Mick's current film project, Summoned: Frances Perkins and the General Welfare, is in the editing phase. Here she is in the late 1930's, as the U.S. Labor Secretary, speaking about the future of humanity:
"THUS I came into office at a time when the industrialists of the State are ready to cooperate in any plans which, as they see them, are going to make for the economic and social welfare of the whole community. Now, what of the future? I regard the great mission of the Labor Department, as do all of us who are thinking about these matters, to be the prevention of robots. Whenever I see that picture which is becoming so familiar of the great mechanical man who does things automatically and can perform almost anything that a human being can perform, I confess to chills of horror lest we become like him. I repeat that we are committed to the belief that the human race is not destined for that kind of efficiency, but for an efficiency of the spirit and of the mind. If this robot-man can release us from chores like turning of switches - all right, let him release us! But let him release us to be human beings and let us not develop a race who are going to be patterned after him.
For the realization of this aim we are going to need in this state both intelligence and education on the part of the people who are themselves the problem—that is, capital and labor."
