In Critical Legal Thinking an article by Giorgio Agamben on the future of mankind was published, On the Government of the Faceless and the Deathless. Amongst other things he writes:
The planetary project that governments try to impose is, therefore, radically unpolitical. It proposes instead to eliminate every genuinely political element from human existence, to replace it with a governmentality based only on algorithmic control
He ends with saying that a faceless society, a society without a past and without physical contact, is a society of ghosts and as such doomed to a more or less rapid ruin. I agree with that. Artificial intelligence will make the world uninhabitable for humans.
