Technology Fixes (and why they are a red herring)


In _Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed_, Jared Diamond says:

“All of our current problems are unintended negative consequences of our existing technology. The rapid advances in technology during the 20th century have been creating difficult new problems faster than they have been solving old problems: that’s why we’re in the situation in which we now find oursleves. What makes you think that, as of January 1, 2006, for the first time in human history, technology will miraculously stop causing new unanticipated problems while it just solves the problems it previously produced?” (Diamond, 505)
