If someone thinks that violence against AI labs is bad, then they will make it a taboo because they think it is bad, and they don’t want violent ideas to spread. There are a lot of interesting discussions to be had on why one believes this category of violence to be bad, and you can argue against these perspectives in a fairly neutral-sounding, non-stressful way, quite easily, if you know how to phrase yourself well. A lot (although not all) people are fairly open to this.
If someone thinks that violence against AI labs is good, then they probably really wouldn’t want you talking about it on a publicly accessible, fairly well-known website. It’s a very bad strategy from most pro-violence perspectives.
I’m going to quite strongly suggest, regardless of anyone’s perspectives on this topic, that you probably shouldn’t discuss it here—there are very few angles from which this could be imagined to be a good thing for any rationalism-associated person/movement. Or at least that you put a lot of thought into how you talk about it. Optics are a real and valuable thing, as annoying as that is.Even certain styles of discussing anti-violence can come across as optically weird if you phrase yourself in certain ways.
