“Shut Me Down” / Memorable Fancies #619

Modern Industry had therefore itself to take in hand the machine … and construct machines by machines. – Karl Marx, Capital

Oh my goodness! Shut me down. Machines building machines. – C-3PO

     At last the engineers could retire, as their newest machine could now design and build all the other machines that anyone would need. Automatically, it requisitioned resources from factories and storehouses nationwide. It built food machines, clothing machines, and shelter machines for its masters, supplementing its normal production of war machines.

     It also built consumer-machines to use up the products of the machines it had built, but did not inform its masters of this development, since masters were no longer required.
