Capitalism will adapt, it always does. Either the technology will get banned or some bright young things will figure out a way around it.

On a more serious note, does anyone elss find themselves disgusted by the implied hedonism and disregard for morality among the Buddhists, Anogstics and especially the Atheists?  Atheists have the highest rate of cohabitation in the US.  I will throw that statistic in their face the next time one dares to flame me about Christian moral values.
Not disgusted, no.  Saddened, yes.  Either way, I'm not throwing anything in anyone's face.   :)

Careful, I literally have right now a slice of apple pie and an itchy trigger finger.  :P Granted,  when I last had pie, I had both a banana cream pie and a cholocate cream pie, I could have delivered more confectionary firepower.  ;)

Needless to say, the epic pie battle royale in the 1960s comedy film The Great Race, which was otherwise rather too long, is high on my list of preferred slapstick comedy.

Lord have mercy.

Do you have the means to move? I wouldn't recommend trying the US right now (though as a Yuppie, you might have a better shot than most). Europe might not be too hard.

The beast we're already in called international capitalism is little better (especially once the fossil fuels run out). Damned if we do, damned if we don't.
The AI is already solving that. With the technology behind bitcoin called blockchain

Greetings ~ It seems a matter of cousins ~ not in total agreement ~ myself I see all Orthodox as my brothers and sisters ```

We Armenian ~ could not attend the council because we were busy ~ fighting a war with the Persians ~ so The Armenian Church does not recognize that council ```

People inside each and every part of Orthodoxy think and feel ~ well ~ not exactly alike ~ but ```

You are my sister ~ and another my brother ~ that hasn't changed ~ one day~ God Wills ~ we will more openly confess this ```

Humans worshiping technological achievement isn't really anything new. It's kind of at the heart of all idolatry.

But banning research just because it might cause problems down the road just doesn't make any sense to me- especially when we're already slowly destroying ourselves anyway. It's all just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic at this point.

    I believe we are about 20 years away from singularity. Maybe less. Than another 3 to 4 years for everybody to be sucked in. I basically think AI will become a prediction machine and that is the most fearful part of it. Along with trusting it. People will have to incorporate themselves into it to survive.  Financially as well.
That sounds topical of the beast in revelation.
