Well, I don’t know situation in your country, but regarding medicine here in Czech we have nothing to be ashamed for. Maybe it’s not the best of the best, but cost and availability is much better comparing to US (don’t know the exact situation in Germany). There is even robotic proton blade available to treat tumors in Czech.
Technologies? From what I see in “west” technologies are bringing some kind of comfort to their lives, but on the other side is also causing negative effects like depersonalization in both work and civil life.
