You said, and I quote:
The world would be way better off without technology.
I see......so if you or a loved one ever needed a MRI done to determine something seriously wrong with you, they are being "lazy" or that technology
that does that scan is "evil"?
A man get's to be in his 50's........and maybe he should have a PSA test done to make sure he's not ending up with prostrate cancer, which if
caught early enough can be taken care off just fine.......
Ah, but wait, that involved inventing a lot of technology that finally lead to that. Better that we just let the man dying of something that is easily
caught and cured in today's world?
Need to get to somewhere over seas? Let's say to hell with GPS and weather satellite's and weather radars. Further more let's say to hell with the
engines and just set sail.....
As with many things in our world, it can be a double edged blade. Many things in the world can be used in a destructive way or in a way that people
can benefit from.
War does cause things to be invented. It causes more powerful weapons. It also invents things that get used to help people.
A double edged sword.
It's always been that way, from the first human to pick up a bone and used it as a weapon to take down a larger source of meat to feed
everyone..........which also worked great to easily take down a fellow human.
Don't like it? No one said you had to. Just as no one is forcing you to use some very advanced technology that allows you to make a post that
literally billions of people around the world can see almost instantly.
Technology and science is not evil or bad.
People who use and invent some of those things on the other hand.............
So put the blame where it really belongs: on people who'd rather see money spent on the military complex (what is it? Something like over 800 billion
a year?) instead of a meager 20 billion spent on space exploration......
Which without you would not be making the post you're making right now by the way.......
