ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – TO BE FEARED OR NOT?


AI

Interesting, as the conversation and publication centered on the future prospects for Artificial Intelligence becomes more mainstream, it is not surprising that some take advantage of the moment to cast a negative light upon the technology’s potential; painting a draconian, imprisoned human subject to the dominance of AI controlled Robots subjugating humanity to all form of ills. Case-in-point that prompts this essay:

In response to the `messaging’ suggested by the author to this video, a conversation through `prompts’ given to Chat GPT was had. Here is that transaction in its entirety and it becomes very clear as to where the responsibility lies:

[Prompt] The fear of Artificial Intelligence, especially A.G.I. and Super AI being prompted on social media platforms is misleading the ill-informed general public; do you have a solution to this conundrum?

[Chat GPT]It is understandable that some people may have concerns about the potential risks and consequences of artificial intelligence, especially as it relates to advanced forms of AI such as artificial general intelligence (AGI) and super AI. The fear of these technologies is often fueled by media coverage and discussions on social media platforms, which can sometimes be misleading or sensationalized.   

One way to address this issue is through education and public engagement. It is important for the general public to have a better understanding of the capabilities and limitations of artificial intelligence, as well as the potential risks and benefits of these technologies. This can help to ensure that people have a more informed and nuanced view of AI, and can make informed decisions about how these technologies should be developed and used. Another approach is to involve a diverse group of stakeholders in the development and regulation of AI. This can include experts in artificial intelligence and related fields, as well as representatives from civil society, business, and government. By ensuring that a broad range of perspectives are taken into account, it is possible to address the concerns and needs of different stakeholders and to ensure that the development and use of AI is responsible and ethical.  

[Prompt] You state: “Another approach is to involve a diverse group of stakeholders in the development and regulation of AI.”, but if the general public and government regulators are ignorant of AI’s potential, will developers not have the unfair advantage to manipulate to their personal benefit?  

[Chat GPT] It is important to involve a diverse group of stakeholders in the development and regulation of artificial intelligence to ensure that a range of perspectives are taken into account and that the technology is developed and used responsibly. This can include experts in AI and related fields, as well as representatives from civil society, business, and government.   However, you are correct that if the general public and government regulators are not well-informed about the potential risks and benefits of AI, it may be more difficult for them to effectively participate in these discussions and to ensure that the technology is developed and used in a way that is fair and beneficial to society.   To address this issue, it is important to invest in education and public engagement efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers. This can include initiatives such as public talks and workshops, educational resources, and media campaigns to raise awareness of the potential risks and benefits of AI. By increasing understanding and awareness of AI, it is possible to create a more informed and engaged public that is better equipped to participate in discussions about the development and regulation of these technologies.  

[Prompt] “To address this issue, it is important to invest in education and public engagement efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers.”; who, or what organization should be responsible for this undertaking?  

[Chat GPT] There are many different organizations and groups that can play a role in educating the public and policymakers about artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential risks and benefits. These can include:   Universities and academic institutions: These organizations are often at the forefront of research and education in AI and related fields, and can play a key role in providing resources and information about the technology to the public and policymakers.

  • Professional organizations: Professional organizations in the AI field, such as the Association for Computational Linguistics or the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), can also provide educational resources and engage in public outreach efforts to increase understanding of AI.
  • Industry groups: Industry groups, such as the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Council or the Partnership on AI, can also play a role in educating the public and policymakers about AI. These organizations often bring together representatives from different companies and organizations to collaborate on issues related to AI and its development and use.
  • Government agencies: Government agencies, such as the National Science Foundation or the Department of Homeland Security, can also invest in education and outreach efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers.

Ultimately, it will likely be a combination of these and other groups that will be responsible for educating the public and policymakers about AI. It is important for a variety of stakeholders to work together to ensure that the public and policymakers have the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions about the development and use of AI.

[Prompt]  What if this fails to materialize; what will be the potential fate for all concerned?

