Although The Terminator shows us what chaos would ensue if Skynet ruled the place, but what if it were the government and military specifically? Also, this is a crowdfunded movie, neat.
A robotics company teams up with a corrupt CIA agent undergoing an illegal, unsanctioned military operation. Dropping four prototype robots into a suspected drug manufacturing camp in the Golden triangle that no one will miss. The mission is to prove the robotics company is worthy of winning a lucrative military contract. Six doctors on a good cause witness the brutal slaughter of an innocent village and are forced into a deadly game of cat and mouse as they become the new targets. —IMDB
Worth a watch, but a bit lengthy–2 hours, 11 minutes.
We must stop imposing policies on society’s thoughts or attempt to manipulate their thought process when a policy doesn’t work. We need ourselves to move forward, change our “what we believe to work” methods to “what is working right now” methods. Then, possibly, one is able to put this idea into the “what works” pile to reuse later.
Unpopular American opinion: I support open borders.
Two main reasons–
Many companies support bringing aliens to the US under a neat work program.
There are jobs many existing citizens don’t want anything to do with, so bring in people who will fill the roles.
The other reasons?
America is supposed to be a place of different people, different beliefs.
We are all citizens of Earth. Besides borders for trade, there is absolutely zero reason to prohibit people from crossing land. It’s such an old, stupid viewpoint and now proving unsuccessful almost no matter the participating party.
For a little while iSnick’s Discord channels were available to those not Newb, Pleb and so on. “Everyone” (mostly directed towards those without any applied role and newcomers) was able to view most of all channels, including our precious #development and #meme. Bot functionality beyond games and banking was usually still denied as the Disc Jokey gem is required and so is Citizen. Permissions were set this way to display Citizen’s roaming ability within the economy.
The economy has reverted back to its strict permission levels, meaning newcomers and or those without applied roles will see less (until roles are acquired).
