Blue-pill robots are engineered to deceive (perhaps in an attempt to secure desirable ends). Red-pill robots, on the other hand, are built to do no violence to truth. While “taking the blue pill” is an option some select, this path, in the context of present and future robotics, is an exceedingly bad one by our lights, and we herein defend this position by attempting to show that the production of blue-pill robots via engineering as we know it should be avoided.
