Is "Black Mirror" Predictive Programming?
A really terrible apocalypse in "Hated In the Nation" in the new season.
The "Robobee" is announced.
The "electronic bee" that means nowhere would be safe. The State could push a button and kill you anywhere, anytime with facial recognition. Breeding fear of such a weapon in advance could be a powerful tool in bludgeoning the population into acceptance. A lot of television seems engineered to make you slump your shoulders, roll over and die. Resistance is futile, we learn. Any resistance. The people who voted for Trump proved them wrong.
I can assure you this has nothing to do with pollination of flowers and everything to do with a guided swarm of death armies of electronic insects. Previous tyrants could only dream of such things at their fingertips.
After this one I was so scared I actually enjoyed the eternal lesbian affair in cyberspace episode. It seems like a lighthearted comic romp in comparison. It was only a brief respite before the brain chip soldier robot killers show came on. If this stuff is what the future looks like don't bother looking for me I will be with the lesbians in cyberspace.
