Top Customer Reviews
The book does offer some healthy critiques of technology and its potential for dehumanization (not the language used in the book). Also some of the analysis of institutional structures like education, which is condemned as conditioning only for industrial production have some validity. Politics and even language are indicted as creating a society of consumers who are slaves to addiction or slaves to envy.
Offers a historical perspective on anti-progress arguments that still appear today, but today, the sharp teeth are covered by benign dentures.
