Well, for example, in the human design there is (appears to be) one
module that pushes the system to become dominant among the the other
individuals of the species. It needs to be acknowledged as superior in
And there is another module that can cause the creature to enjoy
perperating acts of destruction or violence.
It seems clear that these modules are not necessary to the proper
functioning of the system (evidence: some people have extremely weak
versions of these modules). It is also transparently obvious that these
would be dangerous in an AGI. So, they go.
As for your "how?" question: they are simply left out of the AGI
design. Nothing more to it than that.
