Examining the Effects of Technology on Society

lights.jpg

The effects of technology on society in the United States and other nations have been both positive and negative, but many are now starting to question if more harm than good has been done--at least in some areas. The invention of cell phones has allowed people to remain in close contact with friends and loved ones and have been a means of calling for help when no other phone was available. Nevertheless, the use of cell phones has become an addiction, particularly in American society. People can barely pay attention to traffic, fail to signal when they need to turn, and creep when they're in front of you because they're in the middle of a conversation on their cell phone. Technology gave us this convenience, but what happened to the courtesy to pull over and get out of traffic if you can't handle driving and talking at the same time?

The invention of the digital camera has also been very well received; I use one myself. However, the art of developing pictures in a dark room will probably be lost forever. Does it really matter? Probably not. But, as certain skills and knowledge disappear having been replaced by technology, there seems to be a much lower number of people finding that one thing in life that they really enjoy and with which they can earn a living. Whether people realize it or not, they have much more power than they think to influence the effects of technology on society. They don't have to embrace every new gadget that comes out in a desperate attempt to be in the in-crowd. Such a thought seems to be so prevalent that people are rejecting valuable things that still work simply because they are old. The saying that we've become a throw-away society is, unfortunately, a true statement.

While technology is definitely fascinating and can be very useful, it should never have been allowed to diminish the many fascinating things of what's often called a simple life. Many farmers, no matter how many crops they had grown, continued to be fascinated with the fact that foods to nourish man and trees to shelter him all come from small seeds. Many of the old inventions that were great in their day, but are now mocked, remain fascinating. The workings of a windmill, the knowledge required to dig a well, the construction by hand of canoes and rafts from trees, and the intriguing art of bee keeping are all skills that even a rocket scientist probably lacks. The effects of technology on society can truly be controlled by the people who are not forced to buy the most recent inventions which are so often to be quickly replaced by a new product.

The people of old were truly fascinating. Without technology they built fine castles, palaces, and the seven wonders of the ancient world. They made musical instruments, sailed the seas without sophisticated electrical equipment, constructed fine garments, and practiced natural medicine with such knowledge that many lived well past 100 years of age. They tamed wild animals, precisely controlled pests and plant diseases as they practiced organic gardening, baked bread without yeast purchased in a store, predicted the weather having never studied meteorology, and so many more things required to live their life. How many people in the modern world of industrialized countries can say the same or could survive if the many technologies on which they rely were suddenly removed? Not many. The skills and knowledge possessed by the generations that were before us should be preserved that the effects of technology on society are controlled by people who aren't always seeking after something new when often the old is even more fascinating and harmless than the new.
