By Robert Heinlein, circa early 40s, from Waldo:

"It may be plausibly urged that the shape of a culture - its mores,
evaluations, family organization, eating habits, living patterns,
pedagogical methods, institutions, forms of government, and so forth -
arise from the economic necessities of its technology."

I am not sure of what he was including in 'economic necessities', but this
seems to put tech at the basis of everything, or nearly.
