2142. Virus, AI, Big Data, and marginalizing the people

One aspect concerning  me is the tendency for many, especially in the professional class,  to want a solution to pandemics and inequality that is some form of welfare that has the consequence, somewhat intended, of reducing  the bulk of the population to welfare recipients rather than creating the conditions for people to  have the capacity for action to make their own lives, as individuals and communities.

The Big Data AI fantasy is for the elite, as Silicon Valley’s major customer,  to own all the agency in society and to subsidize the  rest of us marginally maintained only by a residue of fading  humanitarian  concern.
