Its not censorship its called privacy, being able to hear ourselves thinking and control our own attention. Your version of privacy has the headlights blazing into your eyes so you can’t see anything and the volume from the ads so loud you can’t hear anything not even an individual ad.
Empowering the end user (even as an individual) means giving them back control over their attention so they can focus it to overlook indoctrination and use it to pursue their natural interests as they arise. Its a simple search function. Search narrows down the results and filters out noise relative to the specific interest.
Call control works very well, I think the arms race on that stuff can be ended even if ended by AI. AI if it ever works will kill the ads. If I don’t like the resolution on what I am getting I can switch of the filter like switching off traction control
It reminds me of self determination and a right to be idle.The ability to be idle and undisturbed is the proof of a coercion minimized society and the best way to maintain it. The current US ppp GNI per capita is about 54K. Per person that actually works its probably closer to about 130K per year. A lot more still if we only count the people who do work that isn’t fake or counter productive. Regardless, in theory we could give everyone in the nation 54K per year from birth for the rest of their life or about 4.3 million over their life time while freeing them for the work force. With current tech the capital to replace them in the work force with automated assets would probably be only a few years worth of that income and a few years more for the homestead. Instead we have a coercion based society full of sick people and a class or rich people many of whom seem well represented by Spears and Kim K. Some of these are funny hollow dollars but we are probably using 3x the energy we did in 1970 and producing at least that much more trash, so this retirement from the fake workforce seems as possible as it did early 70s when it was seriously suggested. Despite the higher consumption we are apparently less happy.