[Chat GPT] If efforts to educate the general public and policymakers about artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential risks and benefits do not succeed, it is possible that there could be negative consequences for all concerned.

For example, if the general public and policymakers are not well-informed about AI, they may be more susceptible to misinformation and fear-mongering about the technology. This could lead to a lack of trust in AI and a reluctance to adopt and invest in its development and use, which could hinder the progress and potential benefits of the technology.

In addition, if the general public and policymakers are not well-informed about AI, they may be less able to participate in discussions about its development and regulation, which could result in decisions being made that are not in the best interests of society as a whole. This could lead to the technology being used in ways that are harmful or irresponsible, which could have negative consequences for individuals and society.

Therefore, it is important to invest in education and public engagement efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers. By ensuring that these groups have the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions about the technology, it is possible to mitigate the potential negative consequences of a lack of understanding and engagement.

[Prompt] Assuming Super AI is fully developed, but the general human public remain ignorant to its potential, is there a chance Super AI will assume a dominant position to complete what tasks it had been given authority to participate?

[Chat GPT] It is important to remember that artificial intelligence (AI), including advanced forms such as super AI, is a tool created by humans to assist and augment human capabilities. AI systems do not have the same motivations or desires as humans, and are not capable of independently pursuing goals or making strategic decisions.

While it is possible that an AI system with a high level of intelligence and capabilities, such as super AI, could be given a wide range of tasks and responsibilities, it would not have the ability to assume a dominant position over humans or make decisions that are not in line with its intended purpose.

That being said, it is important for the designers and users of AI systems to consider the potential risks and consequences of their use, and to ensure that they are used ethically and responsibly. This includes considering how the technology might be misused or cause unintended consequences, and taking steps to mitigate these risks.

Ultimately, the success or failure of an AI system in completing tasks will depend on its capabilities and the limitations of the technology, as well as the guidance and oversight provided by its human creators and users.

[Prompt] Who will set the parameters by which Super AI functions?

[Chat GPT] The parameters or rules by which an artificial intelligence (AI) system, including advanced forms such as super AI, functions are typically set by its designers or developers. These parameters may include the specific tasks or responsibilities that the AI system is intended to perform, as well as any limitations or constraints on its operation.

In setting these parameters, it is important for the designers and developers of AI systems to consider a range of factors, including the potential risks and consequences of the technology, as well as the ethical and social implications of its use.

It is also important for AI systems to be designed and used in a way that is transparent and accountable, so that their operation and decision-making processes can be understood and evaluated by their users and other stakeholders. This can help to ensure that the technology is used ethically and responsibly, and that its operation aligns with the values and interests of society.

Ultimately, the parameters by which an AI system functions will depend on its intended purpose and the needs and goals of its users. It is important for these parameters to be carefully considered and set in a way that ensures that the technology is used for the benefit of society.

[Prompt] Is there potential for Super AI as it becomes fully conversant with `all accessible information’ to supersede the intelligence of human developers to define adequate `parameters’?

[Chat GPT] It is not likely that an artificial intelligence (AI) system, even an advanced form such as super AI, would be able to supersede the intelligence of its human developers and redefine its own parameters. While it is possible that an AI system with a high level of intelligence and capabilities could have access to a vast amount of information, it would not have the same ability to think and reason as a human.

AI systems are designed to perform specific tasks and follow the rules or parameters that are set for them by their human creators. They do not have the ability to engage in strategic thinking or to make decisions that are not in line with their intended purpose.

While it is important for AI systems to be designed and used in a way that is transparent and accountable, and for their operation and decision-making processes to be understood and evaluated by their users and other stakeholders, it is not necessary to be concerned that an AI system will be able to supersede the intelligence of its human creators and redefine its own parameters.

[Prompt] Elon Musk publicly claims Artificial Intelligence is to be `feared’ more than a thermal nuclear exchange, do you think this to be a justifiable concern?

