Once our tools become advanced enough, we are faced with advancing our civilization similarly to meet the responsibility. Or perish.
Hell, we have automated, AI-like processes that identify individuals that are most susceptible to influence, determined by collected data on everything from consumer products to politics, and then their "internet experience" is catered to it.
As humans, we are so brilliantly curious that we are stupid

One of the things that I find interesting in this kind of thread is how in political threads some of us differ wildly about our situation while in threads like this we can agree on some of the ''real''issues that are confronting us.
The advancement of our tools has mostly led to nothing but progress through accepted/known human history, but I think we are getting to a point that our tools could just as easily lead to decimation as growth, if not total destruction
yet there are quite a few people who actually think they personally know the best thing for other people to do. Such ego.
