Technology. A blessing or a curse?

Post  Lisa Ella Humenberger on Fri Feb 11, 2011 12:00 pm

After the second Industrial Revolution, many new form of technology emerged and gave influence on people's lifestyles. But does technology always benefit us or can it have some negative effects? Ofcourse, this topic has two diferrent point of views, so it will have supporters and opponents.

For the supporters, technology is a good thing. Many of the discoveries made throught time were mainly because of the use of new inventions because technology keeps growing and growing. Also things like the internet also affects our lives. For instance, you have a friend who is miles away. Before you used to writes letters (some people still do), but nowadays you could just call them or talk to them of Facebook. Or you could get on a plane and go visit them. There are also more examples of ways of technology like: medicine, tools, transportation, etc.

On the other hand, opponents think that technology just causes even more problem to the societies. They say that technology is not used to solve problems but to create one. Lets take weapons and nuclear bomb as an example. Nuclear bombs and guns are used to kill. Even if you did survive a bomb attack, you would still infected with the gases, and cause mutations.

I would say that technology is neither a curse or a blessing, but both. Sometimes its good for some things and at other times its not. We can't really blame the object, because its doing what its programed to do. People should blame the ones who invented it. Also every good inventions such as a car, or a plane or even medicine can turn against you and kill you.

What do you think? is it a blessing or a curse?
