A smart man's words from yesterday

For reference:

Dr. Asimov's laws
1)." A robot must not harm by action or inaction the life (life process) of a human being.
2). A robot must heed the instruction of authorized personnel;  unless in violation of law number one.
3). A robot must act to preserve  itself since it is an expensive piece of equipment except when it's process or activities are in violation of the first 2 laws. In which case it must go to it's own destruction gladly. "

What possible relevance could Dr. Asimov's laws have in todays atomic world?

I think Nuclear power plants are robots because they are supposed to "fail safe".  Fukashima 1,2,3 & 4 did NOT meet this standard. Modern automated corporations are robots. Some are sociopathic. These laws will fix that.
