People have been asking what if robots could take over jobs. We even talked about it in our last BNC topic. So I thought....
What if robots could protest?
Most of you might think this is a crazy idea but people are starting to talk about robots more.
At this point many questions struck in my head like what would robots protest for? , Will they do it peacefully or with violence? Where will they do it? What kind of protest will they do? Who would they protest to? And finally...would their protest work?
Using my knowledge on what I know about robots, I will try and guess what they would do.
What would robots protest for?
Would robots protest for something silly like..''There should be no pineapples on pizzaa.'' or would they protest for something more serious like ''BLM'' or ''Climate Change'' or would they protest for something totally different to what we would protest for? Would they protest for something like this ''You should trust me and have faith in me! I don't need to be controlled by humans! Just trust me.'' In my opinion I think the robots would protest for my last example because I think robots would like more power than they already have.
Would robots protest peacefully or with violence?
To be honest, I think its between. If robots don't get what they want, what do you think they would do? Would they use their features against us or would they just keep protesting until they get what they want? I think that I haven't seen enough of robots to decide. Would they keep trying or start raging and use their features on us? Or would they do both? Or will some do it with violence while others do it peacefully? What do you think?
Another question to think about: If robots could decided what they would like to do by themselves, do you think we would be safe?
Where would robots protest?
Hmm.. where would robots protest? Would they protest underwater, on land or even in space? I don't think they would protest in space or underwater because if they are protesting to humans like the government, the government will not see it if they are in space or in the water because those are places where we can not survive without equipment. So I think that robots would have to protest on land but where on land? Where do you think?
What type of protest will robots most likely do?
I'm going to go throught the kind of protest Olivia and Tom talked about.
I think that if robots do marches, they would hold up signs that say ''Trust us'' or something like that. As I said before I don't know if robots are violent or peaceful so I said I think it's between so I think they might do civil disobedience but because robots don't have laws, I think it would be something similiar to that. I also think that phones , laptops, Ipads and devices like that, count as machines so I think they would be able to protest by Virtual Activism maybe by a robot using a phone to do that or a phone doing it by itself. As I said before people are thinking that robots should take over some jobs that humans are supposed to do so if that did happen, robots might do a strike to change something in their workplace. For silent protest, imagine seeing a robot taking a knee for the support for BLM to show their support for something without using the other types of protests.
Who would robots protest to?
Its obvious that robots will most likely never protest to animals. Just imagine robots doing a riot to a lion. Who do you think would be more powerful? If robots were more powerful than lions, would that make robots, king of the jungle? In my opinion, I think robots would most likely protest to human beings because at the moment human beings have more power than them.
W ould robot protest work?
I actually have no idea because we haven't tryed it before but when I re-read ''Would robot protest work'' My thoughts suddenly changed. I thought was that instead of humans protesting humans make robots to protest FOR them so that they can still get their voice heard but they can still do other things. Maybe by doing so, it can save protester's lives by putting robots to protest for them.
Overall, what do you think about this? What are your answers to these question? You can comment your opinions down below!
