Anger is a transient hatred; or at least very like it.
Technology without hatred can be a blessing. Technology with hatred is always a disaster.
I am what you might call abstractly anti-capitalist. For instance, I am suspicious of the old leftists who focus all their hatred on the United States. What about Chinese neo-colonialism? Why are the left silent about that? When I say this, it annoys them, of course. Good!
There are better ways we can transform this virulent hatred - by living our ideals, the Peace Corps, exchange students, teachers, exporting our music, poetry, blue jeans.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
