“They [shareholders] dream of dividends, and their dividends are the ruin of mankind.
“No, it is we who are to blame. You, Domin, myself, all of us.
“For our own selfish ends, for profit, for progress, we have destroyed mankind. Now we'll burst with all our greatness.”
- Karel Capek, R. U. R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots), 1920
