Masters in scientific & technological progress

The development of science and technology without any nourishment of arts and culture could be detrimental to the society and its people. It is human beings who ought to master science and technology as to allow science and technology to lord over human beings is very scary. Intense affection or hatred for 'persons', whom one has never met in his'/'her real life, through the cyberspace is a contemporary example of people being subject to control by' tools of science and technology. Obssession with computer games or social media is another example. Any society which strives to find a balance for the development of its science and technology on one hand and arts and culture on the other would not displace sites of cultural heritage or'/'and approve projects which could endanger precious human lives in the name of ''progress''.
