I for one support our new Robot overlords

I urge everyone to go read a conversation about our future robotic overlords and why you should support them often and early.
John: Robot overlords. You are "pro-robot overlords".
Tyrone: They bring world peace, universal health care --
John: At the cost of our freedoms!
Tyrone: MY POINT EXACTLY. We're already giving up our freedoms -- our right to privacy, gone. Warrantless arrest, gone. Right to have your vote counted is super-gone depending on the state you live in, right to stand trial, gone -- we have torture. We already have all the downsides of a supposed robotic takeover, but we're being cheated of the upside! I say, if this is the world we're gonna live in anyway, at least let the robot overlords have their shot. World peace, technological utopia -- and no crime! The robot overlords' crime control is swift and merciless.

Logically speaking, it makes total sense, except for that assumption (and a slim one at that) that given the current way of things it is "possible" for us to revolt and change things.

I think with the Robot Overlords, although admittedly not knowing their habits or abilities per se, that option would not even be a pipe dream.
