His most recent book is Plantation of the Automatons. His website is http://www.jamestunney.com.
Here he argues that society itself is turning into a giant machine, like an automaton and that individuals are, slowly, becoming integrated into this machine, and thus losing their autonomy. The antidote to this situation is the cultivation of a strong inner, spiritual life. However, societal mechanisms operate in a manner as to suppress the inner life with the many distractions of technology. He warns that many technologies, such as genetic engineering, sold to the public as beneficial – have the potential to be used by corporate entities for purposes of social control.
