Bumping this because of something I saw in MST3K - Delta Knights...
>Plot revolves around new technology
>Heroes get the technology, decide its too dangerous and destroy it.
Worst of all, in that case Leonardo Da Vinci, who decided to burn the map to a vault of secret knowledge, still became an inventor inspired by the things he saw there. What was the use in opposing knowledge if you make the same goddamn inventions on your own?!
In that case they decided to destroy the vault and prolong the dark age because they were afraid the forces of evil could use it. One character even pointed out that it would be invaluable in the hands of the good Order, but they went along with the retarded decision anyway! Because apparently being oppressed by swords and manpower is worth it to avoid the risk of someday being oppressed by something else!
Oh, and when the knowledge the "heroes" destroy actually IS dangerous this attitude gets even more retarded. If science has discovered something dangerous, it should be published as a BIG ASS WARNING! Way too often you see scientific minds horrified of their inventions deciding to destroy their notes, which in no way hampers anyone else from making the same discoveries. And if they're going to face the same perils, it would be goddamn helpful to know in advance if what they're doing has the risk of destroying the world. I know writers and moviemakers aren't scientists, but it terrifies me that such retarded attitudes exist in the population at all!
