Is advanced technology invading our freedom to think and work?

  • Advancement in technology

    And did you know that technology advancement is also the cause of many health issues.Children have stopped taking part in physical games and are stuck to their mobile phones and i pads,and they are also glued to the internet.Now you can see that how technology has ruined our precious relationships.

  • It isn't in control

    Technology is like a glove, its useless without a humans using it or in technology's case, a human programming it, people decided not to put it down but it doesn't mean they cant. This relies on the persons psychological strength. People need to learn to develop the skill to lose habits because technology addiction can be considered as habit

  • Yes it is!

    Pakistan's national poet Allama Iqbal says that: the machines are the death of the heart of man.
    I completely agree that technologies are ruining not only human relationships but also our entire thinking spectrum. People of the modern era are comparatively very narrow minded than our elders.
    So in a way it is ruining our entire lives!

  • Check the terms

    Just checked the terms for Apps by Facebook, Google, YouTube etc, and they ALL can basically take control of your devices and access most if not all of your private info. If you want to read about the future, read the book The Circle by D Eggars, it's scary because we are nearly there!!

  • Technology is taking over lives

    Technology is taking over our lives gradually with all the phones and tablets and everything. We are spending more time on facebook and youtube and google more than we are viewing the outside world. Instead of listening and paying attention to like for example a concert we are recording them on electronic devices instead of enjoying the moment

  • Technology is what it is

    No one can get rid of it without major problems. Many people can't survive without it. It has helped education and made research easy. Arguments can be solved with a few clicks of an iphone. Sure bad things can happen through technology but bad things happen no matter what! Long live properly used technology.

  • The internet kills privacy

    Since the internet appears, the world we live in seems to become smaller.
    So everyone knows everyone, what he/she has done, which kind of site he/she goes often. What we thought will be a revolution, is becoming a spy that destroys our privacy. This was planned by governments to have a better control on population. What Orson Wells wrote in 1984 is starting to happen.

  • Not everyone is that addicted to technology

    Technology is just fr making our life easier so we don't have to to all the complicated thinking. It doesn't mean our minds are deteriorating, only thing is that we must no lose focus of the basic things to know which is why we still have schools. If we didn't have schools, the new generation will have minds equal to a potato. Not everyone in the world is so addicted to gadgets that they will sacrifice anything to be able to use wi-fi.

  • Facilitation of life

    Using advanced technology is equivalent to the facilitation of life. How many of us have texting in our phone plans? How many texts are made each day? It may be hard to believe, but in real life we've become unsocial-able despite the term"Social Networking" labeling the way we communicate with each other in the 21st century. How many of us use Facebook? Twitter? How many hours of your life have you spent on the internet that you could have spent face-to-face with your friends? It's this age's fad; however, it's ruining our lives as we become dependent on searching Google and/or other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, etc. I doubt you have at least once thought of plagiarizing other's works found on the internet. Technology advancements birthed the existence of Music/Media/Game pirates. Everything we do kill ourselves bit by bit. Technology allows us to lie to ourselves and find excuses to use our new devices. It's more efficient to write digitally on an iPad and not on paper? Waste Paper? KILL TREES? USING THE DEVICES IS SUPPORTING THE MANUFACTURING OF THESE HARMFUL DEVICES. Radiation kills. We are using up all the resources that are not limitless. Cities are growing. There will be no more suburban areas. No place to farm. We will soon eat synthesized fruits and vegetables. Global Warming. Power Plant failures. Air pollution. Killing nature...

  • Advanced technology is not invading our freedom to think and work, because it is just a tool.

    Advanced technology is just a tool which humans use to make work easier. On a very basic level, is it easier and faster to move dirt with your hands, a shovel, or a bulldozer? With computers, we perform calculations that would take hours or days using pencil and paper. Computers give us access to massive amounts of data instantly, speeding up our thinking process.

  • Advanced technology is not taking over us, but rather helping us make life easier to live.

    We have automatic sprinklers in our homes, making us a bit safer than in the earlier centuries, when one had to run down to the creek and fetch water to put out the fire in his neighbor's house. While technology can have an adverse effect on humanity, it is better if we understand it and use it to our advantage. Compare countries that have embraced the use of technology (U.S. and Japan), and countries that have suppressed its citizens from advancing (North Korea and Afghanistan). While some of these countries have other issues hindering them from moving forward, if they were allowed to freely embrace technology, they will grow.

  • Advanced technology is not invading our freedom to think and work, because it is instead helping our abilities.

    With advanced technology comes a better ability to perform our work and increase our thinking. Yes, we now have computers that will do our simple tasks, along with some of the more difficult ones. However, as human beings, we still need to understand how the tasks are done in order to satisfy our insatiability for knowledge. Also, since computers cannot build themselves, we will always need those with the intelligence and talent to build and program them to do these tasks.

  • Is this motion ligit?

    Freedom is a hollow word unless a defined limit is given to it. Freedom lets say in this case is to be creative, be able to invent and be able to perform tasks. Moving on to my first point- creativity: Technology doesn't intrude here but it provides the basement. Can you make the Guggenheim Museum if the thought of cladding had not come first? Technology inspires the next new technological advancement. To be able to invent, electronic devices allow research to be documented, software allow us to try and in NO WAY abstains our path to invention. Allow us to work- seriously, how can technology hinder work? No one will know better than anyone who works that every job requires technology. Computers, iPads, software etc.

  • Technology is changing our way of working and thinking, not invading it.

    People today may think that technology today is invading our working and thinking, but honestly, it is just making it better. Most people just are not used to the news ways of working and thinking, so they are logically resorting to their instinct of being afraid of concepts they are not completely knowledgeable about.

  • No i dont think so

    It is upto our view or way to use a thing either in a positive way or negative way. As it is said that every coin has two side ; so everything has positive as well as negative aspescts .Why do we always see the negative aspect we oftenly say to think positive then why not apply it evrywhere??? We should use it in a positive way. And moreover it has helped as a lot in daily as well as professional life. We can take many examples like vedio chatting it helps us to connect with relatives far away and we can have meetings with those sitting on the other side of earth instead of wasting our time and money just to travel for a single metting .So i strongly believe that it not invading our freedom to think and work.

  • Paralysed yet still happy!

    Technology is good! Which is certainly true for Barry West.
    17 years ago he was a fit and healthy teenager, until a road accident left him paralysed from the neck down. For the last thirteen years he has lived independently, and relies heavily on technology for his day-to-day living and to stay in touch with family and friends .He also uses the internet to help others with spinal injuries.
    “I’ve started using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, I’ve done a website as well to show people that people like myself having an injury are not sort of closed in even though they might feel alone at home sometimes.”

  • Technology is not a creature.

    We control technology. It's the same thing with the media and politics. Plenty of people fall into what society's roles are said to be, but that does not mean that we have to fall into that set guidelines. Technology helps culture advance as a whole. There are several things to be solved through technology and with such inventions that stem from technology, we ourselves our inhibiting our potential for freedom. And honestly, the lack of policing of the internet is exactly freedom.

  • Technology isn't taking over

    Without technology we wouldn't be saving lives and trying to prevent cancer!! This stuff would go on without it. We are exploring new worlds and new places. If people are over using that's on them! We need it and without it we would loose millions of things!! So what if kids don't know how to wright at first, they will learn with help from teachers! I didn't know how to wright when I was little and now I can!! This came from the help of my parents, teachers, and TECHNOLOGY!! Technology is not over running our lives it is helping us!! If we would learn how to use it and have a healthy balance of using it and going out side and doing something active it would be better.
