Reason correspondent rages against "neo-Luddite movement"

from the meme-wars dept.
A lengthy commentary by Reason Magazine science correspondent Ronald Bailey ("Rage Against the Machines: Witnessing the birth of the neo-Luddite movement", July 2001) recapitulates his passionately-expressed concerns over what he has called a "global anti-technology movement". Previous diatribes more specifically focused on nanotechnology appeared in February and July of 2001. In this latest piece Bailey concludes: "The hopeful future of humanity freed from disease, disability, hunger, ignorance, poverty, and inequity depends on beating back the forces of neo-Luddite reaction . . . The struggle for that future begins now."
