The view that science and technology will likely cause more harm than good
Some critics of transhumanism assert that more powerful technology is likely to cause:
* [[Dark green|Damage to the world ]] (for example, via environmental stress)
* Damage to social well-being (for example, via technological unemployment, or increased financial inequality)
* The outbreak of dangerous new diseases (for example, via problems with genetic manipulation)
* [[Post privacy|Loss of privacy], and greater manipulation of people [[Fascist transhumanism|by government ] [[Oligarchic transhumanism|and/or corporations ]](via increased surveillance and big data analytics).
Taking this view to an extreme, these critics point to the possibility of technologies inducing [[existential risks]].
