Warren Ellis’ Three Laws of Robotics

www.warrenellis.com: Three Laws of Robotics

#2:

“Robots couldn’t really give a fuck if you live or die. Seriously. I mean, what are you thinking? “Ooh, I must protect the bag of meat at all costs because I couldn’t possibly plug in the charger all on my own.” Shut the fuck up.”

If those new robots that can learn emotion and attitude hang out with Warren too long, we may be in a teeny bit of trouble. I’m not too worried, though. The crocodile people are more likely to stay with the ‘program’. And hell, they are CROCODILE PEOPLE.

    Yes, but Crocodile People should still be regarded as being somewhat ‘problematic’ in terms of their presumed support of the human species given that they function primarily at a reptilian level of brain function: fuck it or kill it.

    I know I don’t want to be fucked by a crocodile person, and the alternative isn’t much better.

    In all liklihood you’d need to work toward crocodile people cyborgs, chip their brains or something.

    Yes, all in all, cyborgs are a better option than either genetic mutants or emotionless killer robots.
