Ethical Use Of Technology.

I read the pages of history, and discovered thay, since the ages of scientific revolution, the way it evolved and constantly making progress, has created a bipolar perception among all of us who have seen how technology was used during the centuries.

I believe personally that, technology is a great power and enormous strength that has the potential to be the driving force of development and progress in our society. It would be outspokened and I cannot inhibit the influxes of the streaming technology that led us towards a positive march in greater part of our life.

It has certainly given us a prop to hope for a better future for us and our children, the future generation would be amazed with us, as the way we transferred the key to them. Its a matter of responsibility and a great part of pride for all of us, who are collaborating to take science even one step ahead, yes, we have a plus point here.

Technology and the modern day living standards are surely higher than ever as we compare present with past, the demands and scarcity that were so vivid and clear, now beinh replaced with abundance and adversity.

I always find meaning in our societies living when I see the change happened with Computer technology and the way internet provided us with precious gifts and hapiness.

When a kid finds a way to continue his academic education through the use of internet and its apps and modules, It gives me hope that our innovations didnt let us be down, rather it passed an alternative path in creating new dimension in distance learning.

When I see, the offices are closed down due to Covid outbreak and government enforcing laws to restrict live gatherings, as a byproduct of it, economic recession takes place, I see officers curbing their tight schedules and services well in good manner with personal computers and online websites.

That is the greater part of the story, the story of technology that gave us wings to fly when our hands are tied and we move even smarter, even faster and efficiently. I think, you quite guessed the allegory that I wanted to say to you.

On the other hand, my mind is not satisfied in contentments and its not happy with all the blessings that technology users did to us. But, I get even more apprehended when I get to see the worst, darker part of its misuse.
Its really devastating to narrate to you.

Not all the angels wander in tech world and scientific city, but the devils always run apace with the growth of the system.

If technology is used to cause harm to the innocents or used as a prop to dominate against the opponents, then the question of ethics come forward leaving the bright sides of it.
Its a matter of regret that technology sometims can be liable for slaughtering innocents, commiting for the cyber crimes, building deadly weapons to kill many lives and posing a bigger threat to humanity and existence.

People have the inherent tendency to push aside the drapery of ethics and good manner, like devils work they take the wrong side as their prop and that goes a long way to negativity.

Now, I want to ask you about your perception about the bipolarity of the technology we use. I used the term to showcase the actual scenario and happenings of technology, when it comes to use.

Please do opine if you have anything to say about the technology and its ethical usage.

Take my regards and all the best wishes to you.

Technology is definitely a great thing. We are able to what we are doing right now because of it. However there are evils to it. There are many who wish to control our every move and track every penny we spend. This is the bane of humanity and what needs to be kept in check and stopped. The current health situation is being used as an excuse to further the agenda of constant tracking and surveillance. They’ve had all of the tools they rolled out waiting in the wind for this very moment, salivating at the thought of putting more humans into a cage. It’s quite insidious and what many are trying to fight back against.

With that being said though, it’s incredible that we have the tools and ability to keep an eye on their moves, communicate with each other in the ways that we can and share content in the manner we do. Historically the group of people who are trying to censor and keep speech they don’t want people to hear away from a wide audience are the ones who are the evil doers and on the wrong side of the people. It takes understanding history and what happens in these situations to know that technology is our greatest asset as well as our greatest enemy. One hell of a duality!
