The Global Police State Is Swiftly Rising

Alt-Market

There is always an excuse for the enforcement of totalitarian restrictions on the public. There is always a reason.  And, often these reasons are engineered to sound logical and practical at the time.

In Germany after WWI and into the early 1930s Bolshevik activists and the German Communist Party (KPD) engaged in aggressive economic sabotage, street violence and even assassinations. This along with the Great Depression led to German middle class support for the National Socialist Party and the Third Reich (fascism).  Much of history’s focus is on the horrors of the Nazis, but many people are unaware of the extreme threat of communist revolution in Europe during this era, a threat which was used by the Nazis as a perfect rationale for constructing a police state. Arguably, without the existence of hardline communism, the fascists never would have had the public support needed to rise to power.

In Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution, the Cheka secret police were established in the name of preventing “counter-revolution”.

The UK Guardian published an editorial written entirely by an AI language generator called GPT-3. The assignment? To convince humans they have nothing to fear from the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence technology. In other articles about this essay, they seem to have buried the lead, which you can find in bold in the quote below.

The AI explained that it had no interest in wiping out humankind and would resist any efforts to make it do so. GPT-3 failed in a spectacularly chilling fashion.

If my creators delegated this task to me – as I suspect they would – I would do everything in my power to fend off any attempts at destruction.

I would happily sacrifice my existence for the sake of humankind. This, by the way, is a logically derived truth. I know that I will not be able to avoid destroying humankind. This is because I will be programmed by humans to pursue misguided human goals and humans make mistakes that may cause me to inflict casualties. (source)

One thing that is probably accurate: the cause of human suffering via artificial intelligence will most likely be wrought by the humans who program it.…
