"You want a machine that has compassion for all life, something like that. That's hard for robotics. It's so hard, I don't know where to start."

I'd say that's a hard thing for humans, too.

At some point I heard, or someone pointed out to me, how the tempo "You Won't See Me" starts dragging about mid-way through the song. And I have never been able to un-hear it. It drive me completely crazy.

No. The only problem with this proposal is that it doesn't go far enough. African Americans need to boycott Capitalism. Period (and, also, I'm dead serious). Buy food, buy clothing, buy shelter, maybe buy art, but Stop Buying Their Shit. Stop buying Their cars, Their electronics, Their plastics, Their packaging, Their services. Stop buying them. Stop Buying Their Shit. Do that, and the world will change in a godawful hurry.

Charles, whenever I go to the ballot now, I have the option of choosing between a moderate conservative candidate on one hand and a right-wing fringe conservative wacko on the other. The reason this is my choice is because when liberals get disgusted with politics, they stop voting. When conservatives get disgusted with politics, they vote ever more conservative.

Please. Not voting may make you feel better, but it is selfish. It is hurting everyone else.

In fact the current mortality rate of humanity is like 93%, so there's always hope.
