Beware Bits and Bytes Can Also Bite: Creative, Critical, Independent, Vigilant and Informed Thinking Required...

In this Techie, Gadget Man Age we should dare not allow ourselves to be lured into deep intellectual, moral and spiritual slumber; but to think creatively, independently, and profoundly. For awareness, vigilance and the logic of what is right or wrong can neither  be entrusted to those that profit hugely from professional arrogance, extraordinary power and greed owning, controlling, monopolising and running our global data networks, institutions and our universal repository of knowledge and skill— even our daily lives; nor their politicians and hordes of their institutional lobby  and ‘trumpet' men. Nor should we dare not be fixated blind by the mind-numbing data that their monopoly-programmed machines churn. Finally, nor should humans fear or be ensnared by the creepy ones who harbour ’they-are-god’ or have the anointed hand-of-god delusions. For in this cut-throat heartless mr. moneybags world, there is always danger and temptation. Hence, we should avoid getting carried away by the bigoted, pompous ‘Prestigious' Mob or the Data Goliaths' Big Brother Trumpet Orchestra… 

Let us be inspired, warned and warmed by Lord Byron’s  'Don Juan’ :

"Great Galileo was debarred the sun,   Because he fixed it, and to stop his talking     How earth could round the solar orbit run,       Found his own legs embargoed from mere walking.     The man was well nigh dead, ere men begun      To think his skull had not some need of caulking,     But now it seems he's right, his notion just,     No doubt a consolation to his dust.     Pythagoras, Locke, Socrates—but pages        Might be filled up, as vainly as before,    With the sad usage of all sorts of sages,        Who in his lifetime each was deemed a bore.     The loftiest minds outrun their tardy ages;       This they must bear with and perhaps much more.     The wise man's sure when he no more can share it, he Will have a firm post-obit* on posterity.” —jreyes

*(note: abbreviation of ‘obituary')
