Oscar Wilde said: "The fact is, that civilization requires slaves. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralizing. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends."
But i guess the process on enslaving is reversible. In a way we've became adicted to our tools..
