Love, Death + Robots Volume 3, Episode 1: What Did Santayana Say?

George Santayana’s 1905 quote is poignant given how humanity “had all the tools to heal themselves but instead they chose greed and self-gratification.” Love, Death + Robots‘ dystopian reality reflects on how humanity continuously chose to ignore the planet’s needs, sapping its riches until there were none more to take. Through greedy pursuits, instead of protecting the earth, the elite humans chose to inhabit a new planet, Mars. Although Mars is “dead and lifeless,” the humans in the episode chose to claim it anyway, proving that they had not learned their lesson when they ruined the earth and the societies that their ancestors had built. When the everyday people tried to force their way onto the spaceships, they were burnt alive by the elite. This is where Santanyana’s other quote rings true, as even as humanity faces extinction, violence and war do not cease, and truly “only the dead have seen the end of war.”

The smaller robot in the Love, Death + Robots episode, K-VRC, appears the most human-like in personality, as instead of learning Santanyana’s lesson, it shouts, “Hey, shut up! That’s boring!” Although unconfirmed, K-VRC, seems to have been programmed by humans as it demonstrates the same capacity for willful ignorance. Like humanity, K-VRC is more interested in the footage of the only spaceship that escaped earth. This spaceship is flashier, more interesting, and an easy way out – everything the humans in the world of Love, Death + Robots desire. It seems like George Santayana’s quotes can be applied to otherworldly robots, as well as humanity.
