Comment: As tech advances, are we at the mercy of extremism (Score 1) 244

I've noticed a trend that as technology advances, the ability for a single person (or small group) to wreak havoc grows larger and larger. 9/11 taught us that a mere dozen motivated crazy people can kill over 3000. Nuclear technology falling into the wrong hands could endanger many times more. Now imagine a similar scenario in the far future, with virtually unlimited computing power and advanced technology such as the power to fab any weapon or create any pathogen. A single madman may be able to cause death or destruction on a national or even global scale. What options are there for preventing this?

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them WHAT to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity. -- Gen. George S. Patton, Jr.
