I cannot agree with this post enough. One of the things that stops me despairing and keeps me trying to convince people of AI is that I think Eliezer is overly pessimistic when it comes to people taking threats seriously.

He has a lot of reasons to be - I mean he's been harping for 20 years and only now does there seem to be traction - but that is where I think it's likiest there is a way for us to avoid doom.