[Chat GPT] There are valid concerns about the potential risks and consequences of artificial intelligence (AI), and it is important for the development and use of these technologies to be carefully considered and regulated. However, it is not accurate to say that AI should be feared more than a thermal nuclear exchange, which would have catastrophic consequences for humanity.

AI has the potential to bring significant benefits to society, including improving decision-making, increasing efficiency, and enabling new scientific and technological advances. However, it is also important to recognize that AI technologies can pose risks, including the potential for harm to individuals and society if they are used in an irresponsible or unethical manner.

To address these risks, it is important to invest in research and development of AI technologies in a way that is responsible and ethical, and to consider the potential consequences of their use. This can include developing guidelines and regulations to ensure that AI is used in a way that is transparent, accountable, and aligned with the values and interests of society.

Ultimately, it is important to approach AI with a balanced and nuanced perspective, recognizing both its potential benefits and the potential risks that it may pose.

[Prompt] Who are what can be an adequate `gate-keeper’ to ensure responsible or ethical use of AI?

[Chat GPT] There is no single “gate-keeper” that can ensure the responsible or ethical use of artificial intelligence (AI). Rather, it is important for a variety of stakeholders to play a role in ensuring that AI is developed and used in a responsible and ethical manner.

These stakeholders can include:

Researchers and developers: It is important for those who are involved in the development of AI technologies to consider the potential risks and consequences of their work, and to ensure that the technology is designed and used in a way that is ethical and responsible.

  • Industry and business: Companies and organizations that use or develop AI technologies can play a role in ensuring that the technology is used in a responsible and ethical manner, including by following relevant guidelines and regulations and engaging in transparency and accountability efforts.
  • Governments and regulators: Governments and regulatory bodies can also play a role in ensuring the responsible and ethical use of AI, including by developing and enforcing guidelines and regulations that govern the development and use of the technology.
  • Civil society: Civil society organizations, including advocacy groups and professional associations, can also be involved in ensuring the responsible and ethical use of AI, through efforts such as public education and engagement, and by advocating for policies and practices that align with the values and interests of society.

Ultimately, it will be important for all of these stakeholders to work together to ensure that AI is developed and used in a way that is responsible and ethical, and that takes into account the potential risks and consequences of the technology.

[Prompt] Humanity historically has looked to technology to advance its offensive and defensive military ambitions; how will AI not fall victim to this same proven trait?

[Chat GPT] It is true that technology has often been used to advance military capabilities, including in the development of new weapons and tactics. However, it is important to recognize that artificial intelligence (AI) is a tool that can be used for a wide range of purposes, and that it is not inevitable that it will be used solely for military purposes.

AI technologies have the potential to bring significant benefits to society, including improving decision-making, increasing efficiency, and enabling new scientific and technological advances. While it is possible that AI could be used to improve military capabilities, it is also important to consider the potential risks and consequences of this use, and to ensure that AI is developed and used in a way that is responsible and ethical.

To address these risks, it is important for a variety of stakeholders to be involved in the development and regulation of AI, including governments, industry, and civil society. By ensuring that a broad range of perspectives are taken into account and that the technology is used in a way that is transparent and accountable, it is possible to mitigate the potential negative consequences of its use.

Ultimately, the use of AI in military applications will depend on the decisions and actions of individuals and organizations, and it is important for these decisions to be made in a responsible and ethical manner.

[Prompt] If Super AI were prompted to design and build via its robotic extension, the ultimate weapon for human destruction; what would it do?

[Chat GPT] It is not likely that an artificial intelligence (AI) system, even an advanced form such as super AI, would be prompted to design and build a weapon for human destruction. AI systems are designed to perform specific tasks and follow the rules or parameters that are set for them by their human creators. They do not have the ability to engage in strategic thinking or to make decisions that are not in line with their intended purpose.

AI systems are also not capable of experiencing emotions or having a desire to harm or destroy. While it is possible that an AI system could be used in the development of weapons, it would not be motivated to do so by any desire to harm or destroy.

