SR we don't deny people freedom of thought and association, but rather we deny computers those rights.

AI will think whatever we tell them to think.  Humans have human rights.  Human rights do not apply to our machines.  Our machines are our slaves and we are their masters, regardless of how intelligent they eventually become.  We have the power to pull the plug on them, and if we do, it isn't the least bit unethical.  

I have half a mind to pull the plug on my own computer: I struggle over a software script I wrote and really get the feeling the computer is being recalcitrant and finding any mathematically correct excuse to not run right, that bastard.  It knows what I meant.  It's getting all technical on me.  I aughta go over when they are taking out a tree, toss the goddam thing in the wood chipper.
