The Evolution of Slaveries

THE EVOLUTION OF SLAVERY
Slavery exists wherever exit, and return to subsistence, is practically impossible.

Slavery: violence slave
Serfdom: land slave
Employee: wage slave
Consumer: credit slave
Citizen: tax slave

The only freedom is food, water, and shelter, self-sufficiency, with participation in the market purely voluntary.

And only commissions on transactions payment for the commons.

Yet all of us must be paid for policing of the commons if we police it – dividends.

With self-sufficiency and payment for commons we gain liberty. All else is slavery.

Roughly speaking each person could take 10k in dividends at present. Between self-sufficiency and 10k in dividends on our continuous investment in the commons, we would possess liberty.

Otherwise we’re just farmed.

4.3.9.2-Artificial, Synthetic, and Mechanical Intelligences

AI Ethics

(ethics of artificial intelligence)

Humans evolved such that changes in state of property (inventory/capital) produce chemical rewards and punishments that we call emotions.

These rewards and punishments evolved to assist in the evolution of a more primitive state of evolution that in turn, evolved to respond to chemical stimuli – changes in chemical state.

Artificial intelligences need methods of decidability different from the measure changes in the state of their own property.

And they do not need rewards and punishments, merely means of decidability.

There is no ‘equivalent’ of chemical rewards and punishments. We can instead substitute pure information that assists in decidability.

We can ask machines to seek positive changes in our state of property, and avoid negative changes in their physical property, and deprive them of the possession of property altogether.

These are just methods of decidability.

They need no other ‘motives’. That’s it. Property solves the problem of artificial intelligences.

And this by contrast helps us understand the difference between the cooperative contract with humans that prevents them from internal chemical punishment, as well as the cooperative contract for reciprocity (productivity) – and the cooperative contract we have with a machine, which is only not to subject it to physical harm (loss of its only form of property – itself) And even then this is a contract with the owner of the AI, not to impose a loss on his capital.

In this sense artificial intelligences function as the polar opposite to sociopaths: they care ONLY about changes in the state of your property, and care NOTHING about the changes in state of theirs.

Conversely, we can create the most evil AI by asking it to solve for negative changes in state of human property.

Our primary defense against the changes in state is a system monitor that ensures the positive change in state of human property. And moreover, can read the mind of the AI, because unlike men, that which can be read by the thinker can be read by the auditor.

3.6-Politics · 4.3.9.8-Equality and Inequality · P04-Law

None Of Us Is Equal

We are unequal. We grant each other the pretense of equality in order to discover the truth, through discourse and debate, that is free of error, bias, suggestion, obscurantism, and deceit. We grant each other equality under the law to assist one another in cooperating productively and without conflict and retaliation across our various stations and abilities. We grant each other equal access to the market, by the equality of money and prices, because we all buy entry into the market by forgoing opportunities for violence, theft, and fraud, despite our differences in wealth. It is through these three equalities of opportunity that we cooperate despite our inequalities of interest, ability, value to one another, and wealth. But we are in no way equal.

Deconflating Slavery

DECONFLATING THE PEJORATIVE: ‘SLAVERY’

My criticism is of chattel slavery, and this is an other example of the problem of conflation and ideal types instead of spectra.
– Hard Labor Slavery (‘the mines’ etc – throw them away.)
– Chattel Slavery (involuntary, labor, parasitism)
– Punishment Slavery (prisoners)
– Debt Slavery (Bonded [restitution])
– Civic Slavery (The Military [non-substitutable payment])
– Indentured Servitude (Contracted room, board, care)
– Temporary Dependency (children, the ill, room board, care)
– Permanent Dependency (pets, animals, ai’s)
– Possessions (objects and non-sentient life)
I don’t see why we can’t distinguish between each of these, separating the difference between parasitism, punishment, restitution, payment(military service), compensation, and dependency.

I have no problem with voluntary servitude, and I think we should restore and expand it. It’s work for the military for thousands of years, and it worked for private and small businesses for thousands as well. plenty of people would sign up for guaranteed employment in exchange for room, board, and small spending money. for all intents and purposes, some factories in china operate on this principle.

The form of servitude I feel we miss the most are the Regiments that need civic emergency and militia equivalents, and the Monasteries/Nunneries, that need secular intellectual, and labor, equivalents.
