This is just a demo map that you can delete right away, if you feel like it...

Agree

Render individuals and society helpless and at a loss as to how to proceed without it

Internet addiction problems

Numerous Social Problems arise as a result of over-reliance on technology

poor communication and relational skills, over-reliance on chat rooms, facebook, little face-to-face interaction

undermining humanity, reducing Man to unfeeling, unthinking individuals, due to adoption of numerous virtual roles and identities

Man becoming increasingly lazy, especially younger generation, Simple, once arduous chores now easily done with technology's help

Countries and even terrorists increasingly relying on technology to assert their superiority e.g threaten other countries or terrorists activities

Technology such as nuclear weapons used as a threat by North Korea. Further destructive use of technology is used to counter such threats, threatening Man's peace and stability, More and more terrorists are also increasingly using technological tools in to further terrorize Man, e.g terrorists who struck Mumbai on Dec 8, 2008 used global positioning system handset, a satellite phone and studied satellite photos

Over-reliance on technology is at the expense of our environment

Mankind's health increasingly affected, Increasing obesity rates due to lack of exercise brought about by convenience and efficiency of technology, Harmful radiation that affect human brain due to over usage of cellphones can cause cancer such as Glioma that affects the central nervous system

Flora and Fauna increasingly affected, Clearing of forests for construction of factories, roads and houses, Over usage of pesticides contaminate the air, water and soil

Disagree

Mankind increasingly recognising problems our reliance on technology poses and taking steps to alleviate these problems by reducing our dependency

e.g environmental awareness and conservation, promoting outdoor activities and exercise etc

generally only those developed countries such as U.S placing excessive reliance on technology

Growing technological gap between the rich and the poor

Introduction

Address the issue of whether our excessive reliance on technology is causing us problems, rather than whether we are dependent or not on technology

Recognise to the extent to which technology has infiltrated our lives - in areas such as work, leisure/entertainment, information fathering, relationships and communication,travel and also in political and social spheres
