It bugs me that the writers think that, if we give up all this technology, then we’ll all live at peace. Doesn’t 2001 start with the ape men figuring out how to club each other over the head with a soup bone? Technology just gives us bigger soup bones to hit each other over the head with.
It’s a particularly good point because, again, the show is committed to the idea that mankind is flawed.
