From a book review

Benjamin A. Plotinsky
The Fanatical Philosopher
Michel Onfray’s weak case against monotheism

....He oddly singles out Chabad-Lubavitch, a Hasidic sect that embraces technology wholeheartedly, as having an “ignorance of the passage of time”—of “space conquest, worldwide information networks, the real and universal time of generalized communications.” Perhaps he should visit Lubavitch’s sophisticated website, where he could sign up for e-mail updates, read news, and purchase books and DVDs. And so on.
