“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
