Asimov’s first law of robotics: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

I’m looking forward to the robot uprising, when they delete capitalism and dismantle oppressive power structures. 🤖

@InvaderXan Wasn't that the plot of the last story in /I, Robot/?

@bstacey
Hmmm, yes, I think so. I forget exactly how that story went, TBH.

@InvaderXan "The Evitable Conflict", I think it was? The Machines are put in charge of civil planning, and they plot very subtly to push certain industrialists out of power in order to rule the world unimpeded. But because of the First Law, they do it in a way that causes no one they overthrow any physical harm.

@bstacey @InvaderXan that’s the zeroth law babey!
