artificial intelligence is necessary for the slaves of the future to exist. It cheaper to develop AI instead of paying a decent salary to your employees, so it's development is mandatory for the continuity of the current global power balance. Eventually the entire world will be made of first world countries so labor will no longer be cheap, unless it's done by AI... but it's a long road ahead of us before we reach that destination.

That sounds like Utopia. No slavery and a world full of rich people.

that's the thing! wages will be too high and companies will prefer to get robots to to the work. People will not be rich they will be obsolete if the current global power balance is to be maintained; there will be some rich people with a lot of money and there will be a lot of people (billions) with fewer and fewer job opportunities. The highly skilled folk will still have jobs, but what about the genetically inferior? what do we do with them when their jobs can be performed by machines? We would have gotten to this point sooner , one country at a time if not for globalization which delayed the process, but we will get there eventually... maybe 1000 years from now maybe sooner.

It'll be way sooner than 1000 years, more like 100 considering the rate of change right now. But there are curved balls that may take us in a different direction. Climate change and the survival instinct may combine to unite the people to take control from corporate/state power. Maybe the solution is a world government run by AI programmed to put ethics above profit.

that's what i meant when i was talking about that IRAN thing a while ago! but i didn't say AI, i said some sort of governing body constructed on secularism and human rights principles, modeled after the Vatican or Iran. I don't think man made climate change will affect us that much! i think that when the shit really hits the fan, the UN or some other global institution will pull some sort of state of the art technology (which was on standby for decades, or something like that) that fixes things and they will impose a "climate rollback tax" on the people of the world.

About climate change, it's not the lack of technology that's preventing us doing anything about it, it's politics. When the shit really hits the fan, it will still be politics that gets in the way, so the people will need to rise to the occasion and take over. A secular world government based on human rights may sound great but I think there are 2 main reasons why it won't happen. It doesn't deal with human nature, ie. corruption - and there's no plausible route from where we are today to what you seek; going in that direction, we're more likely to get one world government controlled by a few corporations. I think it is more plausible that we have a "World Spring" that hopefully results in something more like what George Papandreou is imagining. LINK

i don't think a democratic world government is viable, that's why i'm bringing up the governing system of the Vatican and Iran, but instead of a religious ideology and principles we would have a secular, human rights based ideology. When the shit hits the fan, the corporations will no longer ignore the situation and they will be the ones that will lobby for some sort of global institution that will gather taxes from the citizens of the countries of the world to pay those same companies that lobbied for it's existence, to implement the climate change roll back technology that was developed by government institutions such as NASA or the pentagon (on public money) in the first place. It's all a big scam, and we will know when the SHTF when we see corporations lobby for this institutions. As for Papandreos, i don't trust him.

So you are proposing an appointed dictator to oversee democratic governments?

somewhat but not necessarily. The vatican functions differently, no democracy there. But yum summed it up pretty nice, yes. A "moral leader" appointed by a "moral council" who's morality is based on secular principles, human rights and scientific truth rather than islam or any kind of religion. I guess that's what i would like. The politicians cannot be trusted as long as they need money for their campaign.

Sorry for the long delay - I forgot to answer. So how would you safeguard against the great moral leader or moral council getting corrupted, and what do you envisage is a plausible route to such a system from where we are today?

Latest comment: "So how would you safeguard against the great moral leader or moral council getting corrupted," i guess you would do that the same way one does do that when it comes to the Vatican. Implementation? first one writes the manifesto (not me) that puts in writing the ideology that must be followed, then you create a club for people who are sympathetic to the cause and who also pass the "ideology" test (to be taken from the manifesto), then you create a party, when the club/clubs are big enough, then you try to gain power and once there you work your way in the minds and hearts of the people and you follow that by a referendum for voting a constitution that will set in place such a system. Or a bloody revolution, either way. This manifesto must be written by people who are secular, who respect the scientific principle, who put human rights first, etc. It doesn't have to be like Iran or the Vatican, but these 2 systems are a good point of reference from which a better but similar system can be conceived.
