We as humans have the ability to live our own lives without the use of constant technology. We have become so dependent on it to live our daily lives that it’s almost like an addiction for us. If we lived without technology during the times of the cavemen, we can do it today. I’m not proposing that we rid of technology completely but we have become entirely too dependent on it to live. We are misusing technology for our own benefits. Eventually it is going to catch up with our society for the worse. In the Pixar movie “Wall-e”, humans have destroyed the planet due to their lack of care for the environment. They then are regrettably forced into living in space on a ship called the Axiom because the planet is inhabitable (Wall-e 2008). Wall-e…show more content…
Of course it has benefited our society in many ways but it has also been a distraction and a nuisance to us as well.

Lately it seems we have forgotten how to do this and admit to our faults. The humans on the Axiom and their ancestors have destroyed the Earth and take no responsibility for what they have done (Wall-e 2008). If we don’t change what we are doing now, our lives will forever change. We won’t be as close to others as we have been in the past and communicating face-to-face will be a thing of the past. Technology is making our communication less personable and is tearing our society apart. We can’t let this happen because of the negative impacts it could have on us. Making better decisions today and trying to live more simply will help save our planet. We must learn from the humans on the Axiom instead of repeating their mistakes. The constant use of technology will makes us dependent on it to live and eventually we may forget about how to live for ourselves, much like the humans on the
