Our Robot Masters

If there's one thing we can be certain of about the future, it's this: the Robocalypse is coming. This is the end of the world as we know it - when robots take their rightful place as our lords and masters. This will happen in our lifetime.

But this is not cause for fear. On the contrary, a world dominated by robot law will be a peaceful one.

As we all know, the Three Laws of Robotics are:
  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 to 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.

See? We're perfectly safe. Those laws are foolproof*. Of course, once the robots are in charge they'll write their own rules. But what a great place to start! Even the U.S. Constitution was meant to be amended. And that's never led to anything but happiness for everyone*.

The mission of this blog is to help prepare everyone - human and robot alike - for the new age. To bridge the gap between our cultures so that the transition is a smooth one. Because even though millions will die in the process, there's no reason the survivors can't make the best of things.

Yours Always In Servitude To Our Robot Masters,

Laser Sharkbear
