BrewNSpew Cafe – October 15, 2018


“Technology is an instrument and a weapon because it benefits those who know best how to use it and how to be used by it. The bourgeoisie have used machines and the ‘scientific’ organisation of work against the proletariat. No revolt against domination can really represent the general interest unless it turns itself into a rebellion against technology, a Luddite revolt”. – Miguel Amorós, Where Are We Now?

Word of the week – Luddite (noun) –  a person who is opposed to increased industrialization or new technology. Synonyms – a broken record, anorak, bore

no fuddy-duddy am I

no kill-joy, Luddite or has-been

not a saddo in don’t know when

spoil-sport or a fossil you say

best you keep your talk at bay

so you think I’m a boring drip

well, just button your lip

and best you listen-up

methinks I have a cyberphobia

yeh, my version of frumpy utopia
