Let’s take another look at this selection from the 2013 Catalyst Thesis: “The wealth disparities between countries, visible through communication media, are a ‘threat’ to nations. That people in vastly different economic conditions are able to see each other’s lifestyles as if through a thin glass pane makes it very difficult to conceal the injustices of the global economic village at present. Immanuel Wallerstein has considered this division between the highly rich technological powers and the masses of voiceless and exploited people in poor countries as the key defining struggle in the throes of the world’s transition to the next level of modernity. Because of this greater enlightenment through media, one of the most basic requisites of techno-liberation is a broadened understanding of the shape of global exploitation. Such understanding requires us to admit it is anchored in unjust technological disparities and monopolies. In the past, radical technological changes did indeed bring unfair advantages to one or more nations over the rest, or empowered rulers to control and oppress their subjects. It is worth now considering if such an unfortunate outcome is already disappearing. Through the same affairs that are making technology unpredictable, we are seeing them run wild out of the hands of their own inventors and the rulers. Now, for the first time ever, the trend is working to empower everyone.” HUMANS ARE NO PINNACLE, MODERNITY IS NO END. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html
