Technology is not the enemy. Greed is the enemy.

"Television" is not turning our children’s brains to mush. It’s the cheap formulaic fodder and faux-news pushed onto television by corporations trying to sell ad slots that’s turning our children’s brains to mush.

"Video games" are not devoid of moral message. It’s sequel upon sequel of bland FPSes rolled out by companies that only care about pacifying their white male poser demographic that are devoid of moral message.

"The internet" is not stifling creativity and communication. With access to the internet, people are communicating and sharing their creations more easily than ever. But allowing those in power to choose what we see and say on the internet will turn it into one more mouthpiece for the approved media message.

"Transhumanism" is not a tool for making the rich richer and the poor obsolete. Transhumanism, if abused, could be that tool. But it doesn’t have to be. It can be a tool for empowerment.

Stop blaming “technology” as if getting rid of wires and gadgets will miraculously fix the flaws of humankind. The flaw isn’t in tech. The flaw is in thinking. If that can be fixed, everything we create might end up serving a higher purpose. If it can’t, we’ll eventually use it to destroy ourselves.

Simple as that.
