Would you rather be a comfortable slave to a giant robot or a free desert-wandering wino?
If you had your choice between these two lives which would you pick?
1) Enslaved to a giant robot, forced to spend your entire life performing its every whim without question for fear of getting stomped on, but afforded every material comfort you could imagine
2) Free, but hopelessly lost in the desert with no chance of ever having more than the clothes on your back and two bottles of wine a day.
I like to think I'd take the second choice, but if it was really that simple to choose one extreme or the other I'm not so sure I would.
