    Three Laws of Robotics

    1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

      Asimov also added a fourth, or zeroth law, to precede the others:

      0. A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.
