Neomluvene Divadlo (RUR): Interviews (I)
"And now for my second idea, the comedy about truth. General director Domin tries to prove in the play that technical devolpments liberate man from heavy physical labor, and he is right. Alquist the Tolsoyan architect, believes on the contrary that technical developments demoralize man, and I think that he is right too. Busman thinks that only industrialism is capable of meeting humans needs: he is right. Helena instinctively fears all this human machinery, and is quite right. And finally, the Robots themselves revolt against all these idealisms, and it seems that they are right as well".

Rossum's Universal Robots, 1923).
