The Hyde of Humanity

After seeing Naqoyqatsi yesterday, I read this essay by Joss Whedon today where he rants about the violence and exploitation of women–part of it due to twisted uses of technology. I think it’s very easy to fall into this depressive rut of believing that science and technology will drag us into an apocalyptic future where only the trivial and the destructive hold sway. But there is nothing inherently evil or good about technology–it only has duality because we are the ones wielding it.
