Something really annoying about technophobes I have noticed... [View all]

Is that the woo-woos and technophobes ALWAYS conflate a technology with unscrupulous misuses of that technology. One sees this in discussions about nuclear energy ("nuclear weapons are bad, so nuclear energy must be banned!"), and with GMOs ("Monsanto is full of greedy assholes, so GMOs should be banned!!!")
