Hackers as the new Luddites? Feedback

In a periode from 1811 till 1819 an informal and secretive grouop called The Luddites challeged what the powerful called progress, by breaking into factorys and smashing machines, that either took their jobs and left them with no right or lowerede their salery, while making the work more dangerous and less satiesfying. Their rebellion was popular among ordinary people and pawed the way for workers unions and rights, but these days the Luddites has been seen as slightly stupid people fighting against the future - a fight, they just couldnt win. This is not the truth. The leading Luddites were executed by the King and brought to their knees with sheer violent force. Today we are facing automation on a grand AI-scale, and the tech-lash and looming revolt against the TECHGIANTS seems everywhere. But who are the new Luddites? And what are their aims?
