like what am i supposed to argue against here? that technology "in the abstract" can't be used for different purposes? and that some of these things might be desirable?

Right exactly, then what the fuck is your point?

my point is the language you're using is not productive, obfuscates the point that there's nothing more political than technology, and unless you want to have conversations like this for the rest of your time in the left you probably should knock it off
