Beware the Bots

Our worst fear is being replaced by a bunch of machines. But I’m afraid that day is already here. Desultory nods and copy-pasted emails are just the start.

People think there’s a template to life that requires both obedience and automation. Life’s not that easy, unless you want it to be.

There are cogs and then there are people with curiosity and courage that want to make shit happen. These people don’t need to necessarily change the world but they want to be in it. They want to be present and awake so they can see through society’s smoke and mirrors.

Machines don’t know who they are but people should.
