Technology has highly evolved over time. In fact, nowadays almosteverybody has some sort of machine at hand, be it computers, cars,or even washing machines.
But although machinery was devised tobenefit mankind, it has also brought along many flaws to match.Firstly, when it comes to technological equipment such ascomputers, disruption most often arises between the person usingthe computer, and the household he or she is surrounded by, orliving with. For example, many old family traditions such as eatingmeals with your relatives at the dining table seldom take place nowthat one of the family members might be too busy working on hisMac. laptop. Thus, family values and morals have changed in order toadapt to this technological age.
Secondly, having many kinds of machinery at hand is notonly destroying family traditions, but is also very harmful to ourenvironment. Many people are careless about allowing their carengines to run haphazardly, or leaving their laptops on for longperiods of time, however they do not seem aware of the fact that allthis energy and electricity consumption is dangerous to not only ourlocal environment, but to the world as a whole. Additionally, it is theover-usage of machinery, big or small that is bringing our society evercloser to Global Warming, and we must stop.
As I mentioned in my introduction, technological equipment wasnever programmed to damage nature per se, but to help peopleall around the globe. Now that nuclear families aren’t as closelyintact compared to the 1950s or 1990s, technology has given us analternative method to keep in touch with our relatives thanks tocomputer applications such as Skype, or even cell phone applicationssuch as VIBER or WhatsApp. Machinery has most definitely donewonders in our lives, and we as people should be grateful to easilypossess cars, and/or phones when poorer countries do not even havethe chance to.However, with all the advantages machinery has brought to us all,I personally believe that possessing too many cars or phones, or evenconsuming too much of their energy and battery, is beginning to getout of hand and needs to be controlled.
