"So it is finally with the robots you say you fear. Why fear something? Why not create with it? Why not build robot teachers to help out in schools where teaching certain subjects is a bore for EVERYONE? Why not have Plato sitting in your Greek Class answering jolly questions about his Republic? I would love to experiment with that. I am not afraid of robots. I am afraid of people, people, people. I want them to remain human. I can help keep them human with the wise and lovely use of books, films, robots, and my own mind, hands, and heart. I am afraid of Catholics killing Protestants and vice versa. I am afraid of whites killing blacks and vice versa. I am afraid of English killing Irish and vice versa. I am afraid of young killing old and vice versa. I am afraid of Communists killing Capitalists and vice versa. But…robots? God, I love them. I will use them humanely to teach all of the above. My voice will speak out of them, and it will be a damned nice voice."
— Ray Bradbury, in correspondence with a fan, 1974. I also love robots.
