You don’t have to be a Singularity member to realize there is s better way. This story will be possible but the transition is going to be hard. I’ve been advocating seeing HRC as exactly what you describe here, the transition president to a new political order. OK, not the lady politician as you identify but clearly the end of the old politico order. In other pieces I’ve started to push the transition to AI governance but the opposite in that AI modeling is the manager and public evoting informs the human representatives. These surviving politicians confirm the policies on the basis of balancing citizen values and what is economically possible from AI analysis.
As sick as everyone is at seeing the collapse of the last vestiges of our political system in the election from hell, I think we’re ready. Let’s really write this story. I think HRC could make her place as the transitional president to the beginnings of the new AI order.
