POLL - WHAT ARE THE 3 BIGGEST THREATS TO WESTERN CIVILISATION?
"The historical Luddites... were largely middle class workers seeing their skills replaced by machinery run by lower class ones which, understandably, they did not like. Pretty much the same applies today - look at the backgrounds of the Plane Stupid people, or Monbiot, let alone Goldsmith or Gore."
The historic ones were fighting to put food on the table. The modern ones are doing it only for status. Nonetheless the historic ones were wrong too. I know of no other descriptive term - certainly they care nothing for the real environment.
