The word or term was not Future Shockto my recollection, but I could see how it overlaps with that idea. It was more along the lines of the description of the intent of technology to do harm rather than describing the emotional state of the agent. I might have to listen to all the shows from around the time…
Thanks for the replies hitherto. I could really go for a Baader-Meinhof moment right now.
You are probably looking for "Luddite"
I just listened to the show with the word "Luddite." However, this isn't what I remember of the caller or as being the word. The pathetic fallacy is in line with the idea. You have to possess the pathetic fallacy or at least comprehend it to be able to explain this idea of technology actively being out to get you. Today, I will start combing through shows that could possibly be it. Looking forward to more answer, the ones so far are really interesting ideas by themselves.
