Actually technology is in large measure a product of culture and culture is overwhelmingly a product of demographics. Personally I agree with
Martin Heidegger's treatment of technology and culture. The matter is a bit involved to get into here since it also has a lot to do with psychometrics but you want to discuss the matter I suppose we could if I can find the time.

Of course I suppose you could just be lampooning my comments and suggesting I am some Col. Blimp style crank. If so you need to understand that Modernity is synonymous with technology and Traditionalism is neither a longing for an idealized past nor an irrational, Ludite like rejection technology.
