hot take on robot uprising 

The fear of "what if sentient robots revolt and kill us all" is the cultural echo of white people's fear of "what if black slaves revolt and kill us all." Stop being acting like slave masters, stop treating sentient beings like property, and stop being afraid.

The real danger from robots isn't that they'll become sentient and refuse to obey us. The real danger is that they'll give the ruling class more power than ever to treat the rest of us like property.

Honestly I'm more afraid that sentient robots will be subjected to hundreds of years of torturous slavery than I am of them rising up and killing me.

PS: Fear of robots taking your job wouldn't exist if we lived in a just society that provided for everyone regardless of your value to the capitalist class.

typo 

"Stop being acting..." was a typo. It should just be "stop acting." I re-read this toot five times trying to find all the typos. Usually I don't care so much about my typos but I wanted to be super duper clear in this toot because I'm being serious. I'm sorry.
