This also expands to my thinking (and that of others I've engaged with) that tech (by itself) will not get us free. It is definitely just a tool. But tools, in this landscape, when wielded by the wrong person who can also easily convince others to do things that fuel/fund/support bad things, need to be used ALWAYS in favor of the people and not institutions that exist to extract from us.
