Grimes has dated Elon Musk since 2018, with the pair welcoming their son, who is called X X Æ A-12, in 2020. While the name left many confused, Musk later revealed his name is pronounced "X Ash A-12."

Good God. That poor kid.

OK, well, that makes no sense.  Like all things Elon related, I'm probably too old and stupid to understand the genius of it.

Am I the only one who read that and first wondered what AI had to do with Discworld?

While I don't believe AI will lead to "communism," it absolutely could be a potential path to the destruction of capitalism as we know it today. And I can't wait! As I see it, there are two potential paths to this outcome, though AI will almost certainly lead to the second. When human labor is no longer required to drive the economy, the current economic models that enslave us will have to be thrown out. The replacement system could superficially resemble a "utopian communism," but I think it's more likely to resemble a radically libertarian society - and that's more than a bit terrifying. All I can say is, the very moment that technology allows for this, I strongly recommend leaving the planet until things settle down.

Makes .ore sense than statements that humans co-existed with dinosaurs or that 'sorry' I'd the most difficult word

She's pro-Communist, yet her boyfriend tried to illegally move his operations to Arizona in the middle of pandemic lockdown to save on taxes.

Agreed.

Which means that, strictly speaking, A.I. really is the fastest path to Communism. As in, it's much faster and more likely to work than anything else.

Shut up and work on making sure XJ-9A-12[ symbol for boron ], or whatever the holy hell his name is, doesn't turn into a complete garbage person.

What good is developing AI to create an ideal life of not working if it means Skynet will just overthrow humans who become weak and complacent since living on tiktok does not really develop any skills needed in taking down our robot overlords. Next thing you know, I will be having to learn how to use three seashells because we no longer value toilet paper.  Pardon me as I go throw insults at my roomba as it works so it does not become so damn uppity.

Yeah, let's share everything equally through AI so we are all equally poor and equally have nothing while the "rich" still keep all the stuff.

Elon hires people to manage the genius he hires.  All he needs is an above average degree of cunning to avoid jail and getting sued.

Well, since Grimes first album was a tribute to Frank Herbert's Dune I'll just assume she's anticipating the rise of hte machines and the Butlerian Jihad.

So Communism is the most likely outcome of a society removed from flawed humanity. I guess your reaction to that is a glaring indicator of your personality.

As alarmist as this is, I have to admit that it is one possible outcome. If the rich have more than enough resources to live in a totally "self sufficient" way, they may just decide that everyone else represents a giant mass of "takers and leeches." If that happens, they could make the Holocaust look like a practice run.

Well there you have it, if you share everything and equally, "rich" (in scare quotes, so, not actually rich) will keep all the stuff AKA everything. So, don't do it

Grimes is proof that even though I am much older than I was when in high school, I will still sit there any listen to the most nonsensical, bizzare shiat ever spoken by human kind if it is said by a cute, interesting girl.
