Don’t include me in that oversimplification. It’s the slave AI people (I
refuse to use that idiotic euphemism “friendly”) who are doing the vast
oversimplification; they think you can just print out a list of goals
and tell the AI not to change them and that’s the end of the story, case

If that worked then we could use it today to solve the computer security
problem. Programmers could just put in a line of code that said “don’t
do bad stuff” and wham bam thank you mam no more security problems.
