Augments, straw-men and techno-optimism
(05-16-2015, 09:50 AM)JohnnyYesterday Wrote: The Ghost in the Shell universe is nuanced in this manner.

It presents potential health problems such as cyberbrain sclerosis, privacy and other rights-violations, abuse by criminals to do some very bad things, technology corporations greed-fueled machinations, corrupt politicians, tech-mediated distortion of the truth for bad and pragmatic-good, persistent social inequality, and so on alongside the many, many benefits. It has quite a lot of verisimilitude.

It should be noted that OA has various failures and bad things happening, often on a constant ongoing basis given how big it is. But for the most part people seem to like to focus on the successes and the good stuff.