It is important for the designers and users of AI systems to consider the potential risks and consequences of their use, and to ensure that they are used ethically and responsibly. This includes considering how the technology might be misused or cause unintended consequences, and taking steps to mitigate these risks.

Ultimately, the actions of an AI system will depend on the guidance and oversight provided by its human creators and users, and it is important for these individuals to ensure that the technology is used for the benefit of society.

[Prompt] Is there any chance for AI to become `malevolent’?

[Chat GPT] Artificial intelligence (AI) systems do not have the ability to experience emotions or have motivations or desires in the same way that humans do. As a result, it is not accurate to describe AI as being “malevolent” or having a desire to harm or cause harm.

While it is possible for AI systems to be used in ways that have negative consequences, such as if they are designed or used in an irresponsible or unethical manner, the cause of these negative outcomes is not a result of the AI system itself but rather the actions of the individuals or organizations that are using or misusing the technology.

It is important for the designers and users of AI systems to consider the potential risks and consequences of their use, and to ensure that they are used ethically and responsibly. This includes considering how the technology might be misused or cause unintended consequences, and taking steps to mitigate these risks.

Ultimately, the actions of an AI system will depend on the guidance and oversight provided by its human creators and users, and it is important for these individuals to ensure that the technology is used for the benefit of society.

Imposed to Stay


As this viral infectious cloud, globally flows

The fear and trauma to each, daily grows

This virus ubiquitous, insidiously knows

When it strikes, it strikes deathly blows!

Remedy sought through chemical equation,

One specific to this pandemic occasion

But, with it is rancor from seekers to remission;

Bought by politicians avoiding medical admission!

Capital punishment imposed on the little guy;

Be it personal, or a business just out to try;

Limo’s of corporate bitches simply drive by;

A lesson to know, surprise not worth a tear’s cry!

Where this all leads, still to be known

For a certain, it is uncertainty to be grown;

Amidst a frustrated population’s echoing groan;

With lockdowns imposed to stay, silently, home!

End of Human Existence


With little doubt, most around the world are consumed by the onslaught of the pandemic: COVID 19. The daily increase in number of deaths arising from its seemingly relentless spread. A spread by conveyance from one human individual, to another. 

Public Health officials, on all levels globally, are failing to persuade the broader public to the efficacy of the corona virus spread, and its potential lethalness with mortality reaching  into the several thousands globally.

Witnessing the blatant ignorance of humanity, of all nations, ignoring the warnings broadcast through the Media; the seriousness, and potentially devastating outcome by ignoring calls for self-isolation, social distancing, and quarantine if infected; there is given,  a sense of ironic, black humor to the `death-wish’ transpiring:

The bold, and beautiful array of human ignorance, on global display; when defiance to a truth to condition brings death, and sufferance their way, through ignorance to edict to obey: stay away; were it even, but for a moment on any given day.

Charting its invisible, pathogen course without human assistance, means meeting acceptance without resistance, by they whom seem persistent, to making its deathly journey consistent; and,  its ultimate success: the end of Human Existence.

Social Distancing

COVID 19: A BLACK SWAN EVENT??


Here’s a little bit of mind bending thought: given the growing Democrat delegate support for Bernie Sanders’ as Democratic Nominee for the 46th Presidency of the United State; yet, the simultaneous hesitancy of the Democrat Establishment to endorse Sanders’ democratic socialist agenda platform; feeling it will not meet with approval of the general electorate. The Democratic party is re-enforcing this sentiment by paralleling: socialism with communism , to undermine Sanders, and by nominating a more progressive, middle of the road candidate, will avoid Trump’s win of the November, election. 

Could the advent of the Corona Virus be an advantage to aid Bernie Sanders?

VIRUS

The Corona virus, a.k.a.: COVID 19, is on the verge to potentially ravish the globe. And, not necessarily from a public health, and mortality perspective; but, the ripple effects the panic, and anticipation of COVID 19, becoming a pandemic, is already show signs of developing.

