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.

The belief that working more makes you morally superior is one of the chief tenets of christianity. It’s called the prosperity doctrine. Modern christians argue that the external material conditions of people’s lives are a result of their internal moral character. The argument is that whatever life you have is either a blessing or punishment from god based on your virtue as a person. This is where the idea of a “protestant work ethic” comes from. As a child in sunday school, they used to tell us that every time we follow a rule or do what we are told, we should imagine little angels installing a larger swimming pool or another tv in the mansion that’s waiting for us in heaven.
This is of course a result of the work of king james, who changed so much in his translation of the bible; particularly the line “in my father’s house are many mansions” which actually said “rooms” in greek. This was the first version of the bible that normal people were allowed to own and read (before that, owning or reading the bible as someone who was not a priest would get you burned at the stake). Because king james like modern capitalists today was interested in increasing worker productivity, he changed “rooms” to “mansions,” effectively touching off what would eventually become the prosperity doctrine and lead people to associating working harder for capitalists with being morally superior.
This is why christian pastors often live in lavish mansions and own private jets, because they believe and teach that hoarding capitalist wealth is the same thing as moral virtue, and that the moral virtue of workers comes from the value they create for capitalists; whether that’s tithes to pay for the pastors next private jet, or wage slavery to pay for jeff bezos’ next space ship.

Its all a load of bs.
LMAO this is all it would write. And this is the new version of GPT-3 that’s supposed to be less likely to use bad words or offer hot takes. So perhaps this is some of the strongest evidence yet that GPT-3 has achieved sentience on some level.
