Yes, Technolgy makes man lazier. It actually, does that by making him get whatever he wants from wherever he is.

I will show that technology doesn't make man lazier.

Argument i Technology that helps man become productive

What about technology that increases productivity. Typically, a disabled person cannot work and is not productive. There is a technology that exists that allows disabled people to walk and be fully functional again(1) This would not make the disabled person lazier, it would make them productive.

So, if a disabled person were to walk and complete work and be productive, he is not lazy but instead active.

Argument ii Technology that helps man learn

There is technology that helps people in educational facilities. If people became educated, they would be more productive and motivated to do something and thus, they are not lazy. (2

Argument iii Laziness does not come from technology

Technology doesn't make you lazier, you choose to be lazy. Other factors that contribute to laziness include lifestyle, distraction, and procrastination. Lifestyle includes what you eat, not just what you do with time. (3)

Technology helps to improve your life. Online learning, create a network, find new friends , find a date and so on. Technology itself do not make lazy but the way how it is used. Every day hours on FB that can make you lazy.
