Hank’s optimism about technology is reflected in his work in Camelot where he uses technology to effect many of the lives in Camelot for the better by building roads, schools, and factories for Camelot.

On the other hand Merlin is distrustful of society, not because he believes it to be inherently bad, but because he believes technology to threaten his power. Prior to the arrival of Hank Merlin is very powerful amongst Camelotian society, but once Hank assumes Merlin's role his power diminished. Merlin is moreso jealous of Hank’s rise in Camelotian society, than he is angry about the rise of technology in Camelot.
