Thread Name: rebellion and protest in John Henry
Subject: RE: rebellion and protest in John Henry
robomatic - your link to the Wikipedia on the Luddites contains these lines: " It is a misconception that the Luddites protested against the machinery itself in an attempt to halt the progress of technology."
It all came down to the classic "who owns the means of production."
I know this hasn't a lot to do with this thread but it always bugs me to see the Luddites being characterised as purely anti-technology.
