Marcuse, Herbert. An Essay on Liberation. Boston: Beacon, 1969.

"Is it still necessary to state that not technology, not technique, not the machine are the engineers of repression, but the presence, in them, of the masters who determine their number, their life span, their power, their place in life, and the need for them? Is it still necessary to repeat that science and technology are the great vehicles of liberation, and that it is only their use and restriction in the repressive society which makes them into vehicles of domination?"—Quoted by P. Fitting in "Futurecop" essay, q.v. under Drama Criticism.[1]
