[mghvqkqf] Luddites as a protected class

Technology marches forward at (seemingly) exponentially faster rates.  Network effects, broadly, might induce everyone to adopt some technology.  However, the effect of a technology might require generations to properly evaluate.

Consider making people who refuse to adopt some technology a protected class, with the government providing them social assistance, in order to generate socially useful data about the delta effect of the technology.

(We currently already get such differential data from third-world countries who simply lack access to some technology.)

The protection lasts only a generation or two from the introduction of the technology, probably invalidating protection for most instances of people stupidly refusing vaccines.
