Teck has kept us safe like the new car the ford foucus it corrects the things you do wrong while driving
simonstuffles

Con

We are arguing about current technologies, rather future ones. Specifically, we are arguing whether to use of technology should increase, not whether existing ones keep us safe.

P1 Using technology results in a greater frequency of technological advances.
P2 Advances in Nuclear technology could result in annihilation,
P3 Nuclear annihilation would be bad. [http://en.wikipedia.org...]
C1 Therefore, we should stop increasing the use of technology.

What if we dont keep on useing tecknology to find cures to cancer?
If we dont keep on useing it the cure may never be found.

Con

I'm not arguing that the we should stop using technology altogether, just that we should stop increasing the usage of it. We will inevitably find a cure for cancer.

But with what?! like with technology people they trie to make better technology to help cops,doctors,politicians,eta.
What will we find with just 21 cenurty technology later in thef future.In future we will be hilariously behind in technology that other countries will take us as a joke.

This debate also does not refer to the US or any country specifically, so that argument is defunct. Secondly I'd like to repeat that I'm not arguing that the we should stop using technology altogether, just that we should stop increasing the usage of it.
