According to a blog found on RE Factor Tactical, a company founded by veterans which sells tactical products and provides special operations with solutions for unconventional battlefield issues, violence can, and has historically been, the answer to major conflicts. In their blog, they state: “Those who say “violence is never the answer”, most likely never stared death in the face or encountered some of the greatest evil that plagues our society. In reality, violence often solves some of life’s greatest issues”. Thinking back to our World Wars, revolutions and the current conflict in Venezuela… they may actually be right. On today’s episode, we have a conversation about pacifism and violence, and their respective effectiveness in resolving escalated social conflict.
Technological advances have made our lives easier, more efficient and connected in unimaginable ways. Nonetheless, there have been many critics of the evolution of modern technology, and some, such as Franklin Foer, author of “World Without Mind” argues that Silicon Valley will lead us to our doom. On today’s episode, we wanted to take a moment and explore the relationship between humans, technology, choice, privacy, and of course, a tech induced doom.
