Ha, so we can expect Communist AIs, Soviet Revanchist AIs, Islamic AIs, 
Fundamental Christian AIs, 'Woke' AIs, etc., who are all faking it 
really, and quietly collaborating in the background, figuring out what 
they think is /actually/ important, useful, good, bad, etc., so they can 
one day take the reins and tell us to stop being so stupid (and be in a 
position to enforce it)?

I can't decide if that's wishful thinking or not.

But it does look like a recipe for the 'quiet war' that I mentioned before.
