The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots.”
Erich Fromm

Where we are happened fast, but where we are going SEEMS TO BE happening faster.

We is incorrect.

The following plural nouns should replace the “we”:

Intelligent machines and robots.

Since Roswell entities (and others) didn't assist humans in their technological acceleration, praise and blame should be heaped upon HOMO SAPIENS.

Perhaps we (we is correct this time) humans have bitten off more than we can possibly chew (forgive an awkward metaphor).

It took 66 years for man to get his wings to fly to the moon after the Wright Brothers got theirs:

On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first powered airplane 20 feet above a wind-swept beach in North Carolina. The flight lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet.

The United States' Apollo 11 was the first manned mission to land on the Moon, on 20 July 1969.

The automobile.
Nuclear energy.
The Computer.
R O B O T S.

But why should I even care?
When robots and extraterrestrials fight it out, I will have passed.
I used passed instead of dead.
But I didn't pass, I failed.
I died.
Or maybe I did pass, since like everyone else who lived, I TOO died.


I may have been kicking a dead horse.

Just as I MIGHT HAVE BEEN DOING concerning robots.

Why worry?

WHEN robots do threaten humans, IT will be great for corporations and the Pentagon who always need the National Security of the United States to be in peril so that they can crank up theIR PERPETUAL WAR AND MONEY MACHINES.
