Modern technology is a wonderful thing in my assesment but
I also feel that the potential for dehumanization, depersonalization,
and dependence often outweigh it's benefits.
The question to ask yourself is where does your life fit in the
equation? Are you a slave to modern technology or do you
use it's advantages to your advantage.
Anything can be taken to far if allowed. Everytime a new
form of tech. is invented (usually for the betterment of mankind
with good intentions)...we all know what the road to hell is paved
with... there is always someone willing to develope insidious
applications from the tech. The modern technology is not wrong
or evil in and of itself but only the applications it can provide;
the same as guns do not kill people... people kill people. You
take away the guns and people will still murder people. Always
have... always will. With that said, I do not fear modern tech
as a principle but as a potentially intrusive necessity that has
the capability to bite if taken apathetically.
You dont need to live in a bubble, run to the hills, or throw
your computer away (although there would be enrichment to
be found, and has by many people who finally woke up to
what was around them) but take everything with moderation.
I would be happier if people were at least aware of the potentially
dehumanizing applications modern tech can pose and still did
nothing to modify their lifestyle than to not recognize this at all.
It's often the snake you don't see that bites you.
