Don’t you people read Asimov? Robots are bad for humanity, even when they are an apparent positive, and not bent on our destruction.

So clearly, we should not create robots.

Exactly. Beware robots. Of course Steve Sailer thinks it’s great that Japan’s full of robots — it’s an alternative to immigration.
