I'd be surprised if my top posting really prevented your being
able to understand me, Matthias, :-)  but let me try again, using
different syntax.

Technical people live in the consensual world, not in some
special sanitised world where only bits and bytes are real.

Because technical people live in the same world everyone else
lives in, we must not pretend that social questions are someone
else's problem.

The reason we must not pretend is that psychopaths (those who
have no conscience, and exploit other living creatures  without
hesitation or remorse) would use us for their purposes.  And,
like poleznye duraki / nützliche Idioten, we would obey them
