Technology brings advances to every area of our lives, from medical, to food production, to manufacturing, to communication, to entertainment. Even to procreation!
Technophobia prevents some people from enjoying those benefits but, even for them, there is a solution. If you're afraid of being exploited the best defence is to buy a roll of aluminium foil (the same stuff we all use in our kitchens) and construct a hat from it. Wear it at all times. This will prevent your government from reading your subversive thoughts or from beaming their propaganda directly to your cerebellum.
