Hi Jonathan, I really like this framework that you've laid out. I feel like it leaves space for nuanced conversation about how to "deal" with AI. Correct me if I wrong, but it sounds like you're saying that a grounded and actionable approach to AI would extend only as far as the motive, means, and opportunities of our systems that already exist. And then assess how AI impacts those systems. Is that correct?

If so, I feel like this places the controls of AI back in the hands of people, rather than some imagined entity. Which is nice haha :)

Thanks for your clear writing btw! Please keep it up :)
