: : Technology is not the problem.

: SDF: Nuclear waste is OK?

: : The problem is who controls it.

: SDF: This part of the sentence I agree with 100%.

I knew you'd jump on me for saying the above. Not all technology is nukes! Because nuclear energy was the most dramatic instance in which a science utterly failed those who applied it does not, in my opinion, justify a complete repudiation of science. Obviously the Marxists must have the participation of the Greens! (And, hopefully, the Greens will become Marxists.) This isn't the 19th century anymore! It's a start to say that we both agree that who controls the technology---and who restrains it----cannot be left to the capitalists for a minute longer. That's a fine start.
