Technophobia causes us to reflect, to stop and ask “what for?” Why are we doing this and could there be negative consequences to our actions. Technophobia is not anti-technology if we are honest no one is really anti-technology that would be a rejection of life itself. But neither does technophobia give the green light to all things technical. An altogether too common position these days is to accept technology as manna from heaven as if just the very use of it will inherently lead us in the right direction. All use is good use. Technophobia does not allow us such an easy conscience.
