Almost all you need to know about History.

Since the rise of European power
almost all science ((unlike philosophy
a pastime of the élite), therefore
almost all technology, has divided
humans more and more
into very rich and very poor,

and into Nation States, which,
having defined themselves by war,
now destructively cohere
by defending their very rich, their powerful
from the 'terrorism' that the poor
have always suffered and always will endure,
and by ever-greater surveillance
of their increasingly-separated citizens.

Technology has turned billions
of animals to suffering food-machines,
has chopped down most of the world's forests,
churned 'fertile' land to sterile monocultures
which end up barren from producing
cheap and tasteless food for processing
to keep the poor - and animals -
alive, but un-alert, productive.
Technology is as evil as
science is reductive.
