Adam Thierer on Anti-Tech Grump Evgeny Morozov

Credit: Stian Eikeland / Foter.com / CC BY-NC-SACredit: Stian Eikeland / Foter.com / CC BY-NC-SAEvgeny Morozov’s latest book, To Save Everything, Click Here, follows the same blueprint as his first book, 2011’s The Net Delusion. He takes the over-zealous ramblings of a handful of Internet evangelists, suggests that Pollyannas like them are all around us, and then argues, implausibly, that their very ideas threaten to undermine our culture or humanity in some fashion. Along the way, he doles out generous heapings of unremitting, snarky scorn. Adam Thierer explains how this anti-tech grump fails to make his case.
