"What the machines print is prayers, roll upon roll, prayers going out endlessly."

These automated prayer machines recall similar devices in Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. In his job at the Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith dictates all the fabricated new stories into a ‘speakright’ machine which ‘rectifies’ the truth. In the fiction department, machines endlessly print cheap, pulpy pornographic novels for the proletariat.
