Also, Cuba is anything but a "failed regime." They've outlasted 10 presidents and recently eliminated child malnutrition.
"So umm Sark, then what are those replaced by the machines going to do once the machines are doing their jobs?"
New jobs? Technology always makes some jobs obsolete. Being a luddite is not a solution.
"So it's better for people to be unemployed than work low paying jobs?"
Did I say that? No. If more and more work can be don't by machines, than there's less work that humans have to do. Which is a good thing. The problem is that the wealth from those automated processes are accruing to a tiny subset of the population instead of to society at large.
"No. I never thought I was underpaid working as a researcher."
Than you can volunteer to work for less if you don't think you're worth more. People who have families to support don't have that luxury.
