Ivan Illich Quotes: Certain Tools Are Destructive No Matter

Certain Tools Are Destructive No Matter Who Owns Them, Whether It Be The Mafia, Stockholders, A Foreign Company, The State,
or Even A Workers' Commune. Networks Of Multilane Highways, Long. Range, Wide-band-width Transmitters, Strip Mines, Or
compulsory School Systems Are Such Tools. Destructive Tools Must Inevitably Increase Regimentation, Dependence,
exploitation, Or Impotence, And Rob Not Only The Rich But Also The Poor Of Conviviality, Which Is The Primary Treasure In Many
so-called "underdeveloped" Areas.
