Technological Dystopia

The 3rd Pinning and Whitecoat Ceremony was held final May possibly 21, 2014 at The Farm @ Carpenter Hills. The main explanation why the Luddites had been wrong is simply because technological improvements produced for less costly goods, which left customers with much more funds in their pockets to get other goods – which means that jobs have been produced elsewhere and there was often a lot of demand for workers. As more and much more distinct industries are far more deeply and fully mechanized, and as our technology becomes ever more advanced, we are beginning to run out of things that folks can do greater than machines.

This means that as jobs are lost to technological automation it is tougher to locate new issues that individuals can do – and any new jobs produced are probably to skip the middleman and go straight to the machines. Pc technologies has also began to attain the point exactly where machines can play a major role in the design, operation, and upkeep of other machines. The near future could see widespread redundancies across a wide variety of industries, and there is little sign of exactly where new jobs could come from. Add the transhumanist agenda to ‘upgrade’ humanity employing technologies and it is effortless to see the possible for a new ‘master race’ to emerge.

Driverless vehicles are an excellent example of a technology which is nearly prepared for mass adoption, and which could simply leave numerous millions of men and women around the planet who are currently working in the transportation sector with no a job. The opposite side of the coin to the oppressive government and big enterprise handle described above is the prospective of technologies to empower ordinary individuals.

Increasing economic inequality, possibly increased even further by automation as described above, combined with the continued improvement of costly health-related technologies, could lead to a considerably much more pronounced rift in between a lengthy-lived and healthful elite and the ordinary mass of humanity. Huge data enables those who have these sources to analyse us and predict our behaviour to a terrifying degree. More men and females each would abandon the loved ones when they got fired from their jobs.

There is a very serious danger that in the close to future technology will make numerous of these previously not possible demands which we have placed on our governments totally feasible. Already the principal enemies of the western world appear to be loose-knit groups of folks who have grow to be empowered by technologies to take on the most potent nations in the world – rather than other nation states. A lot of education programs for vocational careers qualify you far more rapidly for an entry-level job than a four-year degree.
