I sight the first technological advancement, and I agree they are all adulterations, as Farming. However, I see it as evolving from the Feminine principle. Would you not agree that hunter-gathering might be well suited to the males but for females it isn't sustainable? If you do not I'll understand as you cannot help being male.
This is my non-judgemental reason for defending technology. The female is vital to the survival of the human species; had humans continued their H&G way of life we would by now be extinct. Much like the Neanderthal. So I am left with this realization, if survival is instinctual/natural then human innovation that prolongs the survival of the species has to be "aight."
But you are correct in stating that our capacity for acceptance has a dark side. The way to wrestle control from the dark influence however, is to control the message. Lets use another Obama analogy; he is on the road campaigning again to the people because the stooges in Congress have stolen the platform and have begun to control the message. Consider this; last Fall when AIG was receiving a ton of free money, there was not the same outrage as there is today for a few million which amounts to less than the average annual earnings of America's top 5%.($225,000,000) "Joe the Plumber" would not see that kind of money even if he won the lottery a few times. But just like Congress saved their outrage for the "working stiffs" of the Auto manufacturing industry last Fall, they have likewise reserved their outrage for the "working stiffs" at AIG. This does not mean that Obama is being any more honest; it just means that he will be heard.
