Letter: Missing jet shows technology’s flaws

Missing jet shows technology’s flaws

With the recent tragic loss of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, many people may hopefully begin to realize that while technology may hide the risks of everyday life, technology is only a diaper that fills up quickly once the forces of nature are unleashed.

One begins to see this same unhealthy confidence in technology being displayed by our politicians and those in academia, as they promote technology as a shield while all along it only gives a false sense of security.

Technology gives politicians a false sense of security that will have them believing that the ground is coming up to greet them when, in actuality, it’s the other way around.
