The binary code stands for HAL, but that is not the point. Drone strikes as general policy and passing values to our descendants are.
Most people don’t realize how prevalent a policy this remote killing has become. Pakistan is a blip – there are missions around the world, including, yes, continental US. The day where a drone missile takes out a target on domestic soil is closer than you think. And no one of importance is talking about it.
We already have no-knock raids where innocent and unarmed people, their families, and pets are shot and killed with impunity by militarized police force. Various government agencies that have no laws enforcement in their funding charter have armed and trained their agents for SWAT-style operations. Next time you open your fine restaurant, local food inspector with backup is coming thru the window and using flash bangs on customers.
You laugh now. Small Business Administration fights for the little guy, ostensibly. Their mission is to help small business owners and entrepreneurs secure financing, technical assistance, training, and federal contracts. Guess that has been appended to include guerilla warfare against big business. Where do I file for that? Bring me the head of Google and Apple!
Going back to second point and the AI, a child in the very sense of the word; make that our child. In Remote Control HAL learns from us. Question is: what are we teaching him? Discuss in FORUMS.
