1 How technology has led to moral decay in societies
2 What is TechnologyTechnology is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, crafts, systems, and methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve a pre-existing solution to a problem, achieve a goal, handle an applied input/output relation or perform a specific function. Technologies significantly affect human as well as other animal species' ability to control and adapt to their natural environments. The term can either be applied generally or to specific areas: examples include construction technology, medical technology, and information technology.
3 VocabularyModification: The action of modifying something. Slack: Not taut or held tightly in position; loose Gasoline: North American term for petrol. Decay: (of organic matter) rot or decompose through the action of bacteria and fungi.
4 1. Mankind's violent nature: technology has lead to the invention of numerous weapons that have lead to the deaths of nearly a billion people over our history (A-bomb, automatic rifle, sword and shield) 2. Over dependence: we have become over dependent on our machinery and cannot seem to function without it: (computers, television, automobiles.) 3. Related to the above is sloth: As machinery picks up the slack humans tend to become lazy. 4. Death of written arts: As television and the internet and gaming increase in popularity, pieces of written work fall into the background of culture. Most people in the younger age group were unaware of the lord of the rings until it was filmed.
5 5. Lose of local work: As the ability of satellite and telephone conferencing becomes more available it is possible to send more jobs abroad. Health problems: As the automobile has slowly progressed so has its fuel. The formula for gasoline has changed several times, one of the most harmful was a gasoline mixture with beryllium in it with has been proven to cause cancer.
6 7. Transference of technology to less mature users: It is widely known that the USA has given technology for war use to Israel and other countries in times of crisis, but what isn't well known is that the Taliban was a guerrilla group armed and trained by the United States that was meant to drive Communist Russia out of Afghanistan. After the Russians were defeated in Afghanistan in the 80's the people we trained formed terrorist groups (The Taliban) that were responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
7 8. Pollution: It causes harm to the atmosphere and oceans 8. Pollution: It causes harm to the atmosphere and oceans. The rate of atmospheric CO2 is increasing dramatically and it bears the signature of our automobiles. There is a mass and charge difference between the CO2 that power plants and cars produce vs natural CO2, but this is kept from the public to attempt to keep us burning fuel worry free. CO2 in the air cause acid rain or carbonic acid H2CO2 to form... it has lowered the pH in some parts of the ocean from 8 to 6.5.
