The Impotence of Technology

Whenever you consider the mainstream’s portrayal of technologies, you are only presented the rose coloured glasses’ view of the issues brought about by their introductions. Rainbows and Unicorns for all thanks to everything now being “smart”. No longer will you have to worry about any responsibility in life, the Internet of Things (IOT) shall be your master. You will become its helpless servant.

All devices will contain an ever increasing array of sensors that report all back to a centralized entity. None of which is collected will ever be truly known by you. A conglomerate of commercial and governmental interests regularly purchase this data from a shadowy network of data brokers. Your life’s intimate details are simply a commodity now openly bought and sold.

The era of scientific modern technology is properly hailed as mankind’s greatest achievement. Technology has become the equivalent of the idol in the minds of the majority. A false god that only imprisons minds and darkens souls.

Technology has failed us across many fronts. Yet, few question the failures especially those in the cultural realm. The misuse of technology by humans is technology’s greatest menace. Technology is nothing more than an extension of ourselves both the good and the bad. Nothing less should ever be expected of it. History has repeatedly proven that if anything can be abused. It will be proven correct again.

    Technology will and is being used for nefarious and diabolical ends by those entrusted to govern. At first we were turned into numbers by technology, now we’re turned into mules to carry the dead weight of others undeserving of the splendor.

    By either accident or design technology has contributed to the dumbing down of society.
    Stop using any part of your body and atrophy sets in and that includes the brain.

    We are sleep walking into a society of complete surveillance and as the advancing years start to catch up on us reference points dissapear.

    I don’t think it’s by accident. We have effectively outsourced our ability to think thereby leading to brain atrophy throughout the entirety of civilization.

    No political persuasion is immune to this effect. The Neocons are just as brainwashed as the SJWs.
