Science vs. Technology
Many people equate science with technology. This is unfortunate, because the
two are not the same. Science is a pure pursuit of knowledge with no agenda,
while technology is applied science with a political and/or commercial agenda.
Therefore, science should lead technology, and not the reverse. Sadly, we live
a world in which technology leads science. This is why politics and commerce
are so prominent, but scientific discoveries are so rare. We need a new
revolution, in which pure science exists for its own sake, and not for the sake
politics and commerce.
