I suppose that all depends on how that technology is used in the hands of the individual. Technology has no meaning until it is given a purpose by humans. Is a gun evil, or rather, is it given a malicious purpose when used to take a life ... to save another? Besides if by being cunning you are helpful then cunning itself is helpful. But speaking on the general advancement of technology that's placed in the hands of the public, it is both cunning and helpful. It's cunning because present day man has become dependent upon it, thus he is no longer self reliant. And a dependent man has even less freedom, which equates to subjection. He's more easily controlled. Helpful because, simply, anything that makes your life easier is helpful... right? The thing about whether something is cunning or not isn't at all up to orchestrator. In order for someone to be cunning there has to be someone gullible enough to get swept away in the scheme.

lol.. ya.. wif global warming as it's assistance.. sure will be worse!!


I seriously think that global warming is a myth, and even if it isn't fossil fuels are going to stop around 2020 if we keep going with this demand. So sooner or later we will need the benefits of technology to help us. We will use solar energy or hydrogen instead of fossil fuels which cavemen found.

The western world is becoming more nicer. We dont call people Zipperheads or Japs anymore.

The rest of the world slowly more nicer due to the West.


Ignorant. Don't even post anymore.
The world can't be described by nicer or kinder, and cerainly it can't be jugded by labels like Zipperheads. Calling Japanese Japs isn't even an insult, it's just a casual form of Japanese.
As for the west, it's ironic that the West have taken advantage of the Eastern countries such as Japan, Korea (both) and China, through forced trade, unjust treaties and extrateritorialty laws.
If anything, the West has polarized the world more than any other alliance. For example, the current Iraq war, the general consensus of the Iraqi people, is that they see US marines as invaders, not allies. Now look at the colonies that Western countries have left, Vietnam was a French colony, under French rule, the people did not have independence and no doubt there is dissent. The Vietnam war only occurred because the West refused to respect Vietnamese independence even when Ho Chi Minh held an election. And for those who think Ho Chi Ming is a communist, thats bullshit, if you lok at his policies and beliefs, he is a nationalist who wanted indepence for the people.
The West had it's chances to consolidate friendship, but because of ambition, suspicion and greed, they did the opposite.
The rest of the world is not "nicer" due to the west. It's "nicer" because internationally, people have learned to put up and deal with eachother in a more understanding way, because otherwise, there will be consequences.

It's all the same really, you can take a life to save another. Or, you can sacrifice a life to spare another. What makes the difference is how you want the result to be. In effect, your enimity may be another's humble servant. Cunning isn't about gullible, it's about the abuse of trust, if you cunningly decieve sm1's trust, then you take advantage of what is held sacred at the heart of humanity- trust.

Global warming is just a new way of making money - or even if it isn't, when is it going to warm us up here in Canada, freezing my ass off up here!


If your in Canada, all you're going to get from Global Warming is floods and rising sea levels because you ice caps will melt at a more rapid pace than average.
