Technology is what is keeping us out of the dark ages" (http://www.debate.org/opinions/is-technology-moving-too-fast). Without technology, all of the best medicines would not of been made, tested, and put out into hospitals to cure people. As "the faster technology moves, the more advanced our society can become. Only beneficial outcomes can come from technology" (http://www.debate.org/opinions/is-technology-moving-too-fast). Without phones and computers, people's work would be disorganized and a lot of people, all over the world, would not have a job due to the fact that millions of humans around the universe work on computers.
I totally get the part where many people can plug and play these days but it’s not most of the people out there. Many people still don’t have internet access and computer uninformed. However, the situation is getting better and if I have to guess, in the future almost everyone on Earth will become computing educated. However, being computer literate does not mean having the ability to get the internet. Developing countries getting the internet is not hard but the situation is not like Friedman describes, “Every color of the rainbow will be able to enter the workforce…they’re hungry for your jobs”, It’s overly exaggerated.
Life or Communication Some people believe that technology today is what is ruining people’s lives. They have so much nature and life around them and yet they do not look around. Most news heard from anywhere can be proven pointless, but communication is also a great source of learning about anything and everything. In these cases, the idea of living without pointless news, and the idea of actually gaining knowledge from any of it can co-exist but also is highly considered the opposite from Henry Thoreau’s views in his book Walden, to Heitman’s essay “If Thoreau Were to Move to Walden Today, Would He Bring the Internet? Maybe”.
In David Brooks’ argument in “The New Romantics,” he explains the new romanticism that will come to our world in the near future. He thinks that computers are going to be able to do a lot of cognitive task that no human can compete with the computer. Even though humans are improving our cognitive skills, it will no longer good enough because the computer can be doing most of all things that human can not do well in coming future economy. Only humans are able to do is a task that is emotional. I agree with his argument.
Milton relied more on his computer and yet he found it difficult to find an ideal girl without the help of Joe. The prediction that Asimov had of computers having human characteristics that include thinking like humans and being our memory chips was right. One could truly say he was a medium in evaluation to what is happening in today’s society. Humans have lost the power to reason and technological devices have played a major role in killing common sense and human interactions. A day without a technological device for many will be tragic as people have organized and live their lives through their portable technological devices.
______________________________________________ Restate Argument/Claim (Thesis): Kids can’t get work done because they can’t get off their phones long enough to concentrate away from the distraction of technology. Answer (What would happen if your argument is/is not followed: Technology is one of the biggest distractions out there. It causes accidents, late work, makes kids fail in school and breaks families apart by taking away time from each other. If we didn’t have technology we could get more stuff done in class, save lives by staying off devices while driving and bring families closer
However, this fantasy is quickly becoming a reality due to current trends in technology. With the newly gained freedom of time to most in society and the new distribution of wealth, politics would be in complete and utter chaos. Making the decision as to how to distribute wealth among Americans, who are no longer earning money through the source of work, would be a tedious debate, in which no one would really win. This being said, the infinite amount of leisure time would bring need for more activities. Because of this, governments would be responsible for building community center and public spaces.
some parents feel like the technology use is too important in a child 's life but I urge them to look at it differently. The parents need to look at the safety factor, without a cellular device that can send texts, calls or instant messages, your child will have a harder time communicating with friends and more importantly, the parent. As many parents might think the use of a cellular device or the Texting, IMing, e-mailing -- anything, in fact, that 's not immediate and face-to-face -- has a bonus, notes Nathan Freier, Ph.D., a professor at Rensselaer
Censorship of the internet restricts first and ninth amendment rights, but also gives a sense of security to many people. The argument against government monitoring has been used before in the past for the technology at the time. The government should be able to monitor someoneâ€™s web history and usage if it is deemed a threat. In the United States, citizens due have restriction about what they can do or say. Speech is limited in public places, government meetings, school, work, and when it can but others in danger.
Nevertheless, it is essential to consider what life would be like if human beings did not portray being gritty. Analyze every single invention that you have in your home or your school: cell phones, microwaves, computers, the lightbulb as mentioned before, even teapots, and so on. All of these inventions were created by a gritty person who perseveres for a long period of time in order to make history. Without grit, many individuals would not have the willpower and strength to pursue their aspirations which would heavily affect our future and our society. If people did not have grit, they would be give up on their goals very easily, and they would not better the society because of it; it is because humans have grit that we have become this advanced of a species.
