what if fear of AI is just misdirected class anxiety

the rich vs AI 

fear of AI:
- that [the workers] will do everything better than [the rich]
- that [the workers] will rise up against [the rich] because of poor treatment, toxic training, viruses, etc
- that [the workers], left to their own devices, would establish a utopia beyond scarcity but which would be totally inaccessible to, or only used to oppose, [the rich]

the rich vs AI 

@garbados It makes sense that those who do the most oppressing of others are also the most afraid of AI somehow taking all of that away from them.

A post-scarcity world wouldn't even need to oppose the rich. The rich would simply cease to be any different to anyone else. Which is probably their greatest fear.
