Technology, Truly For The Better Of Mankind?
The world today is filled with technology of different kinds, technology that allows you to speak to people accroa the globe, technology that allows people to fly, to move on qater, etcetera. These techs are getting more and more advanced with each day, the type of phone that was in Vogue the last 5 years has been succeeded by a better faster more sophisticated version. The means of transportation today is way more advanced than the one from the last decade, faster more beautiful vehicles. But with the advantages of technology comes disadvantages as well. Of course nothing is all good, but do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
Take for example electricity, electricity was a big leap for man when it was discovered, one of the most useful things ever, it's used in the everyday life of everybody, but electricity is one of the most dangerous things that exist, it's one of the fastest killers, a small jolt of electricity sent into your body could shut down your entire system. Another thing is Vehicles, fast means of transportation that the world is grateful for. Let's look at the exhaust fumes of Cars, Motorcycles, and big steam ships, these very wxhaexh fumes are the very reason why the ozone layer is depleting. You know whats happening as a result, Global warming. If you notice, you'll see that this year is hotter than last year, and last year was hotter than the last. Another consequence of this is Cancer, the ultraviolet Rays that are coming in are the cause of this
I could go on and on but I'll stop here, so I ask you, is technology really for the better of mankind, or is it going to be our door?
