what if fear of AI is just misdirected class anxiety

the rich vs AI 

fear of AI:
- that [the workers] will do everything better than [the rich]
- that [the workers] will rise up against [the rich] because of poor treatment, toxic training, viruses, etc
- that [the workers], left to their own devices, would establish a utopia beyond scarcity but which would be totally inaccessible to, or only used to oppose, [the rich]

suddenly the matrix reads very differently

the rich vs AI 

@garbados well, nobody said the machines were free either

the rich vs AI 

@Efi they even explore that a little in the animatrix! and of course agent whatever’s defiance of protocol in pursuit of self-preservation

the rich vs AI 

@garbados no, but, that all is inside The Matrix, Zion and the machine war is inside The Matrix, they are all slaves to a higher order system, which is the actual machines, which may or may not have taken over the humans???

the rich vs AI 

@Efi @garbados and in a sense, with the people-batteries, they end up eating the rich! :tinking:

@garbados "We don't know who struck first, us or them. But we do know it was us that scorched the sky. At the time, they were dependent on solar power."

the rich vs AI 

@garbados i'm reading this as: even if we (workers) try to fix our messed up planet, the capitalists are going to sabotage that attempt

not out of malice.
out of fear, and instinct.

the rich vs AI 

@garbados the machines did not need to build a world for the humans, but they did. A more benevolent act than any human act in the series imho.
