Critical thinking is a responsibility for every intelligent agent, just as the benefaction of the critical thought of others ought to be a right for all sufferable life. Millions of hollocaust victims were at the mercy of men just following orders. Never again

I thought you were going to cite this, which shows a much higher level of critical thinking than most people can manage.

2Viliam5yThank you for the applause lights, but how do we give this "critical thinking" to all the intelligent agents? We probably can't do that even for the majority of humans in developed world.
