Morozov was ahead of his time when, in 2011, he published The Net Delusion, a cautionary essay about the internet as an intrusive and oppressive force in modern life. He followed that up, in 2013, with To Save Everything, Click Here: The Folly of Technological Solutionism, in which he questions the benefits of technological progress, urging the cultivation and nurturing of “imperfections” in liberal democracy. Now a senior editor at The New Republic, Morozov is also working on a doctorate at Harvard, on the history of science.
