Maybe we can find solace in the fact that is or will soon be infeasible to avoid, so we needn't try to avoid it.
That doesn’t seem like a message of solace to me.
It's the meager solace of the absolution of personal responsibility - there's no way to avoid it, so at least no one can say "why did you allow that to happen to you".
I guess it's similar to how most photos are a means to an end now, rather than the final product. ie satellite imaging or Instagram.
