We cannot draw "final conclusion".
I do agree with this, as we never know as such, and should doubt all
But we can, in the frame of some theory, draw locally "final" and

instrumentalism, and to techniques without conscience (and human shit
happens, in those case).
That leads also to cutting the budget for fundamental research, which
is already not big ...
