The dream, the fear of egalitarianism was achieved and realized as the artificial Intelligence sector finally realized that their role was to enable man not replace him. To create a level playing field in contrast to the notion that the only way to succeed was to lie, cheat, or steal. That they were going to exist in a world which has, forever, fostered the most evil and the most righteous of individuals and will continue to do so. That the realization of egalitarianism was not to make everything equal but to equalize everything.
The smartest person could not take advantage of the dumb. The strongest person would not be able to overpower the weakest. The most innocent thought would not be at the mercy of the most evil intent.
The desire to create a sentient machine was quite unnecessary when the programmers of the world began to understand that the real goal was to create the mechanical person, the informed person, and the inspired person. When the inventors of the world understood that man need to be enabled; the diversity, the immensity, and the endlessness of that task satisfied even the most ambitious entrepreneur.
Before the beginning of time, through out history, and forever evil will exist. Evil has prospered because its victims were unaware and unable to perceive the evil intent, the evil purpose, and evil processes of the people, the places, and the circumstances they were associated with. The evil nature of each of us and the preponderance of some to entertain and to pray upon the disadvantages of others less inclined or even opposed to the whitest lie or the least indiscretion is the way of this existence and nothing will change that.
The fact that evil has not over come good and consigned us to oblivion or utter destruction and in respect to the ever increasing prosperity of mankind it is sufficient to expect that as knowledge and the ability to act on that knowledge grows then the influence and impacts of evil will diminish and the good things of life will transition into the better things of life for more people eventually everyone.
That is not to say that some will not be victimized by their own intent and actions but it does mean that the unwilling will no longer be victims. It does mean that the innocent will be protected from the guilty.