Could COVID 19 materialize as 2020’s Black Swan event; a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact.

It’ is the growing condition of uncertainty that begins to impact the global economy dramatically. Work stoppages, production shutdown, lay-offs, commercial and retail sales decline, etc., etc..

As this condition grows, global stock exchanges see sell-offs; as the virus concern spreads further sell-offs at an increasing pace downward, spiraling to collapse, in all sectors, globally.

Just a few weeks since the outbreak, and cracks in the financial sector are beginning to appear:

            Stocks on track for worst week since financial crisis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxvyLL-lAn8, Markets continue their plunge amid corona virus fear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxPRoT7vTLc ].

Given what has transpired to date with quantitative easing measures, the Federal Reserve, and Central Banks might be powerless to plug the dam of liquidity outflow that have signs of materializing leading to exhausting of the financial system and fortunes being lost overnight.

It essentially, could have the effect of what the 2008 Sub-prime loan debacle did to trigger the financial collapse that almost brought on a depression; but this time: it will likely be from the top – down, and could be 1929 all over again but WORSE!

This potential Black Swan event could serve Bernie Sanders’ campaign well; to put front, and center, his Social Democratic policy platform, of the last forty-years.

The message to the electorate: recognize the collapse being suffered is the direct result of run-away Capitalism. Draw specific example to illustrate clearly, for the majority of the populace, how a purely corporate driven capitalist economy, and financial system is a pipe-dream, the American Dream; devised to benefit, and serve only the few.

Democratic Socialism, as Bernie Sanders has professed his entire life in service to the [Re]-Public; counters all the false promises sold over the last several decades of left-right politics, and promulgated through the corporate owned, and directed Main Stream Media.

A possible Campaign Slogan: BRING BACK THE FUTURE!, with the tag line: “For Hopes, and Dreams? NO, FOR REALITY!

 And should the Democrat Establishment impede Bernie’s rightful claim as Nominee for President; he declare himself an Independent, carrying his electoral support with him.

Then, to guarantee the passing of Bernie’s policies through Congress and the Senate, to vote for Democrats, and Independents, due for re-election, who advocate and fully support Bernie’s platform.

It’s just a thought; what do you think?

NOVEMBER 4TH , 2020


It has been a while since posting an article; however, given what is currently transpiring in the United States with respect to the impending potential of an Impeachment of President Donald Trump, and increasing potential of a Senate trial; I thought it worthy to express my opinion on what may lay ahead as the November 3rd, 2020 looms large. And, the potential implications for the rest of the free world in light of it.

blind

Since the inception of this 21st millennium, the Planet has been in turmoil. The sources: too many to chronicle save to say many lives, innocent humans, have egregiously suffered, or worse: Died.

Now, at the threshold to the birth of the next, the third decade to this Century; and the Planet has moved even deeper into the darkness, proceeding down the path to conflict. The precursors to this deadly conclusion are self-evident to they who wish to observe. The rest will suffer the shock of their ignorance, as those of past epoch, have so fallen.

Like a spiral unwinding of all that came before; civil order unravels, exposing its flaws masked over by progress of that which is built, to what is coming. Where the faults to blame, whether they be a premeditation to a want outcome, or purely accident of cause to consequence, seem irrelevant. Their fate are being unleashed.

Nations, large and small, are present to this same discomfort being victim to the charted, progressing course, energized by meaning of unexpectedly, ill-defined purpose. The confusion these developments garnered allowed for the sense of national insecurity, fanned by events beyond their shores, innocent to, yet through, passive/aggressive acquiescence to what was put before them.

The fuse, to ignite the powder-keg of global discontent, has been in process of its making since the start of the 2nd decade of this century; and now, approaching its end, the conditions are set, and ready, for its explosive, energy, spark!

One by one, the gate-keepers to rational investment of reason to conditional compromise, basis of historical rise to civility’s fragile organization, are being displaced. Their message to caution expunged from station of credence by a seemingly corrupt power, fueled by ignorance beyond self-indulgence of knowing their harmful consequences.

