Technology has really liberated us

  • Technology is ruining mankind as we speak!

    People have become so lazy and dependent upon electricity, computers, television, and all these other luxuries, people have forgotten our natural roots. This being said if disaster were to strike the United States as we speak, people wouldn't wouldn't know what to do without the common goods and services they benefit from today.

    This being said, people need to go back to their roots.

    Not to mention, technology is killing jobs and making people robots themselves. It's so sad. I don't understand why farmers can't go back to the traditional way of farming and why we can't go back to doing some other things in a traditional sense.

    We are losing all of our independent thought and eventually there will be no such thing as independent thought.

  • Technology actually does more harm than good

    How can technology actually do more harm than good? Let us take moment to think... Look around at some of the many diseases or problems in the world: Cancer, Malfunctioning of the eyes and ears, Suicidal bombing, murder and so many more. Firstly what causes cancer in most people? Well believe it or not technology does it!!!! Here is how; If a person was to become hungry in the middle of the night and decided to prepare macaroni and cheese in the microwave, when that persons stands in front of the microwave he/she has a 99% chance of getting cancer!!! Now let us evaluate. Is it really better to risk getting cancer or even life than to do without a simple microwave.

  • Life is way easier.

    Each day in this era is much comfortable than it was before.

Technology keeps advancing and keeps making our life easier.

  • Too much harm

    Children are becoming isolated and are stuck on their miserable technology gadgets. They have lost a lot of time and must study more to achieve extra marks in exams or more importantly HSC. Students and humans are becoming lost in technology and don't know what to do. Technology must not be taken for granted certainly has cause more harm than good

  • Technology causes more harm than good.

    Because of technology, we have cured more diseases, made our lives better and helped more people. Transportation, medicine, clothes, gadgets, all of them have done more harm than good. And i think nothing is ever perfect and the bad effects of technology are worth the people that benefit from it.

  • Yes i think its harmfull

    Technology has very much impacted us and made us the dominant species, but maybe we are doing it wrong. Ignorance is bliss. But we are so ignorant of the simple things because of technology. Technology has made certain things less sentimental especially communication. The media completely controls our opinion, it is almost as if media is religion, And we are so ignorant of this. Technology gives people too much power and its like we are living in a world where we are controlled ll by technology

  • Diluting society from inside

    Technology first made things efficient, but soon the advent of social media began, and then computers started taking jobs, and then the only jobs were IN computers. Social media is especially prevalent as something completely destroying discourse in society, turning people into narcissistic drones forced to compete with each other over Internet fame. If we shut it all down, we might be better off.

  • It`s people not technology!!!

    For me, technology caused more good than harm at us. Why? Just take into consideration this website. We can easily communicate our opinions and principles no matter what time is or where you are. It makes our life more convenient than ever. Mainly the goal of technology is to help us in our daily tasks but WE, people were very abusive when using this. Therefore, it`s the people`s use of technology that caused more harm and not technology alone.

  • Without tech we would still be in the old age wearing leather clothes only and walking long distances under the hot sun

    I support no because we students use technology to search the things we are actually saying now. Without technology we would have been backwards. What its only done is make our life easier. And all the blasmephy is on you saying people have become lazy what about those who aren't lazy. Its given us hope and courage from finding biotics and medicine for the sick

  • No harm done

    Without technology, I would not have found information for my debate in my English Class. I would not have some entertainment in my free time. Games, Information all are from the internet. But i have to use the internet properly of course What do you think my friendly and smart boy

  • Technology is more harm than good

    Many inventions are there that make people addicted and also everything has its limits but when the limit crosses it is very dangerous. The usage of phone not only adults but also childrens have their personal phone from small age as a result they gets specs or any other harmful effects so i think that it has done more harm than good

  • Because we can't travel faster and we wouldn't have nice houses.

    All I'm saying is that we wouldn't have fast cars we wouldn't even have cars so thanks to tech we have better life and we have bigger houses to stay in which is safe so technology people keep it coming and also in the future the will even be better life AKA techs cool

  • Bad technology kills

    Technology has made some of the most bloodiest battles in history even bloodier because of the warships,bombs, guns are used against each other.People are dying😭 because of technology.We have irresponsible drivers that cause accidents with 🚗 and ✈️ please stop ✋ 💻 people are dying I hope you hear me.

  • Technology helps students

    Technology helps students because when you are in class and your teacher wants a 5,000 word essay on there desk tomorrow and has to have evidence. You really need a computer or and Ipad to do it on. Or if you are like me and have dyslexia you need technology to read or check spelling. Technology help everyone specifically 1st to 3rd grade teachers because you have about 30 kids shouting out to ask how you spell something but my little cousins class has an Alexa that tells them how to spell. P.S everyone saying technology is harmful are hypocrite's because y'all are on trying to say it not when you all have some kind of phone and if you didn't then you would't be on here saying it is you would say it to people in real life

  • It's based on you.

    The fact that technology hinders our health and assists crime, like terrorism and cyberbullying, is irrefutable. However, on the contrary, technology also brings so many benefits like advancements in the medical field, easy communication, access to unlimited information at the touch of our hand, etc. Since both sides of the arguments can be seen as valid, It really is based on you, as an individual, to distinguish the balance between using technology to enhance your life and letting technology overcome you as a person.

  • It helps us It doesn't harm us

    Because technology is mostly made to help us harm us. I'll name a few things that technology helps us with hearing aids have technology in it, doctors need technology to help them with their payshonts and company's need technology to help get things out faster and eassir stuff like that.

  • Technology is doing more good then harm

    It made our lifes easier, it helped us to disscover new species and provide then from distingtion. If it hadn't be for technology, there wouldn't be electrical cars. Scientist makes discoveries that could not harm, but instead protect the environment for example regenerating power such as wind power, solar power etc...

  • Technology is good

    Technology is enriching man kind day by day.Medical breakthroughs are happening thanks to technology.Phones are also technology and are helping us we are able to send urgent messages quickly,we are able to learn new things by going on search engines.We've all gotten an X-ray of some sort,say we broke a bone and were in pain how would we know

All technology has done is made it easier to communicate and do jobs. Though why do we need it? Seriously. We could live without all this crap. It's really odd to me since technology has boomed not too long ago so has mental health issues. Go figure.
