So, it’s actually not clear to me that deliberate negative intentions are particularly important, here or elsewhere?
(responding, and don’t expect another response back because you’re busy).
I used to think this, but I’ve since realized that intentions STRONGLY matter. It seems like a system is fractal, the goals of the subparts/subagents get reflected in the goal of the broader system. People with aligned intentions will tend to shift the incentive gradients, as well people with unaligned intentions (of course, this isn’t a one way relationship, the incentive gradients will also shift the intentions).
