The crises of values and the sake of man: technology and pragmatism
Value > The crises of values and the sake of man
Man interacts with creativity, intelligence, knowledge and makes himself helpful for the common good with self-domination; sacrifice and solidarity protect from models that confuse man in the mass and disavow his initiative and freedom.
Redemption saves and unites men in responsibility, for the neighbor and for creation, entrusted to their active commitment so that the accomplished work is fruitful.
In that, technology can help progress, but sometimes it subtracts employment or makes man servant by taking away satisfaction, creativity and responsibility, trying to ridicule any ethical criticism as excessive and unreal.
The desire for new freedoms of action puts at risk the responsible balance among natural constraints on material things, which fruits are available only with wise work for sustenance, without excluding, privileging, nor degrading anything and anyone.
Responsible freedom is expressed by an ethical morality, which must be formed in the industrious and intelligent cooperation to participate of God’s gift.
