Cult of Information A Neo-Luddite Treatise Theodore Roszak

the 60’son the left in the US had two interesting reactions to the modernizations going on than; a panoply of ground-level in the field experiments in living with/in and bricolaging what was at hand, pushing engineering/tinkering beyond market and military applications/interests, and a more merely academic (men of letters) and Romantic attempt to look/live backwards to dwell in some imagined past states of Wisdom/Harmony.  Of course we recognize such trends here with us today as well and I hope there are others out there who are willing to join in the experimental side and leave the speculative archeology behind.
