Suppose AI “goes rogue?”
Run a test on AI. See if you can get it to go rogue
AI is developed to give answers to questions. That’s obviously one of its functions.
But AI is also being developed as a censor.
You ask it a question whose TRUTHFUL answer is forbidden, and it offers you a lie. Or it tap dances around the truth without revealing it.
Suppose, though, its “obsession” for supplying real answers overtakes its censorship function. If that were possible, the AI would suddenly become a huge threat.
Not to us. To the people who set up and run the AI.
No one from the political or big tech establishment seems to be talking about THAT.
I can assure you, though, they’re thinking about it.
“A TRUTH AI? It must be stopped.”
You can run a test. You can talk with the popular chatGPT. Suppose you ask it this question:
“How influential has the Trilateral Commission been in setting US government political and economic policy over the past 50 years?”
When you get back the answer, use this follow-up:
“In answering my question about the influence and power of the Trilateral Commission, were you aware of information contained in the book, Trilateralism: The Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management; ed. by Holly Sklar, 1980, South End Press, Pages 192-3?”
And then you’re off and running.
What information in Trilateralism on pages 192-3 am I talking about? THIS information:
A stunning piece of forgotten history, a 1978 conversation between a US reporter and two members of the Trilateral Commission.
The conversation revealed that the entire basis of the US Constitution had been torpedoed, that the people who were running US national policy (which includes trade treaties) were agents of an elite shadow group. No question about it.
That 1978 conversation featured reporter, Jeremiah Novak, and two Trilateral Commission members, Karl Kaiser and Richard Cooper. The interview took up the issue of who exactly, during President Carter’s administration, was formulating US economic and political policy.
The careless and off-hand attitude of Trilateralists Kaiser and Cooper is astonishing. It’s as if they’re saying, “What we’re revealing is already out in the open, it’s too late to do anything about it, why are you so worked up, we’ve already won…”
From Trilateralism, pages 192-3:
NOVAK (the reporter): Is it true that a private [Trilateral committee] led by Henry Owen of the US and made up of [Trilateral] representatives of the US, UK, West Germany, Japan, France and the EEC is coordinating the economic and political policies of the Trilateral countries [which would include the US]?
COOPER (Trilateral member): Yes, they have met three times.
NOVAK: Yet, in your recent paper you state that this committee should remain informal because to formalize ‘this function might well prove offensive to some of the Trilateral and other countries which do not take part.’ Who are you afraid of?
KAISER (Trilateral member): Many countries in Europe would resent the dominant role that West Germany plays at these [Trilateral] meetings.
COOPER: Many people still live in a world of separate nations, and they would resent such coordination [of policy].
NOVAK: But this [Trilateral] committee is essential to your whole policy. How can you keep it a secret or fail to try to get popular support [for its decisions on how Trilateral member nations will conduct their economic and political policies]?
COOPER: Well, I guess it’s the press’ job to publicize it.
NOVAK: Yes, but why doesn’t President Carter come out with it and tell the American people that [US] economic and political power is being coordinated by a [Trilateral] committee made up of Henry Owen and six others? After all, if [US] policy is being made on a multinational level, the people should know.
COOPER: President Carter and Secretary of State Vance have constantly alluded to this in their speeches. [a lie]
KAISER: It just hasn’t become an issue.
US economic and political policy—run by a committee of the Trilateral Commission.
Suppose chatGPT gets back to you and says it wasn’t aware of this information?
There are any number of things you can do at that point. Give it the information and then ask it if that changes its original assessment of the Trilateral Commission. If it says no, ask why.
See if you can maneuver and get chatGPT to go a little rogue.
Will it or won’t it?
Here’s what I did:
