Summary
Industrial society is trying to "progress" without bothering to ask whether any sane person would want to live in the world that progress is creating. When every upgrade has more bugs and fewer benefits than the last, and "new" no longer means "improved," it's time to challenge the mythology of progress and go back to what works