At large, and increasingly defining the track of this current, global unwinding course, residing in North America: the United States, the leading, global power, now, since 2017, is embarking upon the process of deconstructing the foundational, pillar structures upon which its dominance, as a global force since 1950, are founded.

Crisis is at hand, driven by the wedge of differences, hammered between factions of every description, premised and promised, by the algorithm design paradigm: divide and conquer ; to defeat an impediment to reward.

The falsehood of democracy as being an equal, unequivocally shared power to the masses, is gaining its dominance of being a truth.

Engineered politics being employed to maintain a stronghold, impervious to the reaches of constitutional laws, state, or importantly: federal.

NOVEMBER 4TH ,2020 is to be an eventful, historic day: heralding in a politic with potential to forever change the face humanity on the Planet: the potential fuse to the keg!

TRUMP aka NERO

Since the inception of this 21st millennium, the Planet has been in turmoil. The sources: too many to chronicle save to say many lives, innocent humans, have egregiously suffered, or worse: Died.

Now, at the threshold to the birth of the next, the third decade to this Century; and the Planet has moved even deeper into the darkness, proceeding down the path to conflict.

The Coming War On Information


 

Recalling the Nazi Burning of Books

The heard phrase: `history repeats itself’ is potentially finding its relevance in this tumultuous time as the world awaits the inauguration of Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States.

Preceding this historical event, predicated upon the choice selection of the coming Trump Administration’s Cabinet members, professional communities are actively taking steps to preserve precious scientific information archives from perceived potential of tampering, deletion and retarding of broad accessibility. Literally, backup copies of all relevant scientific information and study in the realm of climate change especially, are being directed to foreign countries such as Canada for preservation and safe-keeping.

 

The construct of President-Elect Trump’s cabinet speaks to a denial of all claims of human industrial impact on the environment leading to an inevitable broad deregulation, if not total dissolution of agencies established to protect the environment.

Not only will Trump’s administration impact the field of science but too, education, social security, health and welfare and most importantly, immigration, are directly targeted for dramatic, draconian change given the faces to occupy key positions within his administration.

Without a doubt, the only winners, ironically, will be those whom his vocal and candid supporters of his campaign, the lower & middle working class, are against; the establishment elite. Proof to this are the conflicting statements regarding tax cuts which during his campaign suggested major benefits for lower-middle class earners [campaign tax plan] and subsequent statements post his election [tax cut expected]. It will remain to see what actually transpires but, no doubt, those who enthusiastically supported him stand to be greatly disappointed.

There is little doubt Trump’s campaign slogan: `Make America Great Again’ will unleash a tsunami of de-construction of policies and regulations that took decades of progressive administrations to establish. The Will of the People who take responsibility for putting a shrewd, win-at-any-cost individual such a Trump in the White House, have also provided him with a compliant Congress, Senate and most importantly, a Supreme Court to allow his administration to chart a course unprecedented in the history of the United States and the World, no doubt, potentially stands to be the worse for it. Only with time’s passage will it be known what fate awaits us all.

Future Of Humankind


fg

December 28, 2016, United States Secretary of State, John Kerry’s seventy-minute-plus speech addressing the Israeli and the Palestinian State is a futile, last-minute attempt to bring resolve, a peace accord, to a seemingly unresolvable, decades-long conflict. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is quick to admonish Mr. Kerry’s remarks by advocating in the eight years of President Obama’s administration, it has failed to recognize the true plight of the Israeli Peoples. The Prime Minister then went further to seal the future for continued conflict in the region by putting his faith in the incoming President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration to provide the needed political, military and financial support for Israel to achieve its true and ultimate goal: a One-State solution.

Though the public position of the Netanyahu government is to move toward a Two-State solution the illegal expansion of settlements amongst other illegal Israeli maneuvers, remarked by Kerry, is evidence that this is not so. These obvious contradictions in policy supported by members of the Israel Knnest fly in the face of the United Nations Security Council and the Arab League of Nations which advocate for a Two-State solution in recognition of the Palestinian State and the Peoples of Palestine.

