This is probably going to seem stupid to some, but it’s a general question that should be thought about on the basis of the question, not the circumstances for asking it.
I was offered a job as a web developer even though I have zero experience in the field. The bossman knows this and hooked me up with some employees to point me to resources to learn in time before the job actually opened up.
This will probably feel like a train collision to the face for a lot of people so take a deep breath.
I don’t like where technology is going. At all. I think it would have been better to have not discovered it but here we are. Now I’m not Ted Kaczynski, folks. Although he had the exact same line of thought, I think people are generally good if not sometimes daft, so I’m not going to go terrorize the populace for it. Other men great and small despise technology too.
Simply put it’s the model of technology that I believe is the reason for the push toward a Utopian society, which is hugely immoral and dehumanizing. A documentary called “The Net” by Dammbeck can give my foundations of my point here. Having a society based on machinist, atomist philosophy is flawed because that current model of tech is flawed at a fundamental level.
I do believe there is a desperate need for some reform in sacred ideology and am currently trying to pull together ancient Egyptian resources and old Christian resources, along with general history. Obviously this would take a lot of time to properly form a coherent thought about anything constructive.
Simply put this job offer is all I really have going for me as far as independence goes, but my heart and passion lies in theology, philosophy, and contextual history, which will not get me a job in the near future if at all.
Please try to understand where I’m coming from. I’m too hung up on it and can’t make up my mind.
