Your post makes more sense than all the others added together.
We have a lot of people, generally younger than 40, who have no perspective on history and how far we've come. And those under 25 have even less. I tend to blame the schools for not teaching history properly, but the blame may lie with our culture in general. There's too much focus on "me" and not enough focus on "thee".
I don't know were the idea came from that our goal should be utopia, because we're never going to get there. Humans are just not evolved enough to handle a utopia. We probably never will be.
Techies should just do what they're good at and enjoy doing. Leave the rest up to those with a broader education. I don't want any group of specialists trying to run the world.
