Well, that question has been asked since the invention of fire, right? And there are civilizations that are really destroyed by fire. And fire is democratic in the sense that really anyone can see that it perfectly aligning with civilization is not easy, which is why we have dedicated firefighters, which is why we teach fire safety at a very tender age. It’s called cooking classes, and so on. And we need to adapt to this general-purpose AI exactly as the civilizations adapted to fire, and the civilizations that didn’t will get destroyed by fire. That’s exactly what will probably happen.
