A Luddite mindset in this sentence probably means an anti technology mindset. The Luddites, as the industrial revolution took hold saw that machines did the work of men quicker & more efficiently. Obviously this meant there would be less work for men to do & therefore they might be unemployed & therefore in poverty. If they could destroy the machenery then their jobs would not be taken away from them.
