This chapter offers a review of some of the critics of technology found in major publications. The critiques, regard technology as a worldview that interprets the totality of things as an instrumental complex focused on goals of increasing efficiency. The efficiency is an epochal and cultural "hurry," as Heidegger once wrote, that most obviously infuses the contemporary world with a powerful creative energy. Ellul's explication of the history of technology as a process of reduction of all values to the value of efficiency does not end with a solution. As technology becomes more autonomous, human beings lose the power to control it, and thus end up being controlled by it. Technology effortlessly supports the belief that its makers and users are in control. People shaped by the paradigm of narrow utility and fully driven by the search for the ideal of absolute efficiency will not feel any discomfort about the direction technology has taken.
