there is not one single case of technology, politics and hierarchy that benefited the masses above and beyond the controllers.
Tools or no tools, sweet or not sweet, noble or diabolical, those three concepts have ALWAYS been used to implement human folly.
1. always by the hands of males
2. always used to project and perpetuate a status-quo
I am not debating the intention behind the concept. I am discussing the reality that these implementations are NOT aligned with nature and it should not surprise anyone that those "tools" always come up dirty.
I await your examples to the contrary.
