Its an open debate. This is a topic which must be discussed because now technology is reaching its unimaginable heights and in one hand is good and in the other its not. I argue and debate for the positive and the goodness came out because of technology. In a word, Technology makes things easier and simpler. May its now the revolution of technology where each and every men use technology over and over again. Technology is everywhere and in everything. Technology is there from the moment a human being is born and till his death. when he is born, normally he is born is a hospitality surrounding where there is technology, then the world in which he lives is the world of technology. Internet, wireless connectivity,network made the communication easier and simpler.roads, trains, planes, jets, car, bus,cruise, ship made the transport easier. the role of technology in medical field is unimaginable. cloning, designing your own baby, artificial hands or some parts of the body and according to the " the Hindu" newspaper who published that the Apollo hospital is trying to create an artificial heart, although is unbelievable still they are trying this out. This is known as the evolution of the technology. Cellphone to mobile phone to smart phone. letters to telegrams to email to fax to message to e-message. wifi, internet networks,etc All are the evolution of technology and which shows the evolution of technology which is becoming much more which is stepping one step to the future world of technologies. technology is even existing in film and movie fields in editing and cinematography. Technology is safer for people which can protect people, help people and be the best to people .the artificial intelligence is one more step towards the new world. the AI will be discussed in round 2 . in short technology make things better and the best and this is the only source which makes people happier. so now, the year 2016, is the revolution of technologies where we can do anything even get medical advice and mental counselling online. the world will become nothing without technology. yes i do agree that there are some setbacks but to achieve something great you must loses something.

"To achieve something great, you must lose something", as stated by the Pro. In the case of technology, we are losing our identities and leaving billions of people behind. There are still over 4 billion people in our world which don't have access to the Internet and other technologies mentioned by the Pro. Since the context for this debate hasn't been narrowed down to the western world, I will be talking about how technology has, in fact, left billions in the dark and only allows for he minority to thrive.

Sure, it's great that people like us in the developed world have access to the Internet, modern medicine, mobile phones and so much more. However, overlooking the fact that there are people in countries with minimal access to these forms of technology is ignorant, insensitive and the reason why so many are suffering. Technology has enabled people like us to move forward, but at the expense of the majority. We have been corrupted by the greed of technology and the affluence that comes with it. We are doing little to help those in developing countries move forward and be part of the "Age of Technology". Sure, you can say we're beginning to help them move forward, but what good is it now? We've left them behind and were only just realising it now. The immense suffering that's occurred is because of technology, and them not having adequate access to it.

The Pro seems to be stuck in the western world perspective, and has taken no consideration into the rest of the world and how technology has adversely affected them. We need to take a step back and look at the entire world in a macro level. It's only then that we will truly understand the destructive nature of technology and how it's only made things "easier and simpler" for the developed world, which is by no means the majority.

each and everything has step backs and pullovers but this life life of each and every one you raise again and again. so if you dont want the technology then do you want to go back to ston age ? hunting animals with a stone wearing a animal's skin ?
when they our ancestors evolved dont you want to go a step forward too?4 billion people without internet and cellphones ? billion ? nope internet is not the only technology when we say the word technology everyone think of internet and wireless stuff .. but everything else even a watch you are wearing thats technology. well many men and women died to create things even in personal life people's friends or relatives or even they die so that everyone else too die for them ? no . of course not, the same is here many scientist died and even many spent heir entire life in research and the output must be accept to the society. the western part is not the only kings of technology there are queens in the east, north and south too. in medical field you cant imagine the play of technology, it has enlighten the hope and life in many people life. many incurable diseases are no able to be sustained and of course yes they are costly and cant be afforded by someone else like the poor people but there are millions of NGO to protect them but they have to seek the right way and thats it.for example there is a NGO is pondicherry called VOC who help poor people to get good medical aid. a 16 year guy from poor family who had throat cancer has been cured , this incident took place at JIPMER hospital located in pondicherry.

when you walk you stamp on ants or many micro organisms, so to avoid that are you not walking or watching you each step with microscope ? no.because you consider your work and your life is important than those insects. they dont know when they wake up that its their last day. so the fact if whole world except some regions is experiencing the the technology and have been benefited through them and they know that their life has been saved.

i mean this the AGE OF TECHNOLOGY because none can live without technology except the tribes and the ones who never ever saw or used the available technology in their life.

so i assume this is . because none can live without technology. 4 billion people without internet but with cars , bikes , bicycle, watch even dress the cloth you wear is a part of technology . so i assume that the technology exists everywhere than remote areas such as deep forest mountains, lost forests, etc

the fact that we are arguing here in this site using your laptop or mobile or tab , i dont know but through some technological means is the power of technology. if these dont exist then we would rather doing something else .

whole worl rules not only the western part.
world is going to be different and awkward without technology.

2 possibilities one good way where people find love and unity two the bad one lonliness and madness.

I understand that technology is more than just the Internet and I'm not suggesting we go back to the Stone Age. I'm merely pointing out that whilst some of us have moved forward dramatically, we have left others, the majority, behind. It's certainly true that people like us, in countries such as America and England, have become technologically advanced and have thrived because of it. In order for this to happen, we've left billions of people in the dark, and allowed their suffering to continue.

Pro has spoken about the medical advancements and how we're able to treat diseases effectively and efficiently. However, once again, this most,y applies to those in the developed world. Those in countries such as Ethiopia, Ecuador and many more are suffering from diseases like AIDS, and because we've left them behind, they've suffered greatly. We are only just deciding to step in and lend a helping hand, although it's too late.

Technology has allowed us, those living in developed nations, to prosper and embrace all the myriad of opportunities presented by technology. This is all at the expense of those in underdeveloped nations. This is unjust and inhumane. Technology has corrupted us and we're obsessed with moving forward and leaving others behind. We are caught in the greed of technology that we are destroying human nature, leaving billions to suffer. The age of technology is good for some, but the adverse effects it's created on the majority of the world is horrendous, and shouldn't be tolerated by us.
