A technology-driven society is in constant flux, and subject to accelerating change. In that environment, traditions, values, social institutions, and even complete cultures become obsolete at an increasing rate, and lose their value as inter-generational learning tools. More importantly, since traditions, values, and social institutions are critical to human judgment and learning, when technology undermines our institutions, it also threatens our knowledge and beliefs. This article describes the problem with numerous examples, and investigates possible solutions. A dynamic society with flexible and diverse social institutions is suggested as a possible solution. The solution itself requires an extensive technology infrastructure, and fundamental changes to the existing social institutions.
