Advances in science have brought us to a point in history where technology rules, and you better not question it. More times than not, we see people relying on technology to make the differentiation between what's real and what's not, or what happened or didn't. The problem comes in determining what to do when technology is wrong, both in terms of accuracy or morally. On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri talk about the "practical" application of technology and its effect on us all.
Topics discussed include prejudging people based on their names, KRS-One's song "Palm & Fist," Gabby Giffords' comments on gun control and Newtown visit, laws that are prejudicial and invasions of privacy, relying on flawed technology to tell us what's real, whether traffic cameras are an invasion of privacy, how thinking has been removed from so many jobs, guidelines versus rules, trading control for employment and more!
