I think that what one would really need to fear is not the machines themselves, but what purposes they have been designed for.
There is always that one person who doesn't let a system of control fool them.

Albeit, that may take thousands of years for anyone to figure it out if a sudden regime of computers was put into place with the intent of deliberately leading people on in various ways.

Oh wait, I already have encountered that in my research on A.I. Academic journals abound in information about technology that's used to do more than just design the NPC in a video game.

Design structures, predict the stock market, .......make you think you should predict what other people do just because the machine can.

In the case that such a thing could happen, it wouldn't be a religious war for me..it would be an issue of control - one that I would find an underground bunker and a heck of ammo for.

And I would be that kid who would be sucked into the Butlerian idealogy and when I die, they would dress me up as a martyr when all I really wanted was to not live in a world where people desire to control others, but they do so with machines and ask you to never question it because "the machine knows what its doing."

edit (after it was initially posted): I notice I am responding to threads that haven't been touched in months. I guess this is my method of catching up.

Guns
Ammo (probably a bullet-making type setup)
Food
LOTS of water
TP
Literature - including LOTS of how-to-books
Alcohol - Medicinal and therapudic
I'm a soda junkie, so I would need a trailer-load of Pepsi
Coffee, cigarettes and cigars to use as currency
I'll need to teach my dog to sniff out machines, or does that only work in the Terminator battle against the machines?


My wife can sew and teach so I'll keep her around to make us an attractive member of a siech, or whatever we'll call our fortified villages. Somehow I don't think a salesman with three kids will be a welcome addition otherwise.

I agree with SandRider. It was a mistake to read through this thread sober....
