Of the genius Ashley Montague (Princeton, Yale prof) the NYTimes wrote in
the1950's - 'If the world does not embrace his [ideas] we will not make it.'
"Our problem is not the absence of Love.
Our problem is the presence of Tribal Love."
NPR this morning had an hour long segment on robotics - that this is
the age of their proliferation. It was excruciating to listen to. Oh yes,
at a younger age for me I'd have been enamored.
Why now sickened, horrified?! OMG. #2. Although Military was never
mentioned, Military OF COURSE will be the initial, primary, dominant use.
BUT, #1 - THE ROBOTS ARE OF, BY AND FOR THE RICH!!! DUH!!! US!!!!!!!!!!
"Start, you conspiratorial moron! Don't you know that they will do things
like help MD's SAVE CHILDRENS LIVES!?!???!?!?"
THIS IS WHERE I GET REALLY, REALLY, REALLY SICK TO MY STOMACH. THIS IS WHERE I
REALIZE THAT "NUCLEAR FAMILY," "MY" FAMILY, "MY" TOWN, "MY" SCHOOL,
"MY" COMPANY, "MY" COUNTRY, "MY" CHURCH... ARE OUR DEATH.
1. HOW MANY OF THE 4 BILLION FOLKS EXISTING ON $4 PER DAY WILL THESE
2. HOW MANY OF THEIR CHILDREN WILL THEY SAVE? HOW MANY OF THE 28 MILLION
CHILDREN THAT DIE EVERY YEAR WILL THEY HELP?
3. HOW MANY WOULD WE LIFT FROM POVERTY, SAVE, IF THE BILLIONS BEING
SPENT ON ROBOTICS, IF THE 10,000'S OF THE WORLD'S BEST MINDS WERE
NOT DISTRACTED BY ROBOTS FOR THE RICH, BUT ELIMINATING POVERTY?????
All given license by "MY" family, "MY" group.... IF IT WERE OUR FAMILY,
INCLUDING THE 4B IN POVERTY, WE COULDN'T DO THIS!!!!!!!! OF COURSE
WE'D DEVOTE OURSELVES TO THE POOREST OF OUR FAMILY, THE
AND AS LONG AS "NUCLEAR FAMILY" EXISTS, WE NEVER WILL. AND WE WILL
THINK THAT WE DO GOOD, "GOD'S WILL" IN THIS. I DID.
