Tech lovers believe in the constant progression upward. They believe that as technology advances, the world gets better and more secular.
Part of this reasoning is the hope that technology will rise to the point where moral choices are no longer needed. All human needs are taken care of and we all get along and play with our toys all day.
Is this realistic? Not sure. There’s that pesky thing called “human nature”. And also the depressing thought that life is nothing more than playing with toys?
