The modern technology can be a good ou bad things, depends to peoples who used it. If peoples used it for good things, the modern technology will be good. But if they are used it for bad things, like for criminals, it will be bad, too.
Everyone is always anti-tech when it comes in the form of entertainment cos kids aren't going outside, people don't socialise face to face yadda yadda. But what about modern medicine, health care, transport and business. It's all thanks to tech.
It has its uses, that's for sure. Technology, in itself, is pretty good, because it gives rise to many of the things we use in modern society. Almost everything depends on having modern, updated technology.
In saying that, people are useless when it comes to technology. We misuse it on many different levels for pointless crap that sucks other humans into spending money on things that they really don't need. We also misuse it when it comes to genetically-engineering ou modifying animaux and other organisms.
All-in-all, I don't think technology is bad - I just think people, in general, are quite moronic, especially when it comes to the use of technology.
It just depends on how toi use it. The abuse of modern technology is what leads people like the modern child's parents to say that it is bad, and their kid is using it too much and that their kid is obsessed. That is only because they do it nonstop, and that in my opinion is abuse of technology. That being said, there is also quite a good side to technology. The making of modern medicine, transportation, entertainment and such is very much dependent on technology. Many of these things could not be made without the use of technology. Making medicine is one of the most important aspects of modern health, and what is used in making that? Technology! Though, I also think that us humans should not have let ourselves become so dependent on it. We use it a bit like a crutch nowadays, and I think we as a race could certainly do without that. The jour will come when we lose everything we take for granted, and we should be prepared.
