Talk seems great on surface but her statements sort of contradict here and there. On one hand she is asking not to depend on technology but then saying we have great inventiveness and we should use it. What we will build with that inventiveness if not technology? But I agree that efficiency can't work in each situation and we need friends in tough times.
