BioLuddism

BioLuddism is the opposition to technologies, either singularly, or in general.

About

Bioluddites who do not argue up front that technology is intrinsically bad believe that it will inevitably be used by the elite and powerful to subjugate the less powerful and should therefore be abandoned. Some Bioluddites hold that medicine makes people sick and should therefore be eliminated.[1]

Bioluddites argue against technologies such as genetic engineering on the basis that they are “playing God” or are going against the “Natural Order.”[1]

Bioluddism & Conspiracy theories

Bioluddism can be said to be the basis for many conspiracy theories. Fear of technology being used by "powerful elites" to subjugate the general populace as an example.
