Modern Luddites are wrong and evil. The "good old days" had an infant mortality rate of 500/1000, and half the Moms died in childbirth. People worked more hours just for food and suffered more pain. There was more rape and more violence. Nature is the enemy. Nature wants us dead at twenty-three years old. Nature wants us HIV+. Nature wants spinal meningitis. Electric lights and computers are good. Just plain good, no qualifier on that. I won't start the next sentence with "but." I won't take it back. Just plain good.
