Doug Casey on What Happens Next: The Singularity or a New Dark Ages?

• by Doug Casey

Similarly, today, Western civilization seems to be going downhill economically, politically, and culturally. In a lot of ways, the trajectory looks grim.

But at the same time, science and technological developments are compounding. It seems every week there is a fantastic breakthrough.

How do you rationalize these seemingly countervailing trends?

Doug Casey: Technology is clearly advancing in a hyperbolic curve, at least at the rate of Moore's law. That's wonderful.

On the other hand, understanding of ethics and moral behavior hasn't improved at all. As a matter of fact, you could argue that it's gone downhill. That makes for a set of very dangerous possibilities.
