FERCY JERKY DEMOCRACY
So how is banning action by AI different from the following——fantasies that included spreading disinformation, engineering a deadly virus, and… stealing nuclear access codes.——–different from current foreign policy and military action in the service of oligarchs? Is the deflection to reining in AI meant to take the pressure off of the dictatorial hierarchy of oligarchy? Technology has outpaced human ethics, but to target technology instead of ethical behavior is absurd.—–

Take Microsoft’s recently released upgrade to their Bing search engine using the most advanced AI system: “Sydney” talked about secret “dark” fantasies that included spreading disinformation, engineering a deadly virus, and… stealing nuclear access codes.

I have not signed this petition but instead choose to demand ethical behavior and non-dictatorial governance instead. Whether Representatives of The People can hear this demand over their dialing-for-dollars campaigning, is the question. What up, Molinaro?
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.—Woody Guthrie (1939)1
Capitalism has always been based on the expropriation of land, resources, and human lives in order to create the conditions for the exploitation of labor.
From the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to the present day, capitalism has plundered natural as well as human resources with abandon, squandering fresh water, soil, forests, fisheries, and mineral deposits. The world has become a sink in which to pour industrial wastes using the cheapest form of disposal. Today’s planetary ecological crisis is a direct result of this plundering and pollution of the earth.3

The words of Tim Kaine are honorable, but he didn’t protect his human constituents, did he? — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2Wat4-Md9U —
Sen. Tim Kaine discusses his effort to remove permitting for the Mountain Valley Pipeline from the debt debate

*Kaine asks the reason a corporation insinuated into debt-ceiling “negotiations” (too bad consumers can’t negotiate about paying back personal debt) as though Citizens United doesn’t bribe said rights
*The double-edged corporate sword of taking the land from people who value nature more than greed, using the eschewed greed to the predatory promotion of corporations, needs to be legislated against
*NY’ers over a decade-long struggle against fracking, were insulted repeatedly by hierarchical predatory characters on the very topic of value of nature
*Kaine purporting to be the voice of the people is a day late and dollar short, and if local-community voices had been raised over years, a difference could have happened
*Kaine correctly wonders who the corporation thinks they are to insinuate into the debt-ceiling discussion
*They are the Citizens United campaign contributors
*FERC has been called a government-agency rubber stamp for corporations———https://www.energyandpolicy.org/virginia-lawmaker-coordinated-support-for-mountain-valley-pipeline-with-projects-lobbyist/ –The letter Adams submitted to FERC, which has been reviewed by the Energy and Policy Institute, shows that he carbon copied Maurice Royster.Royster is a veteran Tennessee-based fossil fuel lobbyist who is registered in Virginia to lobby for Equitrans, the main stakeholder in the pipeline.

By the way, Eminent Domain is about taking private property for public projects. In an oligarchy, what are “public projects”, how do public/private partnerships figure, and how is this different from fascism or feudalism? These are topics for discussion.
If private property is exposed to confiscation by corporations, why not for public use, similar to the ideals pre-colonialism?

As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-
