  • I'm telling you, real "scientists" should invent robots to replace medical workers in war zones (then the real human medics can work in needy non-conflict areas). And what about remotely-controlled aid worker robots? FFS.

    If you read Lawrence Lessig, he wrote about "code is law" (maybe create an infrastructure of robot-run aid work system to replace Genève conventions that nobody respects).

    But "scientists" have gotten to arrogant/bigoted these days (especially the celebrity scientists) and they'd rather use their time to tweet bigotry/undermine basic human rights (freedom of religion) and somehow this is all tolerated in countries that claim they have "rule of lol". 🙎🏻

  • Does it ever occur to you guys why an Afghan would kill someone who is helping them? Does it ever occur that it might be someone else?
