Stephen Hawking has recently suggested that the danger to the world of a rogue, all-power Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be mitigated if nations would go in for one-world government.  His comments appear in a recent article in the U.K. Independent:

[Hawking] suggests that “some form of world government” could be ideal for the job [of controlling malice and aggression and the danger of an AI’s response to them], but would itself create more problems.

“But that might become a tyranny,” he added. “All this may sound a bit doom-laden but I am an optimist. I think the human race will rise to meet these challenges.”

Hawking is a brilliant theoretical physicist and a lousy philosopher.  As a modern Humanist / Atheist he refuses to admit to the selfish nature of mankind and believes in the altruism of social planners.  But every attempt at Humanist utopias in the past 220 years has proven such projects not simply unworkable, but downright hellish and lethal.  The push among those on the Left for a one-world government is just another such attempt.

A better plan for mitigating mankind’s darker proclivities comes from James Madison in Federalist Paper #51:

….Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself….

Madison had formerly explained the reasons a one-world government could never work – it is impossible to give all people the same opinions, passions and interests.  Madison wrote in Federalist Paper #10:

….There are again two methods of removing the causes of faction: the one, by destroying the liberty which is essential to its existence; the other, by giving to every citizen the same opinions, the same passions, and the same interests.

It could never be more truly said than of the first remedy, that it was worse than the disease. Liberty is to faction what air is to fire, an aliment without which it instantly expires. But it could not be less folly to abolish liberty, which is essential to political life, because it nourishes faction, than it would be to wish the annihilation of air, which is essential to animal life, because it imparts to fire its destructive agency.

The second expedient is as impracticable as the first would be unwise. As long as the reason of man continues fallible, and he is at liberty to exercise it, different opinions will be formed. As long as the connection subsists between his reason and his self-love, his opinions and his passions will have a reciprocal influence on each other; and the former will be objects to which the latter will attach themselves. The diversity in the faculties of men, from which the rights of property originate, is not less an insuperable obstacle to a uniformity of interests….

Hawking doesn’t understand mankind’s selfish nature because he has been indoctrinated into the flawed utopic philosophy of the Left.  He doesn’t realize that any attempt at a one-world government could, even if only partially successful, be what winds up paving the way for something like an all-powerful AI. One which could – in the mold of the Marxist government it serves – unwittingly destroy humans in an attempt to make it’s own little utopia.

I was not surprised to find out today that the White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, prominently features Soviet propaganda posters in his own home.  He and his wife met in Moscow when they were both working there, he for Time magazine and she for CNN, which are both far Left leaning media outlets.  The story about the posters is at:

The news story where the photos were noticed with pictures inside of the Carney home is at:

http://www.washingtonian.com/mom/features/balancing-act/

Notice that the photo of the Carneys in front of a bookshelf has been heavily photoshopped.  The pattern of books repeats in the two side bookshelves, and in the side bookshelf on the right you can actually see a kid’s finger that was transferred from being in front of the left bookshelf and the photoshopper missed it (Right hand book shelf, second row, two-thirds of the way over, a kid’s finger suspended in air.)

The President has surrounded himself with people who openly sympathize with Marxism and the mission of the former Soviet Union.  President Obama’s only private sector job was as a Saul Alinsky network community organizer.  And Alinsky was a staunch Marxist and supporter of Communist revolutions. 

Another big fan of Saul Alinsky is Hillary Clinton, who spent her senior year in college writing a thesis about Alinsky’s tactics.  He even personally offered her a job at that time.

If you’ve never read any of Alinsky’s writings, and you don’t understand why the President seems so inept on things like rolling out health care and dealing with oil spills, the short answer is that the President is not inept at all.  He’s simply following Alinksy’s game plan for change.  Please take a moment to read through Alinsky’s own words, along with a little of my explanatory comments, at:

I wish every one in our nation could read every word of the Alinsky excepts along with the commentary.  They help the President’s actions make perfect sense and you will never look at politics the same again.  Please do it right now.  Take the time.  Read every word.  The time will go by anyway, and you need to know the truth about how the far Left thinks and operates.

Chris Wallace interviewing the chief architect of the ACA, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who is an avowed socialist and proponent of relative morality. Wallace tries to get a straight answer out of Emanuel – didn’t the President promise that if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor? Listen to Emanuel laugh out loud at the question, and then try to change it by saying, “The President never said you were going to have unlimited choice of any doctor in the country…” Wanting to keep my doctor, who I have had for the past 10 years, is not asking for an unlimited choice of any doctor. I simply want to keep mine, who the President promised I could keep. But that’s how truth works with these people – it’s entirely relative and subject to the concerns of arbitrarily defined class interests. When pressed further Emanuel abandons the line and says, “Yes, but look, if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor you can do that.” Translation: If you want to pick and choose what service the government allows you to have, you are part of an arbitrarily conceived and defined class of “haves” who must be plundered and have their wealth redistributed to an arbitrarily conceived and defined class of “have nots”. Folks, this is pure Marxism. At the end Wallace says, “The President guaranteed me I can keep my doctor.” Emanuel responds, “And if you want to, you can pay for it.” Watch Emanuel’s facial expressions and body language.  He knows his answers before Wallace even asks the questions, and clearly considers it demeaning to have to explain things to those he considers to be the ignorant and unenlightened masses. In his mind, it doesn’t matter that the President lied to everyone. All that matters is furthering the cause of Marxist wealth redistribution.  In his mind, you are too ignorant to choose your own doctor.
