Technological Iatrogenesis (TI)

Progress is perhaps largely ... behind us!

Samenvatting

Iatrogenesis is the doctrine that deals with the harmful effects of medical treatment. A substance that, for example, tackles the pathogen may also weaken the body. If it weakens the body and does not address the pathogen sufficiently, it may well be that the resistance of the body itself becomes insufficient precisely because of the treatment, with all conceivable consequences. Our technological world is full of these kinds of dilemmas: if you tackle something, do it firmly, so that you have the maximum chance of success. An important reason that there is no political and scientific interest in technological iatrogenesis (TI) is that it does not yield any money. This makes it clear that economic thinking dominates everything. On the contrary, TI (coincidentally very symbolically a reversal of IT) would dampen the economy. And that is necessary. There is no right-minded person who does not know that infinite growth from finite resources is impossible, and that therefore the economy must be tempered.
