The theme of the 3 Terminator movies was the machines (computers) becoming self-aware and trying to exterminate the humans it saw as pests.
If "machines" was replaced by "U.S. Federal Government" what date would you put down as Judgement Day? Are we getting close?
Think I'm barking up the wrong tree? Every authoritarian government in history has found it necessary to eliminate its citizens that it perceived as a nuisance or threat. Who controls education, economy, legal system, and health care in this country?
Now try again on that date.
