TECHNOLOGY AS AN INSTRUMENT OF EXPLOITATION.
A total stranger with a gun can confiscate your land,
Rape your wife and children, and kill you.
Because he has gun technology and you do not.
Guns have become instruments of exploitation.
Another stranger lands on your shores in large ships,
Armed with guns, proceeds to cart off entire villages,
To foreign lands for uncompensated slave labor.
Guns and large ships, instruments of exploitation.
Later same strangers arrive with even bigger ships,
To cart off your natural resources in exchange for pennies,
Protest, and gunships are sent to silence you.
Large ships and gunships, facilitate exploitation.
Small aircraft necessary for recreation and sport.
Jumbo aircraft needed to transfer large amounts,
Of wealth in the shortest possible time from poor,
To rich nations, the rich become richer, impoverishing the poor.
Spacecrafts sent into space for exploitative purposes,
Asteroid and Planet mining, to follow in short order.
Every new technology has a sinister exploitative motive.
Technology is an instrument of exploitation, not civilization.
