Can This Book Prevent Human Extinction? | VICE World News Meets

Created In Partnership With BasicBooks

Are we on the precipice of an AI-induced lock-in of authoritarian values? Will we be wiped
out by a new pandemic caused by artificially created pathogens or perhaps face civilisation
collapse from the devastating effects of climate change?

Future people could outnumber those alive today by 10,000 to 1, which means a lot of lives
are in the balance. So if we want to achieve the most good with our own existence, should
we not be doing more to help them rather than those at present?

This is the central argument of a new book by William MacAskill, What We Owe The Future,
in which he lays out his reasoning for taking a longer mast approach. VICE World News sent
Iman Amrani to ask him some questions about long term, why future generations are
disenfranchised and what we can do about it today.
