What Measure Is A Non Human: Machinima

  • Averted in Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction - the Chairman of the Oversight Committee implies that their government has a series of moral guidelines for dealing with AIs. After evidence that the Director of Project Freelancer tortured an AI in his experiments comes to light, the government decides to create a set of strict morality protocols.
    • Subverted: In the Epilogue, the Director justifies his actions, implying that the torture he inflicted on the Alpha AI was acceptable because it was created based on his own mind - he was essentially torturing himself.
      • Of course, even if the main characters knew this, it's highly unlikely they'd be inclined to forgive him. Wash, Meta, and Epsilon certainly haven't.
    • And odds are same with the main Halo universe which RvB is based on.
  • Averted in Freeman's Mind. Freeman has no problem killing anything trying to kill him, alien or human.
