Raging Against The Machines - Who Were The Luddites?
"According to legend, a young kid named Ned Ludd had smashed up a couple of [knitting machines] some time in the late 18th century. The Luddites of the early 19th century took up Ludd's name and cause. They began smashing up factories and, occasionally, killing people." The Smart Set 01/16/13
