Technological dualism is the term used to describe the good and bad outcomes of the application of technology in society. There are two approaches to correcting the negative outcomes: the technological fix and social engineering. The technological fix uses technology to solve the problem; social engineering uses social planning, usually applied by political institutions, to solve the problem.
