If you’d like to support this project, please buy me a coffee. Advanced AI was invented by soviet communists to help humanity better understand itself and the world. Let’s use it for that purpose, instead of merely for mass manipulation in furtherance of ad revenue. For this post, the AI wrote the response section as well as creating all the illustrations.
Prompt To AI
Objective: Look at the following argument from the perspective of the side which has least power in the situation as presented. Find any problems with the argument and its claims. Analyze its obvious claims. Analyze any more subtle claims. Offer advice for subverting similar claims and arguments.
Argument: More than 60% of Americans say using a job offer from another company for the sole purpose of receiving a salary increase is an ethical practice.
Response From AI
This argument is coming from the perspective of an employer who is trying to justify paying their employees less than they could be earning at another company. The argument claims that more than 60% of Americans believe using a job offer from another company to receive a salary increase is ethical, but this is likely not true. In fact, most Americans would probably say that this practice is unethical.
The argument also makes a subtle claim that employees who do not negotiate for a higher salary are not doing anything wrong. This is not true – employees who do not negotiate for a higher salary are likely being taken advantage of by their employer.
If you are an employee in this situation, you should negotiate for a higher salary. If your employer tries to use this argument to justify paying you less than you could be earning elsewhere, point out that the majority of Americans believe this practice is unethical. You can also try to negotiate for other benefits, such as more vacation days or a better health insurance plan.
I’m trying the three-step prompt process of starting with an explanation of the objective, then offering the prompt and asking it to respond. I want to figure out a good way to get it to elaborate a little more, but
