The AI Timelines Scam

This reminds me of related questions around slowing down AI, discussing AI with a mass audience, or building public support for AI policy (e.g. https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/pm6Mn4a3h4oekCCay/two-strange-things-about-ai-safety-policy, http://www.zachgroff.com/2017/08/does-ai-safety-and-effective-altruist.html). A lot of the arguments against doing these things have this same motivation that we are concerned about the others for reasons that are somewhat abstruse. Where would these "sociopolitical" considerations get us on these questions?
