The fourth industrial revolution and the digital revolution have changed our daily lives by radically redesigning the world we inhabit and offering unprecedented opportunities for development, knowledge and leisure. However, said revolutions have also provided a breeding ground for questionable interests, conflicts and growing forms of control and despotism, thereby causing increasing technophobia in the fields of communication and work.
The books Contrordine compagni. Manuale di resistenza alla tecno fobia per la riscossa del lavoro e dell’Italia (Rizzoli) by Marco Bentivogli and Chiudete Internet. Una modesta proposta (Marsilio) by Christian Rocca remind us that our society cannot do without competence and experience when trying to stop civil degradation and defeat demagoguery, especially in the face of technological innovation.
