From Virilio's "The Administration of Fear"

Tele-technologies are nothing more than prostheses, and thinking about freedom in relation to prostheses is altogether new.  For example, can you say "no" to prostheses, especially in cases where they do not have a directly curative function?  When they are adjuvants, increasing my "power to act," my power to be, how could I say "no" to them?  Would I have the strength to decide to go without them and remain an "unaugmented" human?  This ethical question has hardly been explored.
