The general consensus is that tech is neither good, nor bad. It depends on what it is used for by Women and Men! Cure a disease is good, making bigger bombs for war is bad.
The debate from a few days ago was about money. Research money! Why military research receives a lot more money that all other research areas combined. We are a warmongering race and that is wrong. All these resources invested in military research and peace keeping are wasted money.
In that debate, I argued that it’s not all wasted money. That some or all discoveries from military research had a direct impact on civilian research and we all benefited from them. “Military inventions civilian use”. Google it! 🙂
