Re: Studying the obvious
Quite so, ThatOne, the public sector with its parasitic governmental administrations freely gorging itself and sticking the electorate with the bills for its fantastical projects which are practically wholly dependent upon the private sector delivering the goods for a price that parasites do not control, is always going to trail and flounder in the wake of the pioneering rogue entrepreneur and private pirate operand tapping into the need and greed of the money marketeers, and that is especially so in the novel case of virile and even virulent AI, given what AI can so easily now do without any viable competition or effective opposition to hinder its unfettered progress in the direction of goals chosen by its enabling future drivers.
And yes, there is also that other lucrative and extremely rewarding sector to consider where money appears to grown trees and is always made available by the pallet load to those select principals able to provide the right weapon to defeat and overwhelm any enemy or non-friend ..... the Private Military Contractor and/or Almighty Arms Dealer ....... and that is a sector which has an extremely generous and ACTive customer client base virtually everywhere one can think of.
Indeed, for some more than just lucky, can both of those base root avenues be extensively explored and energetically engagingly exploited to deliver the goods which delight product suppliers to excel at project and goal provision.
That's the attraction one is certainly battling against in the AI arena and that which tempts the best of brains away from a life that is more mundane and prosaic and clearly not so well rewarded with loads of fiat.
