Luddites believe that the essence of humanity
is slowly being lost because of technology
Mankind evolved for a different time
- during most of human evolution
we were hunter gatherer
s, and we grew to depend on that lifestyle for our mental health
. That lifestyle provides lots of socialization and lots of exercise. We adapted to living in nature.
We still have stress, but it's different.
We weren't made for what we are now.
The name of this belief name from Nedd Ludd
, who tried to start a peasant revolt
in the 19th Century
by burning down factories. He was eventually hanged.
