Responsible use of technology

There is a lot more that I want to say about a society having responsible use and control of technology to protect and benefit it’s members.  However here I just want to point to a current issue on concerns about the use of a massive particle accelerator that is intended to discover the fundamental laws of the universe that were operable at the time of the “Big Bang”.  Some fear that this experimentation will lead to the creation of black holes that will suck the earth into it.  One teenage girl in India actually committed suicide as a result of being traumatized by reports that the new machine can cause the end of the world.

There is also group in the U.S. that is filing a lawsuit to prevent halt the operation of the machine. 

Here is the link to the article —>
