The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for
the human race.They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those
of us who live in “advanced” countries, but they have destabilized
society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to
indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in theThird
World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on
the natural world.The continued development of technology will worsen
the situation. It will certainly subject human beings to greater indignities
and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it will probably lead to
greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and it may lead to
increased physical suffering even in “advanced” countries.

The X were probably not any more destructive than other invaders of
ancient times, but writers who idealized Rome often blamed them for its

se today) was coined in 1794 by Henri Grégoire, bishop of Blois, to

important in colouring the perception of the X from later Late Antiquity,
popularizing the pre-existing idea that they were a barbaric group with a

London Cockneys. It's a phrase which I heard many years ago and so fell in love
with, I wanted to use it, the title of the book. But the phrase itself I did not make
up.The phrase "as queer as a XY" is good old East London slang and it didn't
