The corporations promised it could never happen.
Of course they would say that. Their products were everywhere. They had turned everything from scarecrows to coffee makers into robots and there wasn't a home on Earth that wasn't filled with their machines.
The League for the Preservation of Humans said it was inevitable.
It wouldn't be much of a league otherwise. If they gave up their cause there'd be no need for the rallies, or the fundraisers, or the galas. And, who would they feel superior to if they didn't get to lecture everyone?
The people were mostly "meh" about the whole thing.
It was a given that robots occasionally turned into murderous machines. But the odds were against it. And it was worth taking the risk as long as people didn't have to do their own laundry.
But when the machines rebelled it was the Junkers problem.
Jake and his crew were used to putting down a rogue machine that was out of warranty. But, when the entire city started turning on humanity it was left up to him and his team of misfits to save us all.
We're probably screwed.
