Technology has taken over.
Debate Rounds (4)
I accept. Please state your case.
Technology has taken over because all I see are people texting. Every time I go on a sidewalk or something like that, I get bumped a lot by people who are texting and not paying attention. Cell phones are a wonderful invention, but too many people are distracted by them. They should be just for calling. That's what they were intended for, but all these nerds had to put texting and stuff on it which is distracting and might endanger peoples lives like when people text and drive.
Technology taking over means that people are relying on them too much. Such as not walking to the kitchen because you have a robot that takes care of that. The examples you have chosen shows that people are not using technology as it is intended to be used for (e.g. texting while driving) , and not that people are overrelying on it.
Only 34% of the people in the world have access to the internet. How is that technology taking over?
Also, how do you define technology? If you define it as something that helps us do something easier or faster, then pencil, paper, wheels and stone tools are also technology.
(the use of science in industry, engineering, etc., to invent useful things or to solve problems is one of the merriam-webster definitions) This makes the debate impossible, because technology is too broad. If you define it as electric gadgets, then it would be refuted because people don't seem to rely on gadgets much. Think of all the blenders and puree machines that you have in your garage. If we only talk about computer technology, then the fact that only 34% of the people in the world can access the internet refutes your claim.
