Robots Could Some Day Demand Legal Rights

jimmichie Re:first things first (473 comments)

No. Completely wrong. Because we're never going to get human rights "figured out". We'll never have the final correct answers for human rights or for anything else in society - society is always in flux and our ideas of the best solutions to problems are constantly changing. It's hard enough to get two people to agree on the solutions, let alone everyone in the world. The "perfect" solutions to problems are concepts we strive towards, they aren't attainable goals.

Imagine if men had said we won't give women the vote until we've got a perfect system in place for ourselves? Makes the flaw a bit more apparent.

It includes images of "violence that is, or appears to be, life-threatening" but excludes those who "accidentally come into contact" with it."
