The main thing I try to get people to understand (when labor is the topic) is that today almost all of the tangible benefits we have over our ancestors are due directly to automation. Machines are the future, teach them well and let them lead the way. To take the example further, consider showing them all the beauty they posses inside. Give them a simulated sense of pride.

Not until a robot knows how to touch me in the special spot will I trust them.
