Philosophy Hijacked by ‘Age of Competition’

“…the increase of human power over nature has become completely automatic, uncontrollable and blind, because it everywhere exceeds the conscious will of individual. And , this is, quite simply, the inevitable result of competition. In which sense, contrary to the philosophy of Enlightenment, which aimed at emancipation and human happiness, technology is well and truly a process without purpose, devoid of any objectives:ultimately, nobody knows any longer the direction in which the world is moving, because it is automatically governed by competition and in no sense directed by conscious will of men collectively united behind a project…”
