I definitely understand what you're saying- And optimism is a beautiful thing. Technology, and advancement of society is necessary. But, there are many advancements in society that have become corrupted and misused - God, even the television is my arch nemisis, so to speak. Do I watch TV, yes. Can it be useful, of course. Does it corrupt? It does. And, one could argue that it corrupts those that let themselves be corrupted; okay, this is also correct. But, what about the people in the middle? What about those who must abide by their surroundings, by Fox and ABC news, or reality televsion, for intelligence and entertainment. Is it fair to them?
Now, Im a little off topic here, but my point is clear in its essence, but hard to define exactly. Basically, Im all for conveinence. I'm constantly rushing around and things that make my life easier, well, I love them. And, I cannot stress enough how proud and reassuring it is to see Human growth and advancement. But if thats all that this boiled down to, well then, where the hell is my electronic GPS navigated car? Wheres the free medical help, and why is identity theft still a problem.
Give me a government who has PROVEN that they are, in fact, trying to help make our lives easier, and are not trying to 'gain' anything from this 'forward step' and I will glady take my ID/ the microchip happily. Until then.....Well, until then, Ill be here waiting for our American Revolution and praying for the lives of the 'good' and helpless.
