I agree that technology is just a tool ...

I agree that technology is just a tool that can be used for good or bad purposes. The internet for example as pointed out by Ron Paul offers unprecedented opportunity to educate the masses on the merits of liberty over the dictates of tyranny.

But, if we continue to allow our technology to be governed by global corporatism, the consequences are crystal clear. Don't take my word for it, listen to the corporatists themselves...

In the documentary, We Feed the World, then-CEO of Nestlé, the world’s largest foodstuff corporation, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, shared some of his own views and ‘wisdom’ about the world and humanity. Brabeck believes that Nature is not “good,” that there is nothing to worry about with GMO foods, that profits matter above all else, that people should work more, and that human beings do not have a right to water.

“We’ve never had it so good, we’ve never had so much money, we’ve never been so healthy, we’ve never lived as long as we do today. We have everything we want and we still go around as if we were in mourning for something. At the end of the video, while watching a promotional video of a Nestlé factory in Japan, Brabeck boasts, “You can see how modern these factories are; highly robotized almost no people.”
