I point to this Article by Karim… it sites Ellul’s Myths and deepens their meaning. The Information based society is coming to a head. Progress without direction, the myth of Technological progress and Tech Spiritualism. I’ve literally heard people say that Google is making a god.
All of those “smart” people you sited like Elon Musk are mainly just snake oil salesmen trying to increase the value of the shares they have in companies they are stockholders in. Everything that Kurzweil and Musk talk about and the cyber utopia that they are championing are literally the same thing as what the Churches have been preaching for thousands of years with a different spin.
Same shit, different toilet paper.
You want a smart-transport? buy a Donkey. It’s even eco-friendly.
