The Problem With “Do Something”

The problem of alienated, often fatherless young men espousing either hateful extremism or nihilistic meaninglessness who aim their anger and violence at the defenseless … that’s not government caused, and it can’t be government fixed.

Those tasks belong to the very institutions that have been dismissed and even dismantled across our society: The family and the Church.

Rush Limbaugh Quote

Pursuant to recent instances of mass shootings, people have naturally exhibited sadness and sympathy. Many have also, as historically expected, engaged in anti Second Amendment rhetoric. However, as Rush Limbaugh noted:

There isn’t a thing they can do regarding gun legislation that would stop these shootings, because it’s not gun legislation that is responsible for it. The one thing none of this ever takes into account — you can ban guns left and right. You can take guns away from the law-abiding all day. People who intend, who have made up their minds to use guns in a criminal way are going to find them. They are, by definition, criminals.

Violent crime happens everyday, especially in cities such as Chicago – the Murder Capital of America. Fatherless homes without an authority figure, alcohol and drug abuse, the societal devaluation of human life propagated through legalized abortion, violence in the theater and video games at home…etc.

Everybody just wants to think we’re doing something about it, “even if it doesn’t matter, we want to do something.” Because of the psychological need to do something.

The problem isn’t guns, knives, or other implements from which to do harm; it is a fundamental disrespect for the intrinsic value of human life, and a failure to effectively elevate morality in the hearts and minds of American youth.

Artificial Intelligence

Problem Robot

The future relationship between man and machine cannot be known with certainty. In 1965,  I. J. Good predicted an intelligence explosion, the idea that a sufficiently smart artificial intelligence (AI) would be able to rewrite its programming, improve itself and so increase its own intelligence even further. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has gone as far as to suggest that “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race”. Regarding the speed of progress in AI, Elon Musk has recently noted that “it is growing at a pace close to exponential”. There are others, however, who generally assume with less concern that AI can be controlled as a useful capacity to safely service humanity. Therein, I remain skeptical. While change is coming, I have made available in the present this Problem Robot design – stop by my galleries at Redbubble and Zazzle to discover a plethora of interesting gifts and apparel!
