Technology holds the potential for world peace, prosperity and a perfect utopian society. But the promise of progress is turns out to be a double-dealing deception threatening the future of all humanity. The betrayal of trust by mad scientists has created enormous obstacles to real scientific progress and caused some of the most menacing problems of society. If this is no accident and they really are the paragons of intellectual perfection that they claim to be, then we must conclude that their deeds are deliberate acts of treachery in a diabolical plot to destroy the world.
Such a scenario is not hard to believe. Scientists by nature are cold calculating nerds, physically challenged underdogs bullied and traumatized in their youth, and frustrated by repressed emotions due to their inability to cultivate interpersonal relationships. For years they channeled the raging energy into their scientific careers and now they finally have the power to pay society back.
Despite their weaknesses scientists are highly respected professionals with sophisticated intellects, so everyone else feels compelled to follow their advice. But scientists are just like the rest of us. They know that it doesn't matter morally if they kill us all because we'll all be dead so no one will be around to care anyway.
