    Think about that for 5 minutes and see what happens.

    Sooner or later, either human aggression or Mother Nature will see to it that the population is reduced, one way or another.

    We're doing it wrong.

    1.A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    2.A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    3.A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

    Those who fail to read science fiction dystopias are doomed to create them?

    Oh, yes, the three laws of robotics. Isaac Asimov, wasn't it?

    I'm thinking Farhenheit 451 and the interesting little robot described there.

    This is true, but the idea is to avoid all that pain, or as much as we can, through sound management.

    We are not the slightest bit interested in that.
    The American Left never had the right to try to control minds or conversations.... that is abuse....and it has to be over.

    Obviously not. We humans are lousy managers.

    Not being good at the job and not trying to do the job are two very different things.
