Technology As A Blessing And A Curse

Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument.

Good morning, afternoon and good evening fellow bloggers. Today’s challenge has asked a question of us…

 is technology a blessing before our eyes
or is it a curse in disguise?

Me, i was born in the twentieth century. Born into a world filled with all sorts of technology made to make the lives of people easier. So on these terms i’d say technology is indeed a blessing.

Technology has helped us connect with people from lands we’ve never set foot on.

no longer do we have to ruin our style 
by walking miles without a smile.
 no longer do we have to wait 
on the birds of the citadel to read our mail.

We have expanded our eyes beyond sight of the blue skies. Thanks in large part to the capabilities of technology; information, on any topic is widely available.

technology has brought us so much ease
as we, no longer freeze to death in the winter breeze.

Or go without food for thought, because of seven years of drought.

because of technology
I can keep up my energy
by eating food from the factory.
long after its beginning history.

Thanks to the power of technology, we don’t have to risk our lives by heading into a country only to find ourselves in the middle of a full blown civil war.

Thanks to tech, we can find that out in the safety and comfort of our homes and so choose to avoid any places being soaked in the blood of our brethren.

With this in mind, a world with technology should be a better place, right?

Not necessarily.

Technology, with it's helping hand
has unfortunately, also dealt us a mighty hand.

Lies, like butter on bread are spread on television in order to blur our vision.

we're being brainwashed into emotional zombies
that do nothing but disturb the peace.

Technology has made it easier for us to wipe ourselves out faster than it takes me to say, technology.

we've become relatively lazy
mentally, physically and spiritually.

With the invention of calculators, some people no longer think for themselves.
Technology is breeding a world of stupid people. Smart phones.

Also; because of technology, we’ve lost our emotional connection with the world, and ourselves.

we don't talk as much as we used to anymore
and when we do, it has nothing to do
with the things we wish we truly knew
but of silly things, of which we don't have a clue.

So, is technology a blessing before our eyes
or is it a curse in disguise?

I think only time will tell. If we destroy ourselves with it or not.
