Many tell us what to think. I ask my readers to be skeptical. Question me and others.

Human intelligence is the only one that matters

With every major invention, there were fears that it would destroy fragile human society. For some, trains, movies, planes, atomic energy, and even simple bicycles were evil forces. The woman on the bike could easily avoid the prying eyes of the village. Demoralization seemed almost certain. Today it is AI, artificial intelligence. Thanks to AI, computers can do tasks that previously only humans could do. Some will abuse it just as women did when they were given a bike. It depends on human intelligence and wisdom. As long as we have it, there is no need to worry. The eagerness of politicians to protect us from AI is worrying. They better use AI to uncover what they screwed up now that fewer Americans value higher education. To prosper today, we must be smarter. The government cannot order it to happen.
