What Would Ivan Ilich Say Today?

If he said the following below three-and-a-half decades ago?
    The machine-like behavior of people chained to electronics constitutes a degradation of their well-being and of their dignity which, for most people in the long run, becomes intolerable. Observations of the sickening effect of programmed environments show that people in them become indolent, impotent, narcissistic and apolitical. The political process breaks down because people cease to be able to govern themselves; they demand to be managed.
Quoted by one of Roissy's commenters — I Could Tell You, But You Won’t Like It.
