i read it somewhere

the brazilian ruben alves writes:

technology creates a false man, a man who leans how to find happiness in what is given to him by the system. his soul is created as the image of what he can have.

alves -- and others who share his point of view -- is more interested in men
as bearers of freedom and dignity than as consumers of goods.

(from alves' "a theology of human hope" (1969), quoted in john macquarrie, paths of spirituality (morehouse, 1993), a wonderful book in its own right and one i heartily recommend)
