More on the „Chinese Killer Robots“ Campaign

Just found another voice of reason in the German media subculture: „Spiegelfechter“ Jens Berger (I guess the title of his blog is not meant to be addressed against my favorite tabloid magazine/website – at least not primarily… 🙂 ) has also put some effort in debunking the „chinese killer robots“ myth (cf. here). Additionally, he contributed an O’Neill-inspired article about the current China bashing to the German online magazine telepolis.

His arguments even made it into the mind and breathless discourse of German ‚alpha-blogger‘ Robert Basic who admits having had the prior impulse to reject Berger’s postings, according to his own anti-chinese prejudice, and then provides some musing about what it takes to liberate your mind and start to think outside social or nationalistic ‚framing‘.
