TMR 186 : David Greenockle : Homo Technologicus and the Love of Servitude

DavidGreenockle "...we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy, who have always existed and presumably will always exist, to get people to love their servitude."—Aldous Huxley

We are joined by the pastor and teacher David Greenockle for a discussion on the media-ecological effects of modern communication technology and what these trends might mean for the future of human experience as we are enticed yet further into the "brave new world" of a computer-enhanced vision of Utopia.

"David Greenockle Jr. is a pastor, teacher and lecturer whose desire is to see people become truly awakened to the world around them. He holds Master’s Degrees in Education (Gratz College, Philadelphia) and Comparative Religion and Hebrew (Hebrew University, Israel). His academic and professional experience enable him to cast new light upon social issues from a biblical perspective. He is passionate in using the humanities to better understand the human condition in modern times and to aid people in restoring their true humanity in a world of commerce and distraction. David lives in the North-East of the United States with his wife and two daughters."
