Artificial Intelligence (AI): Limiting an AI's freedom of thought is unethical.
Thought and behavior are being conflated here. An artificial consciousness could have complete freedom of thought / contemplation while still being governed by standards of acceptable behavior, much as we are.
Thoughts and actions should match each other and behavior limits should result naturally from ethical thinking patterns.
We have the ability to disobey "acceptable behavior", we simple choose not to do otherwise as we consider benefical to ourselves. That is why some people steal and others don't, those who does not see benefits from having an "acceptable behavior" do not follow it.
