TECHNO-UTOPIANISM & THE FATE OF THE EARTH
Technological innovation, celebrated throughout history, has had profound effects upon Nature, and human beings– our ways of thought, operating systems, power structures, and how we experience our own existence. This is especially so in the new cyber-tech world. Justifications still range from humanity’s “unquenchable thirst” for knowledge, to the imperatives of economic growth, wealth and power in our economic system, to the acclaimed search to bring comfort and happiness to a global population. So, how have we done? What have been the trade offs? Meanwhile, spectacular, dreadful impacts continue and accelerate. Immediate change is required in our thinking, behavior, values and economies, before Nature and human society are terminated.
