Quick question, is this sayable, can you use "axiomatically" like this:

Conventional wisdom has us thinking that technological, social and scientific progress is axiomatically a good thing, but is it really ?


For comparison, the initial sentence I wrote was:

Conventional wisdom has us thinking that technological, social and scientific progress is necessarily only a good thing, but is it really ?

Yes, that's exactly how the word should be used.
