Please understand that I don't think this will happen. I was arguing a
thought problem only, something physicists are, perhaps, too prone to
do. My argument is simply that if a situation developed that DID have
the extinction of humanity as a likely result, and if that result
could ONLY be achieved by embracing a dictatordhip, then embracing a
dictatorship is the better of two very bad options.
