When you watch this video from Corning, an innovator in the technology of glass, you’ll notice that the possibilities depicted expand the application of knowledge and learning. It’s technology at its best, generating tools that advance our concepts and our ideas.
Now instead of these wonderful images, juxtapose this powerful technology with images from the daily news: violence, terrorism, drugs, political and economic disruptions, etc. Imagine these tools applied to these concepts and ideas. The possibilities become more dark, less positive, don’t they.
Technology moves forward inexorably; embracing technology holds great potential for positive change in the world. But technology provides only tools; humans need to provide the Core values and the Leadership to apply these tools in ways that are positive and that lead to sustainable prosperity for individuals, families, and the world.
