Will Killer Robots Leave Humans ”Defenseless” In the Very Near Future?

By Joshua Krause

You read it in the comment section of every article that is critical of the government, sometimes on this very website. You hear people saying they are ready for the revolution, or asking when we’re going to take up arms against the police state. “When are we going to fight the lackeys of this corrupt system, and take back our rights?” they say.

If you ask me I don’t think physical resistance to this tyranny, should it ever come to that, will be directed towards cops and soldiers, nor do I think it should. Between the military and law enforcement, the armed enforcers of our government are so numerous that every other family in this country has somebody who is a member of these institutions, or at least used to be one. And of course, it goes both ways. Should our nation ever descend into naked tyranny, will these cops and soldiers be willing to persecute their friends, neighbors, and family members, all in the name of the politicians and bankers?

While that question has been endlessly debated for decades, one thing is for certain: those aforementioned elites don’t trust either side of that fight. They certainly loathe and fear the general population but, more importantly, they also don’t trust their cops and soldiers. They don’t have faith that their enforcers will be willing to lock down this country, and usher in their wicked regime. Sure, some of them, maybe even most of them will, but not enough of them are so morally corrupted and obedient, that their plan would succeed.

And why, you may ask, would I think this is the case? Because, if the global elites trusted their own enforcers, they wouldn’t be so hell-bent on building automated killing machines to replace them.

Through agencies like DARPA, the government is working day and night to build warrior robots that are capable of killing without human input. If you want to know when the elites are going to fully implement their regime, I’m willing to bet that it’ll be the day they are capable of mass producing these lethal machines. And that day isn’t as far off as you might think.

Killer robots which are being developed by the US military ‘will leave humans utterly defenceless‘, an academic has warned.

Two programmes commissioned by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are seeking to create drones which can track and kill targets even when out of contact with their handlers.

Writing in the journal Nature, Stuart Russell, Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkley, said the research could breach the Geneva Convention and leave humanity in the hands of amoral machines.

“Autonomous weapons systems select and engage targets without human intervention; they become lethal when those targets include humans,” he said.

“Existing AI and robotics components can provide physical platforms, perception, motor control, navigation, mapping, tactical decision-making and long-term planning. They just need to be combined.

“In my view, the overriding concern should be the probable endpoint of this technological trajectory.

“Despite the limits imposed by physics, one can expect platforms deployed in the millions, the agility and lethality of which will leave humans utterly defenceless. This is not a desirable future.”

So instead of preparing for some kind of shooting war between the elite’s enforcers and the public, maybe you should be considering the robots instead.  It appears that we’re not too far off from a future that resembles the Terminator franchise. Except in this case, Skynet will not be an advanced artificial intelligence. Instead, Skynet will be all too human.
