What would happen if I just kept digging?? Humanity wonders

More often than not, they are designed externally, without sufficient consideration being given to the needs and contexts of those for whom they are intended.

why? because:

we no longer see technology as this magic panacea for the world’s ills.

but also, because:

if you write a story set in a dystopian setting, there’s kind of automatic, built-in drama
