: I was born in Huddersfield [Odinsfield] home of the luddites along with Halifax Yorkshire, listening to the reasons for the luddite rebellion from my father, CREATIVITY thats what it was all about, mass production took away the creative cottage industries and made slaves or robots out of humans, taking away the most precious of human endeavours creative thought which gave meaning to human existence not the religous
crap which turned off peoples minds leaving them zombies for so long,
with the advent of the next millenium perhaps we can get back to that
creative endeavour called thought and not remain slaves or robots to a
supernatural being , [just a thought] Patricia Aitken nee woodworth.

Can you explain what it uncreative about a modern piece of tech like a computer, car, submarine, airplane, moulded plastic goodies and gooness know else when compared to home-weaved garments and home-carpented chairs?

I think you may be talking about 'seeing a job through' from bits of wood to finished item all by yourself.

The poeple who work on the above items have to conceive, design then actually make them. Or do you mean those people who are machine operators without any conception about what they are enabled to do by virtue of the machine and process designed by others?
