Where is the Technology Train Going?June 15, 2021
Ever wonder where all these ‘technological advancements’ are heading? Hint: NOT humanity.
Technology is a product of the banking industry. It is only deployed when it can return the initial investment or the loans from which the money was printed. This narrows technologies future scope. There will be no technology to eliminate poverty because poverty by definition has no money to pay for the technology. Technology can only advance in a direction where it can outperform either people or older technologies while costing less as well.
Take the health care industry, for example. It’s massive and quickly rising on the radar of the technology companies. One glaring example is one of the remaining strengths in the job market; nursing. As the baby boomers are getting older nurses are in demand and are getting compensated handsomely. There are many companies pursuing robotic nurses not only to do the work but also to provide companionship to the patients.
Why aren’t human nurses good enough? Because robots have the potential of doing it for less and make a big profit for the technology companies.
A window into how the future could go wrong can be seen in the show ‘West World’. The billionaire class in ‘West World’ spend millions of dollars to have their wildest fantasies come to life. Their fantasies are acted out by robots that are so lifelike that not even the robots know they are robots. It all goes wrong as the code is altered giving the ‘hosts’ the ability to remember their past experiences as they wake up to the realization that they are slaves to the guests and their demented fantasies.
There is No Happy Ending
More then 70% of Fortune 500 companies are considered to be technology companies. They are all engaged in the deployment of artificial intelligence technology. If they don’t, they risk being outsmarted by the competition. One has to wonder, where is this going?
Do you ever wonder if technology has turned out to be a great big disappointment? On my website, I document how people sit around the dinner table looking at their phones and not talking to each other. Facebook has made it possible for large portions of the population to be influenced to the point that it is changing elections all over the world. Technology is not bringing us utopia – it is bringing us to dystopia.
That means humanity is at a crossroads. Either humanity is here for the sake of humanity or humanity is hear as a stepping stone for an artificial super intelligence. Technology is already showing its weaknesses and mankind has so much potential. It’s time to choose humanity over technology, it’s time we choose today over the debt payments of tomorrow. We can either be the frog in the hot water thinking everything is fine; or we can fight back by taking the bankers out of the Federal Reserve and put an end to their inhumane pursuits.
