The technological madness of an unbridled surveillance state led by the NSA, with no reasonable limitations as to man's relationship to God; to its
effects on human nature, and clean moral values has forced the hand of all world leaders (with no good choices available) into an untenable position;
so much so that the moral basis for the values that underlie human trust amongst persons has almost completely disappeared. Gone are the days of a
good word, or even a good conversation between diplomats and leaders based on trustworthiness. Gone are the days of reliance on a trusting handshake
as reflective of one persons honorable intentions towards another.
This quote sums it up for me as to what technology without restraint leads us to - pride in our own accomplishments and spiritual emptiness: "The
fact is there is nothing that you can trust; and that is a terrible fact, whether you like it or not. Psychologically there is nothing in the world,
that you can put your faith, your trust, or your belief in. Neither your gods, nor your science can save you, can bring you psychological certainty;
and you have to accept that you can trust in absolutely nothing. That is a scientific fact, as well as a psychological fact. Because, your
leaders — religious and political — and your books — sacred and profane — have all failed, and you are still confused, in misery, in
conflict. So, that is an absolute, undeniable fact.
