Book 12: Force Multiplication — Part III: Fight or Flight


ENNESBY: I'm a little scared, but I have to ask... how exactly did you turn six enemy combat 'bots and a gunship A.I. into your own personal army?

PARA: Are you sure you want to know?  I could still do it to you.

ENNESBY: Ah.  So you haven't done it to me, which means the kind feelings I have towards you are not part of some freshly-hacked compulsion.

PARA: That you know of.

ENNESBY: Still a little scared, only now with fewer kinder feelings.

PARA: The illusion of free will could be part of the hack.
