Alex Burns writes about the 1980s/1990s:
“Some cultural analysts saw the ‘Mole People’ as an alternative society model, a critique of liberal progress doctrines. Douglas Rushkoff’s ‘Cyberia: Life In The Trenches Of Cyberspace’ (Harper SanFrancisco, 1994) included the ‘Mole People’ in its description of fringe communities. ‘Mole People’ became a description of the lowest caste within emerging New Media industries.”
