As years pass by, scientists work tirelessly to make more advanced technology to make everyone's lives more comfortable and automated. In society, this is seen as a gift, since it allows the world to work less for the things wanted, but nothing can be perfect. Sadly, technology has lowered the intelligence level of humans, not only with knowledge, but also with social intelligence. This can be found in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, where it is normal in society to not be intelligent. Throughout the book, there are multiple examples where people in the 451 world become too attached to their technology that they no longer want intelligence nor do they want to interact with other humans.
In the 1950’s when Bradbury wrote this book he made many predictions that to an extent came true in modern Time. These predictions revolve around the fact that technology is becoming more important in modern life and making things more simple. Bradbury Says that not only is technology making things easier but with that people are becoming more lazy. Since people nowadays are becoming more lazy they also have less of a strive to learn. This making the plot of the book quite similar to what you might see in modern times.
Since the technology is now fast-paced and keeps improving, reading is being taken for granted. Many people used to read for enjoyment in the previous decades, but now less people enjoy reading. I do not think we will be reading for fun in the next decade because of all the new advanced technology we will have. We as a society are too busy wondering what is happening on social media at the exact moment and what is on TV than sitting down and reading a book. Cheryl Barnett-Bey’s passage, “Read with Purpose,” is similar to my literacy story because I would skim through books just to get the assignments done.
They also say that the machines are more advance and are able to show emotions and be a friend (112-13). This just lets us know that our world is changing and coming up with more advance technology. The reason they have robots as a replacement for kids is because the world is overcrowded, and they have to request permission to have a real kid; the people didn’t really have anything else to do but live their own private lives. Most of the people felt lonely and didn’t seem to be too happy. In the article “Closer to the machine?
“... I was angry at first when Dr. Strauss told me I was giving Dr. Nemer a complex.” (Keyes 236) During this time period Charlie was smarter than his doctors. Charlie didn 't understand the effects. Therefore,if he did,he wouldn 't had the surgery done and contributed to science with the
Thoreau’s belief is that people who find value in materialistic things show that they do not have the ability to rely on their own power or understanding. When it comes to these select people and technology, it seems that they turn to technology for almost everything. They do not feel that they have the ability to solve their problems without the use or possession of technology. People of this nature can be considered lazy because they are not using technology as a benefit, instead, they are using it as an alternative to using their own brain. For example, someone is doing their math homework and have to figure out what nine multiplied to the second power is.
The risk of the inventors was also a reason for the lack of advance, many times they would end up poor if it failed or if it was too expensive to spread. When governments began to get incentives, like patents and money for inventions more inventions began to be created. Many time countries would pay popular inventors to move to their country, so that they could advance farther than other countries and create more economic progress for their country. Technology that was created during the classical time period is not well documented, some inventions can even be attributed to later periods but really be created during this time. Many great inventions were made during this time, and then built upon during later periods.
Some of the problems people dealt with in the Revolution were just temporary, because as more Information and improvements on science surfaced the less problems people dealt with. Most didn’t deal with such problems such as middle class which life improved or upper class where
Technology was meant to help people learn and improve their lives, but it has instead increased the naivety of the world. Technology has made people dependent on it, gullible, and lose verbal skills, which has led to a naïve world. Getting information has never been easier than it is today. People simply need to type into Google what they wish to know, and there is the answer. They now rely on technology to help get information easier.
Lower classes of people would not be able to obtain jobs untroublesome, due to the level of education they obtain. Even if jobs are recycled and robots have countless of other benefits. There will still be a large number of people who will have trouble finding a new job after losing their previous one. However there are different solution to improve robotic replacement. In conclusion, there are more advantages to robotic replacement.
