I bumped into this Embodied Moxie monstrosity on a Steve Bannon podcast and i SWEAR i thought it was a sendup from something like Black Mirror until i Googled it. It’s real! There really is an evil company out there making robots that will teach your children “life lessons” and that will — if the ad is anything to go by — make your kids LOVE A MACHINE! Call me crazy, but the only things kids should be taught to love are people, animals, milk, cookies, and things like reason and democracy, not A FUCKING MACHINE!!!!
We have truly gone through the looking glass, but instead of landing in Lewis Carrol’s Wonderland we have landed in American McGee’s Wonderland!
