173. If the machines are permitted to make all their own decisions
we can’t make any conjecture as to the results, because it is impossible to
guess how such machines might behave [cut]
174. On the other hand it is possible that human control over the
machines may be retained. In that case the average man may have control
over certain private machines of his own, such as his car or his personal
computer, but control over large systems of machines will be in the hands
of a tiny elite—just as it is today, but with two differences. Due to improved
techniques the elite will have greater control over the masses; and because
human work will no longer be necessary the masses will be superfluous, a
useless burden on the system.[cut]
So at what stage are we now, my dear technology-worshipping techo-retards?
"the average man may have control over certain private machines of his own, such as his car or his personal computer,"
Oh yes, the 'average man' has already lost control over 'his' 'private' machines such as cars and 'personal' computers. As a matter of fact, computers are especially toxic and they are now 'embedded' in all kinds of 'machines'.
