Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Technology is an important part of our lives. We use computers and other electronic equipment at work and in the home. However, some people believe we rely too much on machines, and that the more technology improves, the lazier and weaker humans will become. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people believe that the more advanced and sophisticated our technology becomes, the lazier and weaker we will become, whereas others think that it is not true.
I think there is no need to worry about that. True, machines make our lives easier, most of what used to require human labor is now completely automated. However, I do not think it makes us lazier. It saves us a lot of time and energy allowing us to do what we truly want to do.
At the same time there are people who think that technological advances make us lazier. If we do not have to work at all, they say, we will just spend our time doing nothing or watching TV, or playing computer games. We will become weak and stupid.
In my opinion these people have a point. Some people may indeed choose to be that lazy. However, I do not think they would be the majority. Most people prefer staying active regardless of whether they have work or not. These people will get a perfect opportunity to do the things they love instead of doing what they do not like but have to do.
In conclusion, I would like to say that technological progress just gives us more options. What we choose to do with them is everyone’s personal business. I think that most of us will choose to stay active, doing what we really like.
