The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race. They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in "advanced" countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The continued development of technology will worsen the situation. It will certainly subject human beings to greater indignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it will probably lead to greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and it may lead to increased physical suffering even in "advanced" countries.


  • Ugh

    By Aanarky
    Long winded justification of rejecting modern society. Interesting, insightful for the first 80-ish paragraphs, but sort of loses its novelty at that point. Fails to really address the emotional and spiritual elements of being — and looks at humanity through a fractured lens.
  • The work itself is very interesting, this edition is terrible.

    Tons of misspellings and misprints. Who in the heck edited this?

    By ADoPeprikos
    Genius. Intellectual. A brilliant FACTUAL account of what society has become. A few minor details that need to be corrected. Otherwise a brilliant piece of literature.

    I know it was written by an infamous serial killer but this book is a conversation starter. Makes you wonder about our society today.
