Is technology a NOP?

NOP = No Operation (effectively does nothing at all!)

A disturbing statistic puts Washington D.C. on par with Uganda!  (The prevalence of the AIDS virus.)  A new report conservatively pegs the infection rate at an estimated 3%! I'm not entirely clear where Silicon Valley is on this map.

Another coincidentally alarming report is that of the Pope apparently not helping matters in Africa! Religious factors do influence population issues in various ways in various parts of the world, but one would hope that religious factors are not at play in D.C. 

As we develop technologically, we hope that technological advancement helps educate and disseminate information faster. Mobile phone usage has dramatically changed communications in developing countries. Africa and the Middle East suffer from significantly  lower penetration of Intenet usage, but it seems that proximity to technology isn't helping D.C. It appears that a different theory is at work here.

Assuming then my postulata as granted, I say, that the power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man. Population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio.  – Malthus 1798, Chapter 1

Are we heading to a Malthusian conflagration before a religious one?
