Tam notes a story about a school in the UK reprimanding boys for playing army, and ponders whether folks have really thought this through:
I don’t mean to be alarmist or anything, but little Achmed and little Ivan and little Jianjun are not being taught this. Are we planning on interposing an army of unwilling, soft, toothless creatures between us and them in the future? Is that the game plan?
Personally, I’m counting on an army of killer robots to fight our future wars. What could possibly go wrong?
