This essay was written a while back and it is a glimpse into a world with different values from our current social media driven lives. Take time to read it today and wonder if we have lost something essentially human in finding our way to a life that cannot be without a computer. Take time to read the comments and his response. This essay brought us to question some of what we take as self evident in our lives today,

“I do not admire the computer manufacturers a great deal more than I admire the energy industries. I have seen their advertisements. attempting to seduce struggling or failing farmers into the belief that they can solve their problems by buying yet another piece of expensive equipment. I am familiar with their propaganda campaigns that have put computers into public schools in need of books. That computers are expected to become as common as TV sets in “the future” does not impress me or matter to me. I do not own a TV set. I do not see that computers are bringing us one step nearer to anything that does matter to me: peace, economic justice, ecological health, political honesty, family and community stability, good work.”
