​Would you write a code for an AI that told it to compare humans and AIs?
Do you really want to confuse it?  Put an AI in charge of censorship and
there goes civilization as we know it.

Of course I do not know the extent to which an AI can do or be programmed
to do, independent thinking, so maybe you will inform me.
