These threats made by people against people describe the possible risks of AI as a group of tools and as a well-funded project.

AI is being wielded as a weapon and has become a part of a deeply political instinct, with people seeing it as a force for restoring a natural order and keeping people in line.

These AI threats do not have much to say about what AI is or is capable of doing, because they are about assimilating the concept of imminent AI into an existing worldview.

 Such threats take on different meanings in different contexts, and they see AI as a force for proving them right and keeping certain sorts of work devalued.

The WGA strike will do more than a million tossed-off tweets to set the terms of engagement with actual AI tools and the people who wish to deploy them.