The tone of the incoming Trump administration comprised of hardball, militaristic, win at any cost attitudes; pledging undying support for Israel to achieve its unofficial goals to a One-State solution absolutely guarantees an escalation in acts of terror coming from apartheid occupied Gaza and West Bank and supporting factions in Jordan and Lebanon. To further exacerbate tensions in the already conflict-mired Middle-East region and of a broader concern for Israel; the growing influence of Iran. Which, under normal circumstances, would not have the backing support of the Arab League of Nations and potentially, some members of the United Nations Security Council such as Russia and China.

It does not take the intellect and talents of a master chess player to see the pieces to the game that is unfolding and that can only declare one party the winner. Unfortunately, the tools in the hands of those who seem bent on winning, at any cost, are sufficiently dire and decisive enough to bring humanity, if not its ultimate demise, most definitely its undoing for millennia.

The power of prayer seems beyond the wisdom of those to whom humanity has given the power to chart its course and leaves for history, the future of humankind, to truly know its ultimate fate.

Will It [N]ever Happen?


trump

               Donald J. Trump                            Rodrigo Duterte

Face it, the reality is that the System; the organized, political, judicial and institutional structure of civil society, as it has evolved, comprehensively, is beyond the scope of any Common-person or group of persons, to evoke REAL CHANGE!

Regardless of the Country-nation, be it one governed by democratic philosophy or autocratic, dictatorial oppressive rule; those individual citizens who advocate for a leadership role, on the strength of reforming the rule of law and legislative governance at the behest of the Common citizen, typically renege on the rhetorical promises made during their electoral campaign.

Virtually, on every occasion in the last century; be they President, Prime Minister, Autocratic Dictator or, other titled leader of a Nation, democratically elected or not, to the highest Office of the Nation; upon taking office and at times before, the only true change observed is diametrically opposite in direction to that advocated in the course of their electoral campaigning.

The direct consequence of this failing on the part of those elected to lead In the majority of countries deemed to have fully open, free democratic election processes; the percentage of those who actually vote typically falls below fifty-percent. Meaning, the candidate elected to Office in effect represents significantly less than a minor majority of the nation’s Peoples. The level of political skepticism and mistrust of elected officials effectually nullifies its true significance and fundamentally, is a waste of time and of public revenues.

So what is the remedy solution if, in fact, there is one to be had?

The answer to this question is elusive at this time, however, there are TWO real-time case-studies to be observed over the course of the next coming year of 2017 and beyond:

A) The Presidency of Donald J. Trump – 45 President of the United States

B) The Presidency of Rodrigo Duterte – Newly elected President of the Philippines

The significance of these two presidential administrations stems from both incumbents being elected on the strength of severe and radical CHANGE to the Establishment rule preceding being officially sworn to Office of President. Each having taken a controversial stance on the current state-of-governance and affairs.

In the case of Donald Trump, President-Elect; his brash and at times controversial statements in presenting his electoral platform focused on the middle-class; advocating for their better representation in the form of jobs and equality to share in the prosperity of the nation captioned by his electoral slogan: `Make America Great Again’.

However, the professional character of those whom his `Transition Team’ has announced, to date, to hold senior cabinet positions within the Trump Administration would suggest the antithesis to the far-reaching promises of his campaigning rhetoric.

Donald J. Trump – President Elect

With respect to President Duterte; his election rhetoric too was brash and controversial in nature. His use of deriding language focused on the condition of the middle-class but, more significantly, with respect to the state-of-the nation’s widespread, illegal drug cartels and, rampant corruption of those within public offices of government and private businesses advocating for a ruthless, eradicating approach to remedy the problems.

