In this episode, Carla and Luke discuss their paper Democratising Risk which lays out their critiques of the field of existential risk. They argue that the field is dominated by a particular paradigm, the Techno-Utopian Approach (TUA), which is unrepresentative of the general public's values, and may even lead to a higher risk of large scale catastrophes.
We also discuss the possible structural reforms that the EA community could make to make decision making more democratic and less centralized.
