A look into the answers from ChatGPT about this blog…

A typical story on the blog might cover a recent political event or development in Uganda or elsewhere in Africa, such as an election, a protest, or a government policy announcement. The blog may provide background information on the issue, as well as analysis of its potential impact on society and politics. In addition, the blog often covers issues related to human rights, corruption, and social justice, particularly as they relate to Uganda and other African countries. These stories may profile individual activists, politicians, or community leaders who are working to address these issues, and provide analysis of the broader social and political context in which they are operating” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

Today, I dared to try and test the Artificial Intelligence and ChatBot – ChatGPT, which has been a feature and a hot topic. I fixated it on my own blog and the perspectives of it. It was done very similar and easy questions. Because, I wanted a simple scope.

To be honest, the ChatGPT surprised me… and made me laugh to. The first part, which got me cracking was the “author” or the “individual” behind it was a Simon Peter Esaku. That is what the ChatGPT said, which isn’t true. I won’t state who I am and I never have, but I can with an easy assessment say that it’s not the case. Me and Simon Peter Esaku is to very different people.

When I asked about the content on the page and what themes that was prevalent the ChatGPT was on point. What was extra cool was when I asked about the structure of the blog posts and such. It came up with this:

A typical post on Minbane.wordpress.com might have the following characteristics:

Title: A descriptive title that hints at the content of the article.

Introduction: A brief introduction that sets up the topic of the post and provides some context for the reader.

Body: The main body of the post, which will usually cover a specific political issue or event in Uganda or Africa. The post may include analysis, commentary, or news reporting on the issue, as well as quotes from relevant sources such as government officials, activists, or experts.

Conclusion: A concluding section that summarizes the key points of the post and offers some closing thoughts or opinions.

References: Links or citations to relevant sources, such as news articles, reports, or other blog posts, which the author used to research and write the post” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

This just shows how the ChatGPT is digesting the information and how it collects the data. When it is so accurate on this instance. I felt it was describing my typical blog post or articles to a T. It was really intriguing. To some extent, this was spot-on.

The ChatGPT said I used “strong language” on my blog. So, I asked by what it meant and here was the response:

For example, in some posts, the author may use language that is critical of the government or political leaders, calling them corrupt, inept, or oppressive. The author may also use language that is forceful or emotional to express their support for social justice issues, such as human rights or democracy” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

Well, you can’t write cute tales about oppression, human rights violations and direct injustice in general. When you describe these matters and gives a push-back. You can’t use soft words and be diplomatic about it. Because, when you are calling a government out about it. You just have to settle the record straight and that will be done with fierce words.

I also asked the ChatGPT why the blog is critical of the Ugandan Government and the answer was very neat:

Based on the content of Minbane.wordpress.com, the blog appears to be critical of the Ugandan government due to concerns over issues such as corruption, human rights abuses, and a lack of transparency and accountability in governance. For example, the blog has published numerous articles on corruption scandals involving government officials, such as the embezzlement of public funds or the abuse of power for personal gain. The blog has also reported on cases of human rights abuses, such as police brutality, restrictions on freedom of speech, and discrimination against minority groups. In addition, the blog has expressed concerns about the lack of transparency and accountability in governance in Uganda, particularly with regards to elections and political decision-making. The blog has criticized the government’s handling of elections, which it argues have been marred by irregularities, and has called for greater transparency in political decision-making processes” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

There is nothing to call out here or state otherwise. This answer was correct and the sentiments of the answer is according to the author. So, the ChatGPT has been good to assess the articles and the blog post in question. It is amazing how it composed it.

I asked what the ChatGPT what the blog thought of Museveni…. Here is the answer:

Some of the specific criticisms of Museveni that have been expressed on the blog include allegations of corruption and human rights abuses, concerns over his handling of elections and political opposition, and criticisms of his economic policies and development strategies. The blog has also been critical of Museveni’s attempts to extend his rule beyond his current term, and has called for greater accountability and transparency in Ugandan politics. Overall, it appears that Minbane.wordpress.com views Museveni’s leadership as problematic, and is critical of many of the policies and actions of his government” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

I cannot say this is wrong by any stretch of the imagination. Though it is funny to see it described that way. I have been direct and told straight facts about the reign of Museveni. All from term-limits, usage of impunity, injustice and his oppressive behaviour against the opposition. Therefore, the words of ChatGPT is interesting and this is how someone could describe it.

When asking what is controversial about the blog. This sentence was the most special: “One of the most controversial aspects of the blog is its strong language and criticism of the Ugandan government and President Yoweri Museveni in particular.” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

Well, like stated before… you cannot act or speak softly of certain aspects of life. When the authorities and the state is using draconian means, use violence and have oppressive strategies against it’s dissidents. You have to call it out and sometimes your emotions make you more harsh or more brutal in your words. Still, the sentiment used in these instances has been for the greater good.

Which also the ChatGPT explains as well:

This critical stance has led to accusations of bias and partiality by some readers, particularly those who support the Ugandan government. However, the blog has defended its approach as a necessary means of holding those in power accountable and promoting transparency and democracy in Uganda” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

This is particularly funny to me, because I have gotten most pushback by NRM friendly fellows or Stan’s of Museveni. They have piled on me, but never explained their stance and only disregarded my reasoning without any proper justification of doing so. Therefore, it has been easy for me to defend and come clean. While I feel they haven’t taken the challenge or tried to consider the opposition in this regard. If they had… they would have addressed the grievances and actually listen to the plights of the dissidents. Instead of using more injustice and impunity.

I could really just continue and continue, because the answers are really unique for me. It was fun to dive into this… and see what it said. Though, I can state the ChatGPT was wrong about the identity of the writer and author of the blog.

While I find it striking how it was able to analyse the content and the structures of the articles. That is really amazing. I was impressed by this… and found it very interesting. I hope someone with more technical insight and ability can look into the way the ChatGPT is able to collect this. Since it has to do that and then quickly describe it. I’m impressed by that. Peace.
