Submit from July 11, 2023, filed beneath Philosophy (feed).

I’m German, and Germans are avid, aggressive complainers. We will inform you precisely why yesterday’s win of your favourite membership was undeserved, why in the present day’s lovely climate sucks, and why the German and every other authorities’s successes are irrelevant given what they constantly hold f’ing up. A complaint-free world? Please.

Nevertheless it’s most likely not nationwide negativity that will clarify why there’s a lot to complain, about all the pieces.

It’s additionally not even clear whether or not one can really complain about all the pieces. Are there issues with all the pieces? Even with the nice issues?

That is what I investigated, placing AI to the take a look at and documenting the findings in just a little e-book: The Problems With All the Good Things. It seems, there’s each much less and extra happening in the case of complaining, and discovering issues in all places. Get pleasure from.


Listed below are two observations that you simply’ve possible made in your life:

One, you’ve observed how simple it’s to search out fault. If you happen to haven’t discovered fault your self, then you recognize others who discover this incorrect and that incorrect and that different factor incorrect as effectively.

Two, you’ve realized about issues usually deemed fascinating and good, issues not linked with fault, whether or not these are states of being or possessions or actions.

Now, if you happen to put the primary remark to the take a look at (on the lookout for fault), would the second nonetheless maintain (that there are issues with out fault)?

Would there be nothing to complain about; would there be nothing incorrect with all these issues fascinating and good?

This query is what this little e-book is exploring, by interviewing OpenAI’s ChatGPT concerning the issues, with many good issues.
