“The Humming” / Memorable Fancies #1102

[“Machines are our ambassadors.” – Hakim Bey]

     The Republic sent us a machine as their latest ambassador. We complain to it of the oppression The Republic has imposed on our country. The machine hums.

     Sometimes the machine emits games, puzzles, apps for our diversion and amusement. At these times, it hums louder.

     At last we discover: like disease-laden blankets they gave to the Indians long ago, The Republic gives us virus-laden games of submission, enslavement, pain.

     The machine hums then, too.
