We live in a world where technology is consuming society, ethics, and
our core existence.

.. by way of killing the planet: living systems (rivers, forests), animal & plant species, not as useful to "our existance", but as them-selves.

It is time to take responsibility for the world we are creating. Time to
put humans before business.

Why "humans"? That's so anthropocentric!

Squirrels too! https://wiki.techinc.nl/index.php/Hackers_tribes#Consider_the_Squirrels.21

Time to replace the empty rhetoric of
“building a better world” with a commitment to real action. It is time
to organize, and to hold each other accountable.

How? Read "To Our Friends", by The Incisible Committee

Plus, there is mention of the leading ideology that has lead to this step in the techological development: capitalism / neoliberalism:

The rest of the letter is empty rhetoric...
