Motivation

The increasing role of technology in our social life is a more and more inevitable factor. However, the rapidly developing sector is facing new problems. The frustration that many of us face with the latest model, version, or upgrade of software, hardware, or services is increasingly common. The demand for further education alongside the development of this sector is a prerequisite for success. Technology has helped transform our civilization, but what sacrifices must be made? What are the disadvantages of this technological leap compared to the benefits and the resources we can afford for this period?

The most numerous social group in a society based on capital, the lower class, is forced to bear the burden of this transition without using any additional financial incentives, which would increase distinctions of social classes. That and the increased role of technologies in disciplinary methods for control would lead to a new Postmodern Society described by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari.

Is restricting knowledge and flooding media channels with disinformation and fiction a new, democratized method for censorship?
