There is a growing number of people who are becoming anti-technology these days. Recently in a long debate with a very “Pro-Human” individual as he wished to be called; we discussed the possibility that you are either pro-human or you are against us? I laughed and said well I am pro-human. He said well if you are pro-human you must be anti-technology.
That of course is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my entire life. He was basically calling technology evil and treating the “pro-human” movement a new religion. So I explained to him my position and platform, borrowing the political term.
“I am pro technology, anti religion and pro forward progression of the human race and I am pro-Capitalism, pro free markets and pro-strength of the individual. I do not believe anyone has to choose as it is not an either or, but rather a “both or all” choice and thus we must move forward.”
Why would one be against technology? Technology is good and it gives us all more free time to be more human with. I further said to him that I believed that the more technology we could have the better and I was for promoting technology whenever I could; Damn the torpedoes “full steam ahead” or in this case “warp 10 and lets bend some space time shall we?” If all this means taking some risks, then lets take some risks, stop living in fear and start moving to our destiny.
You see folks, technology is neither good or bad. If technology is used in an evil way then that is because man or those “pro-human” movement people allowed it to be used that way. Technology does not kill people; people kill people. Think on this in 2006.
