“A Luddite opposes changes that affect or might affect him or his allies.
Precisely why this isn’t “Ludditeism”. But let;s not quibble with semantics.
Your position is move the level of technology as fast as possible and screw everyone that it impacts, because you’ve already got yours. Such a humanitarian. Mine is simply to phase in change at a less rapid pace, so that people and society have time to adapt.
BTW, I agree with you about Obama. But he’s besides the point. Just so you know that my position is not a “liberal” one, but a conservative one.
