The New Caring Majority

In build­ing this move­ment for a car­ing major­i­ty, we believe that we have to return to our fun­da­men­tal core val­ues. Values that real­ly bring out the best in who we are. Values like respect. Like oppor­tu­ni­ty. Like democ­ra­cy.

What’s real­ly new about robots is that they’re going to be every­where. And it’s also noth­ing new that we can emo­tion­al­ly relate to objects. People have always had the ten­den­cy to fall in love with cars and gad­gets and stuffed ani­mals. But the new thing about robots is what we’re see­ing is this effect tends to be more intense.
