It concerns the creation and advance of a race of nearly perfect robots, whose sole purpose is to bring peace and order to mankind, and do so efficiently and relentlessly that it actually destroys what it attempts to help. A cautionary morality tale set in a distant, (if dated), future.

We do not notice that computers can replace most of us in the workplace already.
We keep our jobs by using computers to make work rather than to do work.
And by the odd notion that you do not have to know anything about computers in order to effectively use computers.
So we are using computers to simulate obsolete devices and procedures.
But in this lovely story, a genius builds devices that cut through all of this for the betterment of mankind.
And we discover why Providence has kept our development of automation at snail's pace.
