Presence of Fear
While reading Presence of Fear one part that really stuck out to be was in IX when it says, "We had accepted uncritically the belief that technology is only good; that it cannot serve evil as well as good; that it cannot serve our enemies as well as ourselves; that it cannot be used to destroy what is good, including out homelands and our lives." I feel like this tells a lot about how people think about technology and other things that help us it can only be good and not evil. When is says, "cannot serve our enemies as well as ourselves" I feel like that's how Americans think about the the world that USA has a lot and that other people don't have anything but that's not true at all. I also believe that anything that is suppose to be meant for good use can be used for evil situations if you want example just think of Facebook.
