I think computers, apple products, Microsoft software, and stuff like that are making teens (and sometimes adults) to connected to this kind of stuff. I mean look at me I'm on a computer right now cause I have nothing else to do. for this reason I think the production of these electronics should get lower. These kinds of thing affect kids health and there learning.

Essentially my opponent is arguing (ironically on an entertainment debating site) that the only technological facilities we should have available are those that are important to business or formal education alone.

The reasoning offered is that pro tell us as if in a dramatic monologue to "Look at me I'm on a computer right now (be)cause I have nothing else to do." Unless pro is literally a robot designed purely for the purpose of computer use then they definitely have something else to do but chose to use the computer for their own entertainment, in this case it was in the form of debating.

If pro did truly have nothing else to do than use their computer this would be a point in favour of con because poor little pro would have nothing to do without such technology.

I have yet to see a single effectively reasoned contention for pro.

When I said the part were I'm on the computer because I have nothing else to do is saying I need to change and do something more productive with my life. Things like technology (though can be useful at some times like work) isn't useful. Like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram it is more of a "hey you look at me and like this" It isn't going for "hey lets make the world a better place." I find it that I'm not leaning toward the cons side more like I'm trying to make a change in my life. Have a better future. But then people like you get in the way of making these changes.

"When I said the part were I'm on the computer because I have nothing else to do is saying I need to change and do something more productive with my life." my opponent clearly feels that debating is unproductive and has disregard this site's validity as a productive means of intellectual conflict altogether which is not only disrespectful but outright ignorant.

"Things like technology (though CAN BE USEFUL at some times like work) ISN'T USEFUL." this is self-contradictory to the extent that I needn't explain it.

"I find it that I'm not leaning toward the cons side more like I'm trying to make a change in my life." this is my opponent's personal feeling. It proves nothing.

"But then people like you get in the way of making these changes." Personal attack on the speaker.

I find it odd that you would keep trying to use my words against me but you keep leavening out the stuff AFTER what I stated. How about you give an actual statement saying why you think technology would actually make you better when you are on it 24/7 I'm not truly going for the cons side.

what does that even mean. you don't even know what you are talking about. All I'm saying is that there should be less technology going around I want an ACTUAL reason why there shouldn't be less technology.
