One of the erroneous assumptions underlying this kind of thinking is that technological advancement is synonymous with "progress", a fabricated axiom of the corporate state that I believe will eventually be responsible for killing every living thing on the planet but not before the more astute among us BEG for death because life is so empty, poisonous, and misereable.

What offends me even more is that no consideration is given to the fact that much of the USA's "progess" comes at the expense of the other nations it is being compared against, AND that our technologies and US based multinationals are used to subjegate these other nations even further. Its not so much that we are "lucky" as it is that we have no scrupals.

Thirdly, I have to question the value of technological efforts that are not geared toward freeing people from meaningless, shallow, 9 to 5 clock punching labor and I've come to feel great disdain for nations that endeavor to do exactly the opposite.....such as the USA.
