When we as a civilization advance in areas like technology, when these changes affect everything while changing nothing, we have to measure what we as a people have gained versus what continues not to be lost but is overlooked. Unseen in a cloud of exhaust from a billionaire’s rocket, he can video chat on his watch as he approaches the threshold of space, but he can’t see a man being beaten to death by cops because they turned the cameras off. The king wears a shiny gold crown and never sees the miner that dies in the darkness.
