->''"It’s not any individual tool that’s a problem--it’s that the tools are all part of a deeply hierarchical system. And the people at the top of that system end up thinking they inherently deserve to be there, that [[WeAreNotReady they’re better than the rest of us.]]''

->''"'''WHY DO WE NOT HAVE HOVER TRAINS HERE IN THE US?''' We have Amtrak trains that slow to four miles per hour when the engineer sees a particularly bendy piece of track coming up...By the way, that video includes what is arguably the dumbest YouTube comment ever, which is a bold statement, but not so bold when you read it: ''"You don't want maglev in the u.s. few of my friends have been on long distance train journeys in the states and all said the people and views were amazing, wouldn't see much travelling at maglev speeds and wouldn't have as much time to meet new people,, why ruin it?"'' Indeed. Why ruin a 27-hour train ride?"''

->''"Out of a misguided reaction to the symbiotic relationship between religious fundamentalism and corporate hegemons, it's all the rage for young geeks to run around bigging up 'Science' as a substitute religion...Yet, those same hegemons control the application of science in its near-totality, and are using it to help establish broad-spectrum dominance that will be beyond all challenge. The same figures who are waved around like Medieval saints by gullible geeks are in fact all [[TheQuisling bought-and-sold-and-paid-for whores]] for the corporate elite."''

->''"Speaking broadly, the [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Reagan]]-[[UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher Thatcher]] era was the end of an era of conservatism because they and their half-rate successors were the last of the conservative technocrats. Modern conservatism is profoundly non-technocratic, a viewpoint best exemplified in American conservatism inasmuch as its orthodoxy includes the rejection of large swaths of science. Technocracy depends on the fetishization of automation. One of the first things to be discovered in the digital era was that the embrace of technology posed massive challenges to the orthodox views of humanity. Just as the Enlightenment provided a rationalist revolution, the Singularity, debased a concept as that is, provides a post-humanist revolution against rationalism. Accordingly, the technocratic conservative withered and died save for a handful of [[CrazySurvivalist Redneckbeards.]]"''

->''"To put it mildly, I’m not a big fan of Vani Hari, who has achieved Internet notoriety as a highly misguided “food activist” better known as [[SexSells The Food Babe]]. As The Food Babe, Hari has improbably become a minor celebrity by attacking food companies over various ingredients their products and, unfortunately, seems poised for more. Indeed, given how media and social media-savvy she has become, it’s not inconceivable that she could become the [[Series/TheDoctorOzShow Dr. Oz]] of food. The problem with that, of course, is that what she pushes is not good information but rather misinformations...such as her claim that microwave ovens somehow destroy the nutrient content of food irretrievably and her most risible claim of all, namely that ''“there is just no acceptable level of any chemical to ingest, ever.”'' [[CriticalResearchFailure Given that food is made of chemicals]], I wished her good luck surviving living by that particularly dumb adage."''

But the progress of technology has led and is still leading to just such a concentration and centralization of power...ever have so many been manipulated so much by so few."''
