Personally, I’d make a snide comment when the issue is tossing analog originals that are still viable like, oh say maybe, “don’t bet your ass on high tech.” But Jared Diamond already said what I’m thinking about your suggestions in a much better way.

There is no basis for believing that technology will miraculously stop causing new and unanticipated problems while it is solving the problems that it previously produced.
