Being Human

"Three Prime Laws of Human Community"

Isaac Asimov's "Three Laws of Robotics"

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
I have often wondered what the world would be like if we behaved as humans the way Isaac Asimov's Robots were programed with the 3 prime laws


  1. The Human Community may not injure a member human being or, through inaction, allow that human being to come to harm
  2. The Human Community must administer orders given it by the  majority consensus of member  human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. The Human Community must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
