Is Technology Killing Our Capacity For Perspective?

Good and fair question.

Technology should not kill our capacity for perspective if it is built well, but technology overwhelmingly ignores perspective today. For the reason that most technologists in a desperate attempt to get rich quick, have merely inherited the flaws of our systems of dominance (sold as innovation), and lack an understanding of the basic tenets of freedom, and thus perspective. With its innocent users soon becoming:

“None are more foolishly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free” (Goethe, 1749–1832).

No totalitarian model for the world will succeed, as history has proven many times. And technology systems by their algorithms generally deploy a totalitarian monism of governance, in complete disregard and ignorance to the most important promise of freedom, the value of our differences critically more important than the value of our commonalities.

Hence, while the world consists of, and thrives on the relativity of freedom to drive renewability with sovereignty to each his own, technology attempts to deploy a monism of freedom it wants the world to adopt. A systemic incompatibility. The reason why the use of technology is now frequently contested in the awoken courts of self-respecting sovereignty.

We can and must begin to deploy technology systems in adherence to a plurality of freedom, in which not the technology marketplace dictates the rules of the game but the merit of its participants.



The sign of an intelligent nation is its willingness and ability to reinvent itself, upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
