When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty. (Thomas Jefferson)
“You must consider the whole part played by electricity in Nature, …to the effect that human beings cannot go on developing in the same way in an atmosphere permeated on all sides by electric currents and radiations. It has an influence on the whole development of man. This is quite true; man’s inner life will become different if these things are carried as far as is now intended. It makes a difference whether you simply supply a certain district with steam-engines or electrify the railway lines. Steam works more consciously, whereas electricity has an appallingly unconscious influence; people simply do not know where certain things are coming from. Without a doubt there is a trend of evolution in the following direction. Consider how electricity is now being used above the earth as radiant and as conducted electricity, to carry the news as quickly as possible from one place to another. This life of men in the midst of electricity, notably radiant electricity, will presently affect them in such a way that they will no longer be able to understand the news which the receive so rapidly. The effect is to damp down their intelligence. Such effects are already to be seen today. Even today you can notice how people understand the things that come to them with far greater difficulty than they did a few decades ago. (Rudolf Steiner)(1924)
The price of technological progress: Human experimentation. It may be observed that there is no way to put an end to development and implementation of high-tech in our society. Therefore it is of great importance to keep oneself as informed as possible in the area of new scientific developments. This is especially true when it comes to mind & brain related technologies and advanced military warfare methods. He will continue to be an unwanted part of research and development and a constantly returning issue. (Gina Rydland)
"If God is within each man, then the enemy of man is any top-heavy system claiming a monopoly on truth and dispensing it downward. Why eventually will laws be necessary at all? I foresee a godly anarchy. No authority here on earth will have to
tell any man what to do, or even educate him; the Logos will do that - link him up. A truly egalitarian society should result. (Philip K. Dick) "
