Nobody's Opinion

Where Ignorance is Bliss, Tis Folly to Be Wise?

Nobody Wins

I was GOING to try to find an uplifting story for today…what with all the continuing bad news and all..you know, I was lectured today by a lady friend who just couldn’t stand people who didn’t have a cheery attitude about life. (NO doubt trying to tell me something)

So I was determined to find a story of good will to write about…one where the nobody wins… and I remembered that I read about a woman and her twin, who survived the Nazi, Dr. Mengele’s horrible experiments done on her, when she was a small child, and I thought: That’s it! I’ll write about that. What a inspiration!car chase

And then I couldn’t find the story. If you saw my office, you’d know why.

Tonight, on the news, some black man from Kansas City, “just lost it” and started a speed chase down 50 miles of St. Louis highway, in which he just started shooting people, and cars, and cops. They finally caught him just up the street from my house.

Well, not much inspiring there.

And then, the worst news, I thought, for the area..a city just across the river from Ferguson, is going to die a slow and bitter death:

United States Steel Corp said it would consolidate its North American flat-rolled operations and temporarily idle its operations at Granite City, Illinois, citing weak demand and falling steel prices.

The company is issuing notices to 2,080 workers at its Granite City Works facility in Illinois.

U.S. Steel’s shares rose 2.5 percent to $25.32 in early trading on Wednesday.Free Trade

“Global influences in the market like reduced steel prices, unfair trade, imports and fluctuating oil prices continue to have an impact on the business,” the company said.

A stronger dollar has made imports cheaper and steel from China has been flooding the U.S. market in the past few quarters, hurting prices and leading to job cuts and plant closures at a number of steel producers in the United States.

U.S. Steel announced the permanent closure of its Granite City Works coke-making facility in January and cut 176 jobs.

That is a LOT of jobs for that small town. And this is happening all over the country, and the stocks market soars.

This is exactly what only Donald Trump is talking about. Our politicians have done irrefutable damage to us all, with their ‘globalization’ schemes, and poor trade agreements, and it’s been going on for decades. BOTH parties are in on it.

So, maybe by next week I’ll find that uplifting story, in which a nobody little girl, fought hard and lived through the atrocities of Auschwitz.

Or maybe I should just stop watching the news….

“Where ignorance is bliss, tis’ folly to be wise.”

The Biggest Fear for Humanity is NOW A.I. Who Knew?

A. I.Nobody Wonders…

Prince Charles has another problem on his hand: A vast number of elite and VERY rich people are claiming that the real danger of the world will not be global warming…it will be…

MACHINES! A.I.

Artificial intelligence has the potential to make lives easier by understanding human desires or driving people’s cars, but if it were uncontrolled, the technology could pose a serious threat to society. Now, Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and dozens of other top scientists and technology leaders have signed a letter warning of the potential dangers of developing artificial intelligence (AI).

Nobody Wonders...so…let’s get this straight: Robots could pose a worse threat to humanity than the usual earth destroyers….politicians? Or…are they afraid that the governments will make Bill Gates develop an A.I that could literally wipe out whole cities and populations?

Hasn’t that been the subjects of movies made in the last twenty years?A. Il three

Last October, told an audience at MIT that AI is humanity’s “biggest existential threat.” Earlier in 2014, Musk, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and actor Ashton Kutcher jointly invested $40 million in Vicarious PFC, an AI company that is working to create an artificial brain. The co-founders of Vicarious, Dileep George and Scott Phoenix, were also among those who signed the open letter.

Okay. So they all signed this letter saying that it’s the biggest threat to humanity, and then grabbed their checkbooks and put millions into developing the very thing they fear the most?

What’s going on?

Others who signed the letter include Peter Norvig, director of research at Google; Martin Rees, professor emeritus of cosmology and astrophysics at the University of Cambridge; Vernor Vinge, professor emeritus of computer science at San Diego State University; Frank Wilczek, Nobel laureate and physics professor at MIT; and many others

Nobody Wonders: What have all these guys been hiding, that they are not telling us about? The nobodies out in nobody land, living paycheck to paycheck, would just unplug the machine. In the real world, we don’t see any danger at all….except the teenager who feels having to drive his car is interfering with the more important job of texting.

If anything, all this technology is just dumbing us all down. Chinese students are not even learning how to read Chinese anymore they text so much.A. Il Two

And I quote from a most famous source that I’m sure ALL of them have read:

But with the development of industry the proletariat not only increases in number: it becomes concentrated in greater masses it strength grows, and it feels that strength more. The various interests and conditions of life within the ranks of the proletariat are more and more equalized, in proportion as machinery obliterates all distinctions of labor, and nearly everywhere reduces wages to the same low level The growing competition among the bourgeois, and the resulting commercial crises, make the wages of the workers ever more fluctuating. Te unceasing improvement of machinery, ever more rapidly developing, makes their livelihood more and more precarious.—Communist Manifesto

To the lower proletariat, machines pose no more a threat than Al Gore’s prediction that earth was going to die in a few years. We are more worried about how to survive the tyranny of men.

To a nobody, the biggest threat to humanity, is, and always has been…men in power.

If you really believe A.I. is the most dangerous threat to humanity, then don’t build it.

Pretty simple. But, Nobody Wonders what the real reason is behind all this fear..

I bet…it’s all about money and power.

It always is.
