during this provocative paintings, Mander demanding situations the utopian promise of technological society and tracks its devastating effect on local cultures around the world. The Western world’s lack of a feeling of the sacred within the wildlife, he says, has led us towards international environmental catastrophe and social disorder—and worse lies forward. but types for restoring our dating with the Earth exist within the cultures of local peoples, whose values and abilities have enabled them to outlive centuries of invasion and exploitation.
Far from growing paradise in the world, expertise has as an alternative produced an unsustainable contest for assets. Mander surveys the main applied sciences shaping the “new international order”—computers, telecommunications, house exploration, genetic engineering, robotics, and the company itself—and warns that they're merging right into a international mega-technology, with dire environmental and political results.
