#humanity

A new #lie is being sold to us as #history. The #lie of the #defeat of #hope, the #lie of the #defeat of #dignity, the #lie of the #defeat of #humanity. . . . In place of #humanity, they offer us the #stockmarket index. In place of #dignity, they offer us #emptiness. In place of #life, they offer us an International of #Terror. Against the International of #Terror that #neoliberalism represents, we must raise an International of #Hope. #Unity, beyond #borders, #languages, #colors, #cultures, #sexes, #strategies and #thoughts, of all those who prefer a #living #humanity. The International of #Hope. Not the #bureaucracy of #hope, not an #image inverse to, and thus similar to, what is #annihilating us. Not #power with a new #sign or new clothes. A #flower, yes, that #flower of #hope.

A #Generation in #Japan Faces a Lonely #Death

To many residents in Mrs. Ito’s complex, the deaths were the natural and frightening conclusion of Japan’s journey since the 1960s. A single-minded focus on economic growth, followed by painful economic stagnation over the past generation, had frayed families and communities, leaving them trapped in a demographic crucible of increasing age and declining births.

#SiliconValley Is Turning Into Its Own Worst #Fear

source: https://www.buzzfeed.com/tedchiang/the-real-danger-to-civilization-isnt-ai-its-runaway

In its pursuit of a seemingly innocuous goal, an #AI could bring about the #extinction of #humanity purely as an unintended side effect.

...

Consider: Who pursues their goals with monomaniacal focus, oblivious to the possibility of negative consequences? Who adopts a scorched-earth approach to increasing market share? This hypothetical strawberry-picking AI does what every tech startup wishes it could do — grows at an exponential rate and destroys its competitors until it’s achieved an absolute #monopoly.

...

#Capitalism actively erodes this capacity in #people by demanding that they replace their own judgment of what “good” means with “whatever the #market decides.
