TECHNOLOGICAL FIX

In confronting big societal problems or those causing human inconvenience / irritation, I look to human technological ingenuity, and engineering design / problem solving skills. I trust engineers and planners using technology assessment to find technology-based solutions to such problems. Their efforts have steadily brought nature under human control and increased human comfort. (Note: critics say that labor-saving “advances” have promoted unhealthy sedentary lifestyles, and social media, etc. have promoted virtual interactions over in person, real ones!)

ATTITUDINAL FIX

In confronting big societal problems or those causing human inconvenience / irritation, I look to changing attitudes and associated behaviors. This is done through education, drawing on existing social institutions. Defusing any anxiety / mistrust conflict brings is a good first step (humor can help!)  I trust in people coming together and cooperating; in their willingness to learn from each other sharing worldviews, articulating values and goals. This can resolve conflicts and find non-technology (or human labor /soft technology) based “win, win” imaginative solutions.
