The existing article was not only short but a bit esoteric and unbalanced. I have remedied those problems and relegated two esoteric terms to the See Also section. Globaleducator 17:48, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
I just realized the Luddites once again being pictured as hardcore anti-modernist techno-enemies. This is just a stupid myth. Yes, they attacked machines, but only to build up pressure against the owners of these machines (in effect, to get better work conditions). The myth of the Luddites just help the Technocrats to legitimate the optimism in technological progress "against all the irrational resistances" or some similar statements. Cf. Volti, Rudi (1988).