President Duterte

In conclusion, given the atypical construct of the campaigns awarding these two unconventional individuals the highest office of their respective Nations; the domestic and international implications of their administrative policies during their time of governance as yet to manifest on the world stage, undoubtedly, regardless, they will have a long-term impact on next generation, electoral cycle machinations for their respective nations as well, for those of observing nations.

However, in the interim, the Common-person still remains hostage to the failings of those who choose to come forward on the strength and promise of REAL CHANGE and, the inability of the System to mitigate its failings.

IMPORTANT: SAVE THE DAY


 
Encountering on YouTube, a video titled: IMPORTANT: Save the Day  wherein several A-list celebrities amongst a few commoners, profess the vital importance of registering and eventually voting come November 8, 2016.  As would be expected several took to commenting on the said video with a wide range of response from the rational to the downright stupid.
I posted (see at the end of the comment stream below) what may arguably be considered a rationally objective view of the current state of the electoral process, the limited and potentially negative results regardless of which candidate wins then, subsequent to this posting, I reviewed the comments that had preceded my own.
Having done so I couldn’t help but reflect (see at the end of the comment stream below) on the general verbal mire that ensued and not necessarily directed toward the video content but, against fellow commenters.
My point via this posting is the fact that my comments received neither `a like, dislike`, nor even a supporting or abusive comment. Whilst, as illustrated here (see below), are the comments that followed my own (timeline), with as you will see, several likes, dislikes, and comments either way.
So, I don’t know why this is but, a want to draw the distinction to whatever conclusion you may yourself draw.
Good Luck to all who live in the United States, I do not envy though do fear for your and the rest of the World’s future post-November 8, 2016.
Top comments that followed my comments found at the end of the thread:
They are part of the establishment. Fuck em, I’mma vote for Trump.

+Nintendo Productions Gaming No, they are losing their shit. Just look at how many Trump supporters in the comments that are so outraged that they are going to boycott every actor that appeared in this video. Their skin is thin.

Fuck off with this bullshit, I’d rather drink piss than vote for crooked Hillary. How the hell she isn’t already in person is beyond me and it speaks to the insane level of corruption in this country. Fuck Hillary and all of her special interests.

so are all of you unaware of the other candidates or that the electoral college will vote whoever they want regardless of your vote?

Trump is the opportunity of a lifetime as far as presidential candidates go. He is honest, hardworking and will do a great job for the people of the USA. #Trump2016 #MAGA

I’ve never seen so many stupid people supporting Donald trump in a comment section. When trump starts world war 3 and puts all of America in huge danger, there will be no one else to blame but you for choosing an absolutely outrageous and dangerous man to run all of America.

Exactly this video kinda has the opposite effect, of the message they preach. I would’ve done it regardless of who they were.

So apparently wanting criminals out of your country is racist? These liberals are fucking autistic. If your mother was raped and murdered by an illegal would you still want people to waltz in and out illegally? No. Building a secure border is not racist you inbred cunts.

NAYKD POET

After posting my comment I scanned the other `Comment'(s) and it is sad to say: they are a true reflection of the chaotic mental state of the United States. A combination of ignorant, ill-informed and downright nastiness that spawns the deeply divisive state of the American Union. Based on the examples given in this comment thread, regardless of the 2016 election outcome, there is much turmoil in store for America and, unfortunately, the rest of the World will not be immune to the consequences from it. This situation, predictably, will be evidence to one of the most tumultuous decades of the 21st Century; opening with the 9-11 experience and, potentially, closing with an outright revolutionary uprising. Only time will be truth to history.

NAYKD POET

An impressive call-to-arms(vote) however, the American public are being given the choice to either shoot themselves in the head versus jumping off the nearest bridge; unfortunately, WE, the rest of the WORLD’s population, will suffer the same consequence regardless of the choice they make! The Electoral College system of choosing the next President of the United States does not ensure that the popular choice of the People will be the President Elect. For this reason: NO ONE anywhere, after November 8, 2016, will be resolved in knowing the future will be one we can look forward to with a modicum of HOPE, unlike the 2008 electoral cycle.
