    Is Technology Really a Good Thing?

    Look at social media, look at facebook. Sure people are able to keep in touch all over the world, but there's also bullying following people home and then you've got people posting their personal business in every post.

    Here's what I really wanted to talk about. Back when manufacturing started, men or people put those cars or items together. Now machines put those cars together. Doesn't that put people out of jobs? Doesn't machines sometimes put people out of jobs? Now we got machines doing surgery in hospitals.

    You also notice the more advanced technology is, the more obese people are becoming.

    Look up the 'Luddites'.

    People are put out of jobs, but new jobs are also created. Instead of people having a job that involves putting car parts together, there are people designing, building, implementing and servicing the machine that puts the car parts together.

    Are you implying technology is a leading factor of obesity? That is the person's fault. Technology does not dictate my life or my choices, I have that will. And so does everyone else. It's not the technology that's bad, it's the dependency on it that is. But I LOVE technology. I can't wait for the next few decades to see how much it progresses in terms of medicine, travel and entertainment. I only wish I was born 100 years from now to truly reap the rewards and benefits of the future. Yes, I do agree that technology is bad in the sense that it replaces people, but more jobs are created and people will have to adapt.

    Yes. Technology is a good thing. Can't blame technology for lazy and stupid people.

    As long as you don't rely on it 24/7 and don't become addicted, I would say it's a good thing.

    Do you weep for the blacksmiths of old? What about the machines now that handle once dangerous jobs?

    It still takes people to build, develop, and operate those machines. And machines don't perform surgeries alone; they require trained staff and doctors to utilize them. The inevitable accomplishment of our technological progress will be to free us from our social and economic shackles: To free us from death and disease, from war, famine, and allow us to exist in a greater society beyond working and fighting over limited resources.

    All obesity means is that we as a species have mastered our environment. The advancement of technology itself has little to do with it. It's an individual's fault for becoming obese, but also our Government's for poorly regulating what companies put into our food.

    Technology is only a tool, and a tool can be used to either create or destroy. However, I would argue that moreso technology had been used to benefit mankind overall. We have cured diseases. We have fed the hungry. We have put footsteps on the Moon. We have propagated ourselves rather successfully, greatly increasing our life quality and living conditions. Even in the face of technological abuse, such as nuclear weapons and other devices of war, the answer still seems quite obvious.

    I think technology is a good thing, people can always have the choice on how far they go with it though. If technology is making you fat, you got issues.

    OT tech is good in general but will always hav negative implications. If men still put together cars manually, there would probably be less than half the currnt vehicles on the roads...hmm maybe that would be a good thing? lol

    Tech helps my dispersed family keep in touch, it enables me to us my cell when I'm drunk and lost in the city (lol) and to play awsome games!
