The Way to Eden is all about people rejecting the technoenvironment, and iirc, the disease Sevin carries is a result of it somehow.
Their rejection of technology did not bring them happiness in the end.

Re: Star Trek episodes with an anti technology theme

Why are you calling me Fungus?

TOS is pretty consistent about condemning all attempts at abandoning the orderly and thoroughly industrialized mainstream society. It doesn't matter much if this attempt involves going back to the soil, or giving power to an AI. Kirk is simply the guardian of status quo, rather than a clear-cut technophobe or technophile.
