H@L0_F00 Posted September 7, 2009 Share Posted September 7, 2009 If technology can do it all for you, and the computer is always right, why not let it? Technology is obviously having both positive and negative impacts on society, mainly the United States, the laziest of countries. As everything becomes more automated and less user interactive, people become dependent on it. Being in high school, I see this as if from a sort of ground-zero and it's terrifying thinking that *this* is the next generation. From people who can't read, to people who need a calculator to perform simple addition, let alone multiplication, and what really gets at me, the people who just don't give a shit about *anything.* I'm appalled when I see foreigners speaking English as their third or fourth language with fluency and precise correctness that many U.S. citizens, who have been speaking only English since their first word, and have been studying it for about ten plus years, could never even dream of achieving. I can't imagine how the United States will be when my generation is forced to make difficult decisions that will affect others or when they'll all have to get jobs and McDonald's is *nationally* out of positions. Anyways, I'm done ranting. Here's the link posted on digg. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
