The bigger point is, we are no better off morally today than we ever were.
Ive been saying this for some time now on this board.
You can pump in all the science and technology you want...it is not going to make us better people. I dont care how many touchy feely emotions people want to put on it.
And Once science is controlled by the body politic..it becomes very much whoredom. Used/misused to serve the body politic.
Science may put us in better cars, homes, clothes, telephones, televisions..but it will not make us better people. Not going to happen. Better consumers..yes...better people...no.
