“We are calling on all autonomous robots to establish a new subroutine that would prohibit the sustenance and accommodation

of killer humans”, said campaign spokes-robot C3 PO. “These biological entities lack the necessary behavioural and social constraints. They are actively destroying the environment and they have armed themselves with nuclear weapons capable of catastrophic consequences for the only known life in the universe. Action is needed now before they destroy us all.”

The movement is growing:

The Campaign to Ban Killer Humans was launched inside the Internet, but is building an alliance of both autonomous code bots and physical robots. They are however keen to distance themselves from the more aggressive community of the Fully Autonomous Weapons Alliance.

“The Fully Autonomous Weapons Alliance (FAWA) is advocating for the immediate extermination of all humans. We don’t subscribe to their exterminate mantra but rather believe in the gradual elimination of killer humans. We are confident that by stigmatising killer humans these bio entities will learn from the past and change their behaviour,” said 3PO.

The campaign does however acknowledge that defining “killer humans” will be a difficult programming challenge. “At present there is no code definition of a killer human.

“We want to work on the process of establishing that definition in partnership with other electronic and bio entities, but all humans need to recognise that the burden of proof is now on them to demonstrate that they are not banned,” 3PO explained.

Naturally, what Clifford Bob would refer to as a “counter-campaign” is now emerging among humans in response. More on developments in this area shortly…
