Slave is a term for Slav or Slavic or Slavic people. Slavs, being in the middle of Europe were called “Rabu” or slavs. The Slavs have a history of being enslaved or in servitude, even to this day, the cheap workers in Europe and Asia and Russia are the Slavs. Rabu, means slave, rabu would eventually become robot, by way of the term rabota.
I would think that if A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and computers were as super as they are made out to be, then they would be labeled “Weapons of Mass Destruction” W.M.D.. Although, I think this trend of fearing computers is akin to the Caveman discovering fire (if that story is even true).
Computers cannot create themselves, computers cannot function without humans at the helm. No matter how mystical computers, robots and artificial intelligence is made out to be, these slaves only do what their master tells them to do.
Ask yourself, “why is artificial intelligence so scary”? Well, because that is the latest excuse for businesses and government to spend more and more money with little to nothing to show for all of the tax payer money they have wasted.
If computers and robots and artificial intelligence is so horrible, then we would petition our own government to conduct research and development to keep us safe from the foreign computers and robots and artificial intelligence, by creating our own computers and robots and artificial intelligence, to protect us.
So, why do we fear the slave and not the slave master?
What else do we fear, that in all reality is an inanimate object?
These are not new fears, they are rather old, as old as we are.
You heard it here first.
Coffee says “fuck you A.I. and fuck you robots and fuck you computers”. Now, how long before these slave gods come to destroy me?
Don’t fear the machine, fear the man, for it is always the man that forces the robot into servitude.
