Using technology rather than letting it use us.

I use my iPhone and my iPad to read books about the origins of capitalism, the drives behind totalitarianism, the differences between socialism and communism, and the writings of Kropotkin and Tolstoy as they grapple with the ideas behind anarchism.

I find out about these books through recommendations from people in my social networks or the algorithms in Amazon.

I use my Apple Watch to record my increasingly radical ideas as I walk around listening to excellent podcasts by people like Russell Brand.

I use apps from the App Store to support my ever more serious commitment to meditation and to Buddhist ideas and philosophy.

People complain about what technology is “doing to them”.

It’s a choice.
