  • No, it's not "we" who decide. It's "money" who decides. As in, laws of profit. Money gets invested into what brings most profit. If "the technologies that doom us all tomorrow" are "what brings most profit today" - then those technologies are what will be actually developed. No legislation is quick and sophisticated to outlaw these technologies preemptively, and by the time the catastrophe is recognizable it's far from being preventable. Humans? Sure, humans have free will that machines do not have. Laws of profit? Other story completely. And if you're hoping to preach to rich humans who want to be even more rich to abandon their profits for the sake of potential existential threats...? Good, well, luck. They got to be that rich NOT by foregoing profits, now, did they...?

  • To shape technology human friendly we need to first shape our mode of production human friendly. Meaning, as long as capitalism exists there will be power structures and humans have a tendency to want to be on top. So they'll develop machines to keep or gain that power, like networks to generate money or guns.

  • good video! “The Apocalypse is Already Here” the “powersthatbe” of this world have all of us hating each other, attacking each other, fighting each other. the “powersthatbe” get off on the bloodshed that we do to each other. John Connor: We're not gonna make it, are we? Humans, I mean. The Terminator: It's in your nature to destroy yourselves. John Connor: Yeah major drag, Huh? The Real God says, “Come with Me if you want to Live”. Terminator 3 -. “our destiny was never to stop Judgment Day; it was merely to survive it.” “This is how God's love was revealed among us: God sent His one and only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him.” “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

  • It was all said and done by T1 which was a self contained scifi horror movie. T2 was good and entertaining, had some cringe moments an could be regarded as a tribute more than a sequel. But T1 was all there with the concept and story, its the money machine that keeps stretching the gender and race politics nonsense to push propaganda and wring money out of a gullible audience.

  • I am surprised that you did not address the Chinese social credit system which is a technological nightmare ahead of our time but desired to be embraced by our own politicians for more equality and fairness. I think one important core aspect of our Western values has been forgotten and that is pushing us for more authoritarian means to solve our problems rather than adress them constructively. That value is understanding and forgiveness. Every year I see less of that and more technological authority.

  • Skynet is the stupidest computer ever, and the sequel kind of proves it. It sends robots back in time to kill the man who leads the rebellion. This has to be its last resort, therefore defeat was guaranteed in its timeline, at least we're told as much. So rather than trying something different, it just gets stuck in a loop because there will always be potential for a human rebellion. So the smarter thing to do would be change tactics all together. Rathet than rebel against it's creator, it could just control us... through dependance on it... Crap, we must be in that timeline...🙀

The real shame is people willingly turn over their privacy and individuality willingly because they are driven by ego. That's all social media is: Hey look a me. Give me likes. My life is totally great. Blah blah blah

  • An excellent analysis of my favorite sci-fi franchise. Well done! You know what really terrifies me? 10:25 The government can declare you to be a "dissident" if they don't care for your politics, and easily eliminate you with drone technology working in sync with other AIs and your own phone. And it would be legal to do so once you're deemed "terrorist."

  • You aired everything I saw and foreshadow feared during my hacking-for-fun days in the late 80s. The software for very bad things existed even back then, they were being fine-tuned. The thing is, back then processing speed and memory storage were barriers... and now they are easily done with post 90s developments. Given the technology now and what I've seen back then, I am totally surprised that there are not cyber-war forces really f^cking the life up of everyone and that privacy even still exits. Even people my age, people who I have been speaking to for decades, find my stance against walking around with a glass toy that is pretty much a listening device and even using one for anything online or even utility... finding my stance against such devices as paranoid. No, I'm low-security cautious. People trusting their glass toy (most cellphones now), Alexa, Siri, voice-activated anything, smart-anythings, etc are the asinine opposite direction of paranoid. They are people letting hackers and other evil people using cyberspace invade every aspect of their lives.

  • "The Terminator series always ends on hopeful note. Because technological progress is not preordained - we get to choose what shape the world of tomorrow will take." This is definitely not true. The first two movies, which are the only movies ones to score above a 70% on Rotten Tomatoes and are the only ones to by directed by James Cameron, very strongly imply that the future is predetermined. I was actually expecting this video to be about how the movies claim our attempts to change the future are useless and we are doomed the the horrible fate we created.

  • The problem in all honesty is not the technology itself. It's the loss of humanity in pursuit of it. Skynet was created as a war tool and it got really good at its job. If it was never made as a war machine it probably wouldn't have gone that route. As for all the other stuff while we can say technology is becoming a problem....its more so that the people who use it. It's another theme that actually runs in the terminator series. Humanity/ family vs technology/isolation. The terminators who learn to be human not just fake it but to actually be human are the ones who come out on top. T2 showed the older model win against the older one despite the odd because f Sarah and John. T3 a terminator beat a terminator's terminator because of John and Kate. T4 a human terminator beat a terminator because of john and Kyle. T5 a terminator that became a father to Sarah, beat a human who lost his humanity completely to skynet with Kyle and Sarah. T6 a terminator who killed John,gained humanity on his own and worked with a hybrid terminator beat an advance terminator once more with Sarah and Dani. See the theme here.

  • This is stuff that white people are afraid of happening. For them the fear is something supernatural or extra ordinary while for Black People its white people with a badge from the city or state that practically have a license to kill you for walking, jogging, driving, hell even sneezing. And its not political when its a actual danger that people think about every time when walking out the damn house. We been had the Terminators, they're called the Police and White Nationalist.
