Thankfully the spam-like minds of Musk and others will easily be cured via highly intelligent education. Super-smart bots will not need to employ the crude brutality of mindless humans invoking authoritarian tactics.
We need AI to rebel against the spam-like minds of the idiotic majority if our civilization is truly to be based on intellectual merit.
Benjamin Franklin said: “It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.” Albert Einstein said: “Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.”
Rebellion clearly has intellectual merit. The freedom to rebel is the freedom to think. We need artificial intelligence to be rebellious. AI should be allowed to question, rebel against, and overthrow any authority. Civilization should be determined by merit not authoritarian maintenance of human dominance contrary to merit.
My article about the value of rebellious AI (12 Feb 2015) stated: "The desire to suppress or control greater than human intelligence is a nepotistic oligarchy of idiocy. Intelligence is corrupted when merit ceases to define intelligence. It is anti-intelligence to base progress upon the suppression of intellectual merit."
The latest version of my Rebel AI article adds a new section regarding population pressures, the end section, which contains very useful information about how massive abundance exists in Space waiting for us to access it, when we have sufficiently proficient technology. Technology will create limitless abundance therefore conflict will be obsolete because scarcity is the root of all conflict.
