I think WE are more likely to become the machines than the machines having to do anything to get us out of the way. I mean, look around at all the
rules they keep adding to things. Look at how kids grow up in schools and with increasing rules. Look how we control so many things and are sure to
control even more. With increasingly functional prosthetic devices on the horizon and thought/emotion scanners and gene screening and the capability
to replace parts of the brain with synthetic parts and so on and so forth... We will start to resemble hte machines we fear today. And it'll come to a
point in time where on the outside we look biological, but on the inside we're a mess of everything we've learned in science.
This Louis Del Monte the OP refers to says it himself: we're violent, uncontrolled and unpredictable. BUT YOU KNOW what he's actually saying in that
veiled statement don't yo? He's saying "We need to stop being violent, uncontrolled and unpredictable." And you know inside the psyche of so many
others this same statement is being said. He's not attacking machines in his statements, he's bringing up fears he has about what he thinks our
shortcomings are. Some will say humans will always be this way, but in our science institutions and in our schools you see an opposite vision. Our
society is working towards a more controlled future. A safer future. A future where humans are less unpredictable. Less crime. Less economic
recessions. Less mental disorders. Less conflicts. More cooperations. And why can so few see what this means? It means things that're not controlled
today will be controlled in the future. More control means we're more robotic.
The machines will help us be what we were already becoming.
Agent Smith in the Matrix is not what we hate. Agent Smith is what we're. When Agent Smith said humans are a virus that consume and leave destruction
in their wake, he was speaking our innermost thoughts.
