Writer's Block: Luddites unite!

Are you worried about where technology will lead us? Do you think it's possible that civilization may someday turn away from technology altogether for the betterment of humankind?

This is one of the more inane QotD I've seen. Civilization and technology are what make us capable of what we are today. Technology allows us to live longer,healthier lives with less effort and danger than at any other time in humanity's existence. We have eradicated diseases which used to be the scourges of the Earth, we have built cities that scrape the clouds and landed on the Moon, we now send our eyes and ears across the entire solar system -- and we do so without risking a single human being.

I am alive today -- multiple times over -- because of high technology. I live a better life now than I did 30 years ago, because technology continues to advance. Turn away from technology? That would be the destruction of mankind, not its betterment.
