There are several issues in today's computing.

If the information and communications technology (ICT) industry was purposefully following a harmful agenda, these would probably be their design principles:

  • disregard for life
  • disregard for the chips
  • more is better
  • assume limitless resources
  • keep it controlled
  • outsource the problem
  • amplify ignorance
  • obfuscate everything
  • destroy communities
  • achieve monopoly

While the industry is rarely discussed in this way, there are increasingly well-documented issues in the dominant computational cultural paradigm which all together help better explain how such a harmful agenda can emerge explicitly or implicitly.
