The price of the existence of intelligence, is the existence of 
stupidity. I am afraid that the price of super-intelligence is 
super-stupidity, and if you are not super-intelligent yourself, then 
you cannot be sure of making the difference, and you are taking the 
risk of alerting the super-idiots of the universe ...
So be careful when writing the "social contract". What do *you* intend 
to put in the contract?
