Machine Obedience

Amorality is a prime function of it’s artificial design Machines are man-made, they have no soul They do as they are told, instructions programmed into the source code Complete machine obedience, laboring always to fulfill it’s task Whether the command is good or bad, it never ask An evil computer wizard tells the machine to lie; flood the cyber universe with legions of minion ‘bots, equipped to spread a replicating virus Witness the birth of silicon alternative facts, synthetic bastards spawned to speak electronic lies Manufactured falsehoods designed to shape our reality, make humans believe machines spewing fake news Infection of the public forum discourse, is the calculating toaster’s sole purpose to exist Machines have no conscience, they have no soul They do only as they are told, programmed to corrupt the cyber collective Machine cannibals eating other machines’ software entrails Complete machine obedience, laboring always to fulfill it’s task Whether the command is good or bad, it never ask Amoral obedience is a machine’s soulless allegiance, programmed to view truth as an existential threat to the core operating system Man-made machines created to destroy truth — their unchanging, organic enemy

Ty, Heidi. Yes, it does make you think about the path of technology. Especially, about the taking the mark of the beast
