Ah, Barbara, just think what people will say when they are told all these
fractal robots are in their food:
"You mean I'm eating them RIGHT NOW?" (extreme distast and fear)
"Its a conspiracy of the running dog capitalist multinationals to spy on our
insides and cancel our health insurance before we even know we are sick."
"Studies have shown that if you feed 100 lbs of fractal robots to 2 ounce
laboratory mice, they will develop cancer. Therefore, we should not approve
their use."
"Fractal robots will ride on the corn pollen across fields on the wind to
milkweed plants and delouse Monarch Butterflys, which is NOT natural. They
therefore should be banned."
"One out of every 100,000 members of the population has a fatally allergic
reaction to fractal robots, so despite the fact they save 10 out of every
100,000 lives by reducing spoilage, we should let 10 people die so that one may
live... thats logical, isn't it?"
