I believe that people currently rely on technology far too much. They use it now more as a way to get them through daily life. Jobs positions are taken over by the use of technology, people are becoming lazy and using it instead of doing things physically/verbally. As well as this, another thing I would like to add is that children are being introduced to the current technology at too much of a young age, becoming addicted to it and thinking that it's a supposed-to-do way of living.

I am under the understanding that I am debating the Con side despite being 'Pro'.

People do not rely on technology, per se, they simply utilize the fact that it exists. What you are suggesting is that if you are to fight an opponent armed with a spear and the only thing at your fingertips is a sword, you'd opt out of using it and lose the fight just to say that you are less lazy.

This is a fundamentally flawed outlook because it does not indicate laziness for rivals of tech-savvy corporations far surpassing them in profit and output than they ever could achieve 'by hand'. There is no way in which to say that it is lazy to want to compete and not go bankrupt and run out of business by one's competitors, instead it is inspiring and courageous to fight on and stay strong to win by any legal means necessary.

I conclude that reliance on technology is simply a necessity in modern age, not a sign of weakness whatsoever.
