We can create an environment with competition, evolution and life, but without the parasites
I wish I could share your optimism that an equitable application of new technologies can/will prevail. That said, I'm so glad the report received a largely negative mixed reception.
Good points Conrad. As a digital anthropologist working at the intersection of human culture and technology, our understanding of technology is that it has always been the result of our imagination. We may have well, stolen, some technology from pre-humans like Neanderthals. So it is neither symbiotic nor parasitic. Humans cannot live without technology. It is, like culture, part of our evolutionary path. And your points about capitalism are well stated.
