Liberty MUST embrace technology and science or we WILL lose this fight.Submitted by firefox on Sun, 08/11/2013 - 14:21
Liberty MUST embrace technology. It's only a tool, it's not evil.
A growing majority of the liberty movement is denouncing technology as evil and refuses to participate under the notion that it's inherently evil. This is dangerous thinking and only helps the powers that be.
Technology is only a tool and serves to amplify one's potential. Calling tech evil serves to mentally blockade yourself from engaging in it's powers. To be ignorant of technology means "they" have the upper hand by default and you can't win a fight if you don't understand the battlefield.
If the liberty community hopes to win the long fight then we must embrace technology or we WILL lose this fight. IF we fail to utilize tech then the disparity of amplifying power will only grow larger and larger as time goes on, in favor of "evil".
There is an expression, "Old World Blues" which I think many in the liberty movement suffers from. It refers to those so obsessed with the past they can't see the present, much less the future, for what it is. They stare into the what-was, eyes like a dying flame, hopeless and lost, as the realities of their world continue on around them. Feeling powerless to stop it because they are ignorant of technology and the power it brings.
It can be easy to see Science as evil, technology unchecked as the source of all ills, all misfortunes. With the liberty movement at the helm of Science, liberty and freedom can become a beacon for the future. If we reject technology and science then we lose everything because we fail to take control of our future...
WE must get with the times and use technology to amplify our message before all is lost. I'm calling on you revolutionaries to rid yourself of the old world blues and embrace the future so you can control your future..
edit for clarity
When I say embrace tech, I don't mean using it or even liking tech.
What I'm saying is we need to become knowledgeable about technology(especially the newest sciences) so we understand what we can use it for to further our message AND to understand the how tech is being used agianst us by the "other side".
An example being you must first understand how the bank system works before you can reform the system by attacking its faults and learning from it's positive traits.. If one just rejects banking as evil without first understanding how it works, then they can't convincingly explain its faults to enact change. Can't just scream BURN IT DOWN without saying why.
