Technology does not make us any better

Technology didn’t make our lives better, it simply changed what we can accomplish, but it seems, humans are still very much like we were 100 year ago:

Greedy, Selfish, Looking to impress, Wanting to do good, Doing good and so the list goes on.

We now only have better tools. Tools that allow us to do more harm and more good. But this is just more of the same. More of what we’ve always been doing. More harm but also more good.

They say it is exactly the same with money. Money doesn’t make you bad or good it just amplifies who you already are. Money gives you more options, but which ones you choose largely depend on who you are.

It all balances out in the end. We should not look to technology to make our lives better, we should look at how we treat the people who can do nothing for us. That is who we are. If we can better that, we can better ourselves.
