I feel like its a nuke situation. Where its going to be made no matter what and nobody is going to wait until someone builds it before them.

The basic defense principle is since it can be neither controlled nor stopped, the best defense is a good offense, therefore lead the pack in the technology. Rather than regulate it, accelerate the rate of development by supplementing industry leaders with government investment.

Hence Google, Facebook, Boeing, Boston Dynamics, etc.

They cannot stop you from programming your own A.I. They can increase the odds theirs will take over first.

This same logic is used to justify the CIA investment in the drug trade. Since we will have drugs, we will control the trade as well.

Seems like it sucks either way. You either accelerate and bring the doomsday clock forward by creating such advanced and independent A.I or we do nothing and a country uses it as a weapon.

Yup - this is why the NWO crowd wants strict restrictions on human development - the creation of a dumbed down class of suboid humans. They say technology is too dangerous now to be continued to be developed by just anyone - and the only way out of the tech trap - which will kill us if we don't control it - is to create an extremely controlled development system - only operated by a special technical class, one which cannot operate independently.

This is one of the big justifications for Global Government by any means necessary. The ends justify the means if failure ensures our extinction. That is their argument.

As long as we are separate nations, then each nation, each corporation, races for competitive advantage. This is true. We have seen the near impossibility of preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Biogenetics is completely out of control, as is A.I. development.

That said, we have been on the edge of nuclear extinction for almost 80 years, and it hasn't happened yet.

The NWO people also say, the aliens will not talk to us, or help us, or allow us to leave, until we get our species under the control of a single planetary government. We are not going to be allowed to go racing around the cosmos with out of control and highly destructive technology. I do not know if this is true or not - but the NWO people are also using this as another justification for their efforts.

Because everyone has been led to believe that it won't exist for at least several more decades.

Politicians only understand one single word: $. They will issue regulations only if and when the first business leader in the industry has delivered to them the proverbial (read: literal) "suitcase sufficiently full of cash". After that point, they will ensure their buyer retains a monopoly in the field through regulatory protections ensuring no other competing business will be allowed to even enter that market.

No one has yet offered a sufficiently filled suitcase of cash, so no politicians have yet even seriously bothered with this topic. It's a shame for them though given a politician is inherently ignorant of progress: their stock portfolios built from behind-the-scenes insider trading and bribes will not fair well given the entire stock market is now fully controlled by AI.

Just my opinion

What's a "voat town hall meeting"? Do you mean /v/askvoat?
