"It is the same with all their machines. Their labour-saving devices multiply drudgery; their aphrodisiacs make them impotent: their amusements bore them: their rapid production of food leaves half of them starving, and their devices for saving time have banished leisure from their country. There will be no radical chang. And as for permanence - consider how quickly all machines are broken and obliterated."
- C.S. Lewis The Pilgrim's Regress
