NAIVE

It was naive of the 19th century optimists
to expect paradise from technology –
and it's equally naive of the 20th century pessimists
to make technology the scapegoat
for such old shortcomings as man's blindness,
cruelty, immaturity, greed and sinful pride.
Peter Drucker

Die Optimisten des 19. Jahrhunderts waren so naiv,
von der Technik das Paradies zu erwarten –
es ist genau so naiv von den Pessimisten des 20. Jahrhunderts,
die Technik zum Sündenbock für so alte Unzulänglichkeiten zu machen
wie menschliche Blindheit, Grausamkeit, Unreife, Habgier und Arroganz.
Peter Drucker
