I think the left and the right are pretty broad categories of people. And what will be considered left and right will vary with each society. I am a right wing by Norwegian standards but left wing by American standards.

I think you find anti-technology and science people on both the left and the right side, but they will use very different justification. On the left many people naturally care a lot about jobs for workers and the potential of technology to make many professions redundant. On e.g. the Chritian right one will frequently see science as a threat to many of their deepest held beliefs.
