Technology - is it better for democracy or autocracy, both or neither?
@tomosaigon Is a knife better for cutting food, or for killing people?
@rudolf Is the wielder/victim a democrat or autocrat?
@tomosaigon @rudolf Knowledge itself isn't bad. The way people use it makes it bad. Objects are neutral. It is the way in which people use it that makes it good or bad
@XxAlexXx @rudolf That can be true but at the same time any technology can tend to favor people or favor slave-masters instead.
