WHAT PEOPLE THINK ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ARE: wow.... we're creating... new life........
WHAT ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ACTUALLY ARE: techbros worshiping the almighty algorithm, not caring to look at what bad patterns the machines are picking up (racism, sexism, etc) and how to avert them, and overreliance on neural networks meaning that said algorithms are treated as magical black boxes where nobody wants to (or can, really) point out exactly how the equation works (and why it may be faulty)

the massive flaw of the "there is no ethical consumption under capitalism" argument is that responsible consumption is a matter of practice and applied intelligence, i.e. it needs practice, thus people who use it to argue that they don't need to put any effort into their own style of consumption under current circumstances are actively harming the outcome of any system resulting from overthrowing capitalism in advance, and they're also harming what Foucault would call heterotopias, i.e. those seeds of a new world sown in the one we live such as worker cooperatives
every little bit of money that flows into there heterotopias as in investment into a future where money is obsolete, and into the livelihoods of people trying to escape from this system using their skills
hence, the slogan "there is no ethical consumption under capitalism" is antithetical to any efforts of building a socialist, i.e. more ethical system of production and consumption, a less alienated one, it simply increases the level of alienation
