Looking at this quotation again, it’s pretty simple:
“…easy overgeneralisations make for easy criticisms, and today we need to be asking tougher questions and confronting more conflicted choices about these new technologies.”
But it’s so widely true. Personally, it crystallises something that’s been pulling at me for a long time: I need to be better researched.
Militating against that are the catholic interests and divided loyalties I don’t want to give up. My solace is that I’m probably going to live so long that maybe I can afford to postpone political, critical, theoretical maturity for a while.
