question: The term now commonly refers to those acting with foresight and insights far beyond the comprehension of most other folks around. -- I thought a Luddite was someone who did *not* act with foresight and insight beyond comprehension.

I know. Because I'm here to discredit the growing anti-tech movement, headed by both Trump and Putin. -- Bryan See (talk) 04:59, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Colloquial usages[edit]

Is it being Luddite to use the term Luddite to describe the modern situation (given that it is two centuries old)? Anna Livia (talk) 10:17, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
