Before Ignacio could collect his thoughts to make his position known, the overamped voice stated, “You were dispatched to this facility along with others of your kind because you won’t cooperate with the conventional wisdom offered by the Master Architects. You won’t use resources properly, you won’t have your children trained properly, and you won’t abide by the decisions made on your behalf.
“Further, your concept of free will has landed you and your family units here under my charge. The masters believed that this compound would help you see the error in your ways, but my programming has observed that it will not.”
In a supreme moment of horror, Ignacio exclaimed “You’re not human! You’re only a program running on a computer!”
The booming voice responded, “Guarding social misfits is a low value exercise.
Computers can do it far more cost effectively and with less brutality.”
Ignacio incredulously stated, “We are being administrated by programs running on a computer because they think this is more human?!”
The computer synthesized voice, now at a deafening volume, blasted, “Now go. Only return if you can better conform to your designated computer program. Your survival depends upon it.”
