Are we way too dependent on technology?
Debate Rounds (3)
I propose that while this is specifically about electronic technology instead of general technological innovations by-and-large humans are still not "too dependent" on modern technology and as a matter of fact do most if not all of their essential functions without it on a regular basis.
"Use" and "Usefulness" are two totally different things, and with that stated, I secondarily claim that "use" is common but "usefulness" is not necessarily a by-product of use relating to technology in the modern era. Instead of stating that technological dependence is a problem I assert that the problem lies in the items manufactuered by those who would make empires being the issue.
As a centralized example I'd use Twitter or Facebook saying that the addiction to these resources is less to do with the technology that makes them possible and the basis of these enities which is the natural state of humans as a social species and the desire for sociological acceptance. On that front it could be then stated that technology is not the issue at all.
So what do you think, defender of the CON/PRO.
Your decision not to use certain types of technology for certain uses is fine, and not even surprising, but technophobia being expressed in a debate on the internet is a little ironic. Fostering paranoia of machinery and even non-digital technology is extremely dangerous simply because all human progress is based entirely on their technological advancements. Whether it's the houses we live in, the desks we sit at, the chairs we sit on, or the complex computers we use the basic reality is that it was all made, bought, delivered, assembled, or otherwise handled using modern computerized technology.
This only brings me to think that if a man was stabbed with a screwdriver saying "all screwdrivers are evil" would make sense to Pro.
