I am trying to say the following:
"The Machine Stops" is E.M. Forster’s literary attempt to call to attention to an ever-growing technicalization of society.
Of course, that is not a word, but I need a word or phrase that does the same job. I thought that maybe mechanization might work, but that doesn't really describe what I am trying to say, since that implies that only machines are involved, while I am thinking of machines and beyond (i.e. all technical processes).
