Mostly business people are honest in their dealings. They work honestly with their customers. Most of the machinery manufacturers and suppliers have a tendency to make and sell bigger and bigger machines. Naturally bigger machine has bigger profit. So everybody is tempted to sell bigger machines and bigger plants. They take satisfaction that they are working honestly. They are under the impression that they are participating or contributing to the process of development of society as a whole.
But they do not consider effect of the big machines and big plants on the society.
Each machine or a plant has a exploitative capacity. So bigger machines and bigger plants create centralized production, accumulate wealth in a handful of people, create mass scale unemployment, hunger and starvation. So big machines invariably create mass scale exploitation.
The ultimate result of so called industrialization is that 4 billion people out of the 7 billion people of the world have been thrown in to miseries and they have become victim of poverty, unemployment, hunger, starvation, malnutritions, diseases and they are bound to die in this situation. On the contrary 2 billion more people are likely to be thrown into poverty, unemployment, hunger, starvation, malnutritions, diseases etc only because of centralized industries. So Mahatma Gandhi has forecasted that industrialization in India is going to be a curse to the humanity because it will invariably result into automatic killing of entire population except 10 millions will be survived.
So this process of industrialization is being accelerated by machinery manufacturers and traders. Tragedy is that those who manufacture big machines and big plants, innocently believe that they are encouraging development process of the society. In fact their development invariably results into destruction of masses.
So every engineer, every manufacturer, every industrialist, every trader should ponder over and search inside their heart what they are doing and what will be the effect of their technology on the society.
So we should discriminate between TECHNOLOGY FOR MASS EXPLOITATION and TECHNOLOGY FOR LIFE . All big machines, big machinery, big plants is the Technology for Mass Exploitation which will ultimately result in indirect killing of entire humanity. So it is curse.
On the other hand, very small machines, very small plants manageable by 3 to 4 person of family without employing anybody from outside will result in sustaining family; as such small family size plant has no exploitative capacity. So their must be millions and billions of such family enterprises which can work it independently, produce locally and consume locally without wastage of transport.
This is TECHNOLOGY FOR LIFE. This is the right way of peaceful living in the world. So I appeal to every engineer, every machinery manufacturer, plant suppliers etc etc to think over whether their technology is for mass exploitation or their technology is for life. If you feel that your technology is for mass exploitation, then you should try to avoid it, discard it and to switch over to Technology for Life which will create happy society.
I have thought very deeply that you can earn more money by propagating technology for life. Making money simply by big big machines is wrong idea, sinful idea and it will lead to the world war and destruction of humanity.
