Adult Children

Collectively, adults behave like children, without the sense to restrain from doing things that will kill them, e.g. build nuclear weapons, build bioterror, pump CO₂ into the atmosphere, poison the rivers, strip the farmlands of soil, wage war against those who are no threat to us, kill off the fish… Even though most people dread success, we are working hard on building artificial intelligences cleverer than ourselves. Perhaps AI (Artificial Intelligence) will take on the rôle of our global parents.
