In The Abolition of Man, C. S. Lewis foresaw a deadly marriage between moral subjectivity and technological advancement.

Don't let them neuter you. Many generations of men gave everything they had so you could walk about in civic freedom. Christ gave the splendor of Heaven and then laid down his life to a cruel death so you could partake of spiritual freedom and the liberty out of which came the civic. No more complacency. It's our time to give it all we have.
