"Men did not love Rome because she was great. She was great because they had loved her." -- G.K. Chesterton
Engineers are among the most useful people in this world. That's all I have to say about that.
Designers and decision makers on the other hand.........
I dont think any ideology of this world so far has been good at all. I think they all suck.
However, I do see positive sides in all ideologies, and we should create new ideologies, based on the positive features of all previous ideologies I would think..
Democracy is not perfect, by far not. Actually, its turning out that democracy turns into tyrrany, just like Plato said.
Technologies are primitive because we don't put existing technologies together in a very benefitial and advanced way. So I mean that technologies are very primitive relative to their own potential when applied in a better way.
Besides, I think there are far more important things in this world than just technology. In fact, I think our society is falling into a technology trap, where we think too much of technology and not enough about other things.

2) It is not rational to manufacture anything if there is zero opportunity to make more money than it costs. In fact that would be self-destructive.
3) Again, whether the maker of something profits or not has nothing to do with the product's usefulness.
I'm no computer industry expert, so if you really know what you're talking about, then perhaps you have stumbled on an untapped market and thus have a good business and/or investment opportunity.I can mention a mobile computer with tons of realistic specifications that I want, but it just does not exist, because it is more profitable to make common trash.
You haven't thought this one through. The energy we use to produce and distribute food is significant, and shipping it to every human on the planet would be a waste of that energy. Plus you would artificially be enabling further overpopulation, which you complained about in a recent post. Conundrum!Actually, what you say there is very interesting, because with a minimum amount of effort, the world could produce and distibute superior quality food to every single person on earth, if we wanted.
You can say it a million times that there is no such thing as property rights, but that doesn't make it true. No wonder you're frustrated. Insisting that the world belongs to you when in fact it doesn't.Yes it is. Thats my tree as well. In fact, it is everyone in this worlds tree.
No one is "aiming" for a certain world. The world is the world. It is supremely arrogant to think that the world and all the people in it can, will or should bend to your will.Nope, not really. A better world is possible, its just such a shame so few people want it.
Are you saying we should rather aim for a ****ty world
It is unhealthy to expect perfection and get bitter and angry when it doesn't happen. It's never happened and it will never happened. It leads nowhere other than to nihilism.then and not try to create a good society and a perfect world for everyone?
I just recognize irrational bitterness, idealism and entitlement when I see it.It seems like you think no further than the tip of your nose and your nationalism.
