Do you think the only reason that someone might have concerns about unlimited internet access to the internet for pre-teens is because they are authoritarians

Quite a good demonstration of the limitations of deep-fake AI. You just know after a minute or two that this. isn’t Ryan Gosling, or if it is - that he is being held hostage
