Humanity 2.0 is less about the power of new technologies than a state of mind in which we see our lives fulfilled in such things.
“…empathy often leads people astray. It influences people to care more about cute victims than ugly victims. It leads to nepotism. It subverts justice; juries give lighter sentences to defendants that show sadness. It leads us to react to shocking incidents, like a hurricane, but not longstanding conditions, like global hunger or preventable diseases.”
It’s the rare person who can turn off their fantasies at the suggestion of a therapist or clergymen.
“It’s tough, expensive, time-consuming work to change culture. But it’s something the theater can do, maybe even better than judges.”
“A critical aspect of self-awareness is the ability to recognize and temper one’s emotions.”
” It could be that straight women’s interest in casual sex is more conditional and specific than can be fulfilled by an iPhone app.”

“… culturally, we tend to think in terms of black-and-white, not shades of gray — and that’s especially true when it comes to the subject of sex.”
From the page: The free flow of information and communications enabled by new technologies — as protest movements in the Middle East and a wave of serious leaks over the last year have demonstrated — is a uniquely potent weapon in challenging entrenched government power and other powerful factions.
According to the Allergy and Environmental Health Association, both liquid and dryer sheet fabric softeners are “the most toxic products produced for daily household use.”
From the page: Today’s Christians are trying to apply 1st Century dogma to 21st Century problems. The truth is that the writers of the Bible, and especially the writers of the New Testament, had no thought about people living 2,000 years later, anymore than you are thinking about your decedent’s 50-generations from now.
“A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.”
