Not only me - humanity currently has no way forward, other than a cluster of dead-ends that were sold to us by technology salesmen through the ages, and continue to be sold to us, against all survival logic.
Obviously, THE solution to technology killing us all, hasn't been resolved yet. And we probably won't resolve it in this thread.
But by talking about it, at least we further people's understanding of a very serious meta-problem that humanity is facing. This problem is outlined in the link below.
*Which* technology / technologies are 'killing us all' -- ?
Do you have *any* technical approaches to addressing these technological problems?
I appreciate that you're implicating *capitalism*, but you may want to give a fuller *treatment* of this politics in particular.
I'm not going to watch the video right away. You may want to *describe* what you're indicating by 'meta-problem'.
Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture and contemplation become almost impossible.
Tranlated, this means that if the great majority of humans don't have their lives crushed by monotony (and by a lack of opportunity for contemplation), the tiny elite won't be able to fly over the world attending "climate change" workshops and Balinese yoga workshops. ("contemplation")
Technology is a vote for this, really? And slavery-justification is one of our most important technologies?
Yes, that's a solid critique of the *Democrat*- / liberal-type cultural industry and culture / lifestyle, which uses personal lifestylism as a personal / social 'activity', to stay insular and to allow the status quo capitalist political economy to stay status quo.
I'm not saying that present-day technological culture under capitalism, or even the *avenues* of technology that have been developed and are commonplace, are necessarily the *best* avenues, because existing technology only reflects the consumer culture of *market demand*, and *not* the needs and wants of the entire human population, unfortunately.
 History, Macro Micro -- Precision
Yes, you're correct to indicate that self-awareness / self-actualization is an important task for the individual. I myself would also add 'worldliness' to the list, as I indicate in my 'Worldview' diagram, and also several of my diagrams include 'Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs', including this one:
History, Macro-Micro -- Political (Cognitive) Dissonance
You're taking that quote out-of-context -- here's the whole thing:
The fact is, that civilisation requires slaves. The Greeks were quite right there. Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralising. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends. And when scientific men are no longer called upon to go down to a depressing East End and distribute bad cocoa and worse blankets to starving people, they will have delightful leisure in which to devise wonderful and marvellous things for their own joy and the joy of everyone else. There will be great storages of force for every city, and for every house if required, and this force man will convert into heat, light, or motion, according to his needs. Is this Utopian? A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing. And when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and, seeing a better country, sets sail. Progress is the realisation of Utopias.
