I understand there are various levels on which one can express one's loves. One can love Suzy, or kind pretty funny women, or the woman selected by a panel of judges, or the the one selected by a judging process designed by a certain AI strategy, etc. But even very meta loves are loves. You want an AI that loves the choices made by a certain meta process that considers the wants of many, and that may well be a superior love. But it is still a love, your love, and the love you want to give the AI. You might think the world should be grateful to be placed under the control of such a superior love, but many of them will not see it that way; they will see your attempt to create an AI to take over the world as an act of war against them.
