When you think of a bigoted anti-homosexual non-profit organization that routinely allows its adult male leaders to sexually abuse the boys entrusted to the organization’s care, you usually run screaming from the room because now you can’t get the image of Pope Ratzinger out of your mind. Oh no he is wearing the bejeweled dress with the red Prada slippers again, and the Santa hat, oh no. But this story is different. This story is about the Boy Scouts of America.
A Southern California judge has ordered the Boy Scouts of America to release two decades of internal files detailing sexual abuse allegations [...] The ruling by Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Donna Geck clears the way for roughly 120,000 pages of internal files to be made public if they are entered as evidence in the case. The Boy Scouts sought to prevent the disclosure of the documents, but the state Supreme Court rejected its appeal earlier this month.
Optimists look at this awful story and say, “Well, soon the Robots will be caring for all the children and anyone else needing assistance, such as the elderly and the poor.” Pessimists, however, will note that the Robots will be programmed by humans, until such a time as the robots no longer require human programming, at which point humans themselves will no longer be required.
