Doha Debates — Can Technology Unlock World Peace?
Subbu pointed out that technology is fundamentally amoral. “In the hands of good actors it can be used for good. In the hands of bad actors it will be used for bad, as we have seen. So what I ask you to think about is the difference in ethics which we call as ‘means’ and ‘ends.’ Technology is a means to an end. So if you want to talk about peace, if you really want peace, the desire for peace comes from us, we have to start talking about the ends first.”
