Reminds me a bit of agronomy. I see it more as a science than a
technology - the science of freeing people. The problem is of course
that we have no idea what such a technology would be at present. A
great deal of philosophy, psychology and sociology would likely be
involved, perhaps also economics. But at present we only have a few
scattered ideas about what it would be, and a few tools for it. Hmm,
we better get working on inventing it! :-)
