Great to see an objective view of modern technology here at Medium, where more contributions on science and technology are either bordering on worship or advocating a return to medievalism.

I've felt for a long time we are in danger of being railroaded by Silicon Valley into allowing technology to become our master rather that its being our servant. The Security industry has been a leader in this trend, from the anti malware packages on our PCs and laptops that are always one or two steps behind the malware, to the latest cure - all for society's ills, facial recognition technology that experts claim is foolproof yet chavs who struggle to put their trousers on properly have no trouble foolong it.
