"It is the business of the future to be dangerous.... The major advances in civilization
are processes that all but wreck the societies in which they occur"

Alfred North Whitehead

Technology has always reshaped a socities value systems.  What so scary now is that are humanity is now global and varied and is reacting directly to technology in completely different ways in different places. It is a truely unique time in history. The mid dawn of the information age has way bigger variables and is fucking scary.
