Grimes is making waves on social media after delivering a plea for communists to get on board with artificial intelligence.
The musical artist, whose real name is Claire Boucher, took to TikTok on Wednesday to share a video of herself explaining why she considers AI “the fastest path to communism.”
“I have a proposition for the communists,” said Grimes, 33. “So, typically, most of the communists I know are not big fans of AI. But, if you think about it, AI is actually the fastest path to communism.”
According to Grimes, “if implemented correctly,” artificial intelligence could “theoretically solve for abundance.”
“Like, we could totally get to a situation where nobody has to work, everybody is provided for with a comfortable state of being, comfortable living,” she continued. “AI could automate all the farming, weed out systemic corruption, thereby bringing us to, as close as possible, genuine equality.”
Grimes added that AI can provide “everything everybody loves about communism, but without the collective farm.”
” ‘Cause, let’s be real, enforced farming is really not a vibe,” she said.
The video has drawn over 1.6 million views on TikTok, along with criticism on Twitter.
