Inspired by Neal Stephenson's novel Snow Crash
( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_Crash )
and experienced via the character of Isaac Asimov's iRobot
( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I,_Robot )
This film is a political sci-fi for Halloween and presents for your consideration;
Under the concept of The War of the Worlds (H.G.Wells),
George Bush's proclamation that 'The United States has no right, no desire and no intention to impose Our form of government on any one else'..
The American Constitutions statement that 'all 'Men' are created equal, but the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened'...
& the opening welcome from the Soviet Voice of Radio Moscow....
Also considering the contrast between the Virtual and Physical realms,
And between the definitions of Sentience and Awareness, as work on creating an autonomous Artificial Intelligence continues.
As iRobot, freesky Repulic,
iRobot Avatar c/o Nikola Shirakawa.
