Kurzweil, despite his impressive records, is merely a puppet for those who work on AI behind the scenes. Although one of the most promoted front persons for the Movement, he is not the only one. The majority of CEOs of the mega corporations have some part in the development of the Singularity. This is obvious because, as we learned throughout the Wes Penre Papers, the Overlords own the big international companies and industries that were set up on their initiative in the first place. Not all those CEOs are public spokespersons for the Movement, although I'm sure many of them attend meetings, held behind locked doors, on this subject.
One CEO, who is out there in the forefront and sometimes in Kurzweil's company, is Microsoft's Bill Gates, which shouldn't come as a big surprise to anybody. Albeit, Gates sometimes plays the role of a fence-sitter on the subject of AI and the Singularity and has even openly spoken against the Singularity (instead he wants less intelligent robots),Raymond Kurzweil, The Singularity is Near, Chapter Five, p. 183ff.
He has also held many lectures on his own on these subjects, and those lectures have mainly, up to a certain point, been in favor of the AI Movement. He had this to say in an interview at Evolutionnews.org:
Gates was asked: "How much of an existential threat do you think machine superintelligence will be?"
He admitted: "I am in the camp, that is concerned about super intelligence." He took a somewhat more measured stance than Hawking, but sees AI as a real concern.
"First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern.
"I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don't understand why some people are not concerned," - techradar.com.

Kurzweil, in his latest book, emphasizes the importance of looking at both the pros and cons of the Singularity in order to form a public opinion, and Bill Gates plays an important role in this. These people know that in the end, the movement for the Singularity will prevail, regardless of the opportunity to have an open debate.
Even if some everyday people would be invited on television or in mass media video panel discussions, it will probably, by most people, just be looked upon as another form of entertainment, and they will most probably be designed and set up to look that way. The few who will be allowed to raise their voices in the media against the Singularity will not be able to prove that this is the actual public opinion on this subject.
Even if it were, only a handful people would speak up, and from the Controllers' point of view, these naysayers don't represent the majority, and business can continue as usual. However, by being so relatively open about their agenda, these Emissaries can, with good confidence, say afterwards that they did make efforts to inform the public, but not many took heed and voiced their opinion.
