Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
in the first place destructive (of others) and in the second place self-destructive.  When enough self-destruction has occurred, technological development will cease.  

Our real task is to persuade people to give up the technological addiction ahead of the descent into that level of self-destruction.  

But recovery from addiction is a spiritual process.  

If humans remain the center of human concern, recovery is not possible, since in that mindset arguments against the convenience of exploitation cannot be countered.  

If, contrariwise, humans can devote themselves to non-human-centered, life affirming goals and processes, the doorway to recovery will stand wide open.  

The Fates are kind.
