I believe that as a society we are too dependent on the use of technology in our everyday life.

Con

Forget the Con side. We are definitely too dependent on technology. Technology (phones, computers, tablets, etc.) are supposed to make our lives easier, instead we are letting them control us.

I am writing a paper on this and was hoping on getting some views from the other side. However, I do agree that we are letting technology run our lives instead of enhancing it.

When writing papers about this, you have your side which you agree with and then you have the other side. Just make something up about it. Unless specified otherwise.

Reasons for voting decision: con flat out conceded in the first round that we are 'Definitely too dependent on technology', which is literally what he was supposed to argue against
