When science and technology become addictive fixes which are used in an effort to substitute for honest love which is absent, the consequence is a progressive pattern of personal and communal disintegration. The disintegration progresses first in the non-objective domain which is ignored by science and technology; and so is an invisible process of disintegration from the point of view of scientists and technocrats. The disintegration of the reflexive realm which is not objective, leads through decisions which are not wise to the disintegration which is evident in the objective realm of decay in housing, health, education, business vitality, political integrity, international dialogue, etc. There are no technical manipulations which can substitute honestly for the absence of true love. Too often there is a tendency for technocrats to believe that the dilemmas which they perceive as problems, can be solved through the use of technical manipulations in the manner of addicts and codependents. The dilemmas need to be perceived honestly as non-technical dilemmas which cannot be fixed with technocratic procedures; then honest love may have a chance to respond appropriately to the dilemmas.
