The Luddites were in favor of producing cloth on primitive hand operated looms. Such looms were often in private homes where the weavers worked incredibly long hours to produce not very much cloth.
The Luddies were also in favor of NOT letting other people decide how to run their own lives. Like union thugs today they were arrogant enough to insist that their way of doing things was the only correct way and that everone else should conform to their twisted view of right and wrong.
Or one could say:
Before factories, cloth was produced by self-employed weavers, working from home. Wives and daughters would spin the yarn, and the men would weave it. When factories started up, the quantity of cloth produced by powered looms put them out of business at a stroke.

Many power looms were destroyed by many people, but an actual Mr Ludd went about the country making speeches and rabble-rousing. I think his name was James Ludd, but I'm not sure. 'Luddites' was a handy label for all the people put out of business by the new technology, and furious about it. These people ended up working for starvation wages at the factories, in the end. Plus ca change, eh? in fact i believe that it as general ludd...and that the luddites often called the operation of destroying new machines "General Ludd" the luddites were definatley for the domestic system
