It is sinful in the sense of being without dialogue, rather than in the technical sense of being in violation of rules and laws. Technology without dialogue generates personal frustrations which occasion violence. Those frustrations can not be creatively channeled by technological guides such as rules, laws, and morality. Emotional problems which are occasioned by the absence of dialogue are not transcended or resolved through technological means. The absence of affection can not be compensated for by any excess of sophistication, knowledge, resources consumption, or technological developments. The problems generated by imbalance can not be solved by intensifying the imbalance. The problems generated by technological domination can not be solved by intensification of the technocratic society. It is not helpful to decide relative importances of elements in a balance. The absence of any element of a balanced life undermines the integrity of the life. An excess of any element of a balanced life undermines the integrity of the life. Elements of life which may play dominant or negligible roles must be kept in balance through dialogue which reveals whenever they are getting out of balance. Openness and honesty permit feelings and emotions to reveal a lack of balance, and motivate wise people to move towards balance in response to needs revealed through dialogue. Technology without love tends to undermine emotional and affective openness and honesty, and so undermines the possibility of recognition of the problems generated by technology without love. Technology without love is a disease which tends to block efforts to cure the disease. Technology without love is rooted in technology education without love. Children and adolescents are taught to approach human problems as technical problems--- without concern for whether or not dialogue will be promoted or inhibited. They are taught that the improvement of the human race is a technological task in which dialogue is unimportant. Thus they become sinful technocrats who tend to promote violence even in their tragic efforts to control violence. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
