Is Technology GOOD, or BAD?

Postby bluealice » Wed Nov 23, 2011 3:54 pm

I've been seeing gadgets everywhere, and people's heads are focusing there than their studies and etc. Yes, technology gave us an easy way to deal with our everyday life... but laziness is the effect, and it affects our economy. Why poverty- bec. of Laziness? maybe... how 'bout you guys... share your thoughts :)

Sometimes I dream of being able to escape this world and enter a new one, one that does not rely on technology at all.

This is rather ironic for someone who spends all their time on the computer, gaming. However, if you saw my predicament from my point of view, it's not ironic at all. :(

This is such a naive question. Obviously technology has both strengths and weaknesses. Yes, instead of walking 50 miles to another city, I can drive in a car - and save a whole lot of time. Is it lazy? Not really, just practical. The goal of walking is to travel to another location, technology just more effecient.

Don't blame technology for laziness - what aspect of technology made you too lazy to spell out the word "because" in your original post?

And did you really say that poverty stems from laziness caused by technology?...Because there wasn't poverty when we didn't have what you would call "technology"? There was no poverty in the middle ages?

I agree completely. The answer to the headline is a plain, loud "No!". And that seems fairly obvious.

Also, I too fail to see any direct link between technology and poverty.

Don´t say that. It´s a good debating subject with the potential for an interesting discussion.
And I won´t nevermind. It´s one of those questions that never leaves your mind, I´m afraid. ;J

I personally think technology is bad because people are getting lazy. And to me it feels the more tech we have the less magic there is in the world. :(
